This page will list my current holdings and past performance. I usually post a full evaluation at the end of the year.

My goal is to remain transparent and disclose everything except dollar amounts. My portfolio is small and nearly all my money is invested in what you see here (except for some emergency cash.)

(Note: There are some discrepancies relating to currency fluctuations and a small mistake with either the annualized return or the cumulative return (I'll get around to fixing these issues.))

Current Holdings
Last Update: September 27, 2017

Monsanto (MON) [36%]

Legacy Holdings (old; generally mistakes to be sold)


Cash [64%]

Your Porfolio sounds like too emotional and failed to beat average market performance.

MRH will probably take hit with Japanese disaster. It is your big holding. What are your IV estimate range for MRH?
Do you plan to add more if it gets sufficiently attractive?
