When Bullish Cross 2.0 went live in mid-June we created different model portfolios in order to demonstrate to our members how to execute a lot of the strategies we discuss on a day to day basis. Three of these portfolios were introduced on Friday, June 17, 2011 while the fourth portfolio was introduced on Friday, August 26, 2011. We continue to put together different models whenever we want to demonstrate how to execute some major investment strategy.
In terms of the performance of these portfolios, we are absolutely crushing it. As of the close on Friday, September 23, 2011 — just about 3-months after introducing these portfolios — Bullish Cross is up a cumulative total of 30.47%, which is actually pretty incredible considering the fact that the S&P 500 is down just about 10.6% over the same exact period.
The cost basis of these Bullish Cross Model Portfolios in total is $4,320,000.00. If someone invested that $4.32 million in the S&P 500 at the moment that Bullish Cross introduced its model portfolios, that person would be down just about half a million dollars ($457,920.00). Their account value would have dropped from $4.32 million to $3.86 million in just 3 months time.
Yet, if this person had hypothetically decided to invest that capital with Bullish Cross instead, he or she would be up $1.316 MILLION and have an account valued at $5,636,085.00. That is a 41.07% difference between how the S&P 500 has performed, and how Bullish Cross has performed over the last 3-month period.
Moreover, even with this outperformance, Bullish Cross holds a massive amount of its portfolio in cash on the sidelines. In fact, over $1.9 million or 33.7% of the $5.636 million overall portfolio is held entirely in cash. The chart below compares Bullish Cross to the S&P 500 since June 17, 2011 when the portfolios were introduced. Please notice that while the September 23, 2011 comparison to the S&P 500 is perfectly accurate, some of the historical points are very close estimates. The September 23, 2011 NAV is exactly accurate however. And that’s all the matters in the end:
We’ll be posting more details later in the week…
