Vanguard Total Bond ETF Sold

Interactive Brokers PortfolioAnalystThe entire position in the Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND) held in the SMA Portfolio was sold this morning at $85.33. This sale was in preparation for the bold speculative trade mentioned in previous posts.

I’m considering including two other industries in the speculative move; video game publishers and shipping tankers. It is my opinion these industries are on the upswing and have reasonable valuations. The following names are of interest:

Activision Blizzard (ATVI)
Electronic Arts (EA)
Take-Two Interactive Software (TTW))
Ubisoft Entertainment (UBSFY)
Costamare (CMRE)
DHT Holdings (DHT)
Euronav (EURN)
Seaspan (SSW)
Scorpio Tankers (STNG)
Teekay Tankers (TNK)

The full implementation of this speculative trade is not assured. There is one remaining fixed income holding, the Morgan Stanley Emerging Markets Debt Fund, with a limit sell order outstanding.

To those long-time subscribers who signed up years ago, many of the recent e-mails of these alerts have been rejected for one reason or another (labeled as spam, etcetera). My apologies for this inconvenience.
