Portfolio December investment results.
Recall that our first goal is to beat the returns of the S&P500 index. The second is to get a portfolio return of 20% or more.
At the end of December 2019, we have received a holding period return of 24%, while a benchmark investment in the S&P500 index brought in only 11.91%. As you can see, the use of Machine learning predictions made it possible to obtain returns of more than 2 times higher.
As for monthly November return, we have got 5% for our portfolio, while a benchmark investment in the S&P500 index brought 2.39%.
Over the past period, there have been changes in the composition of the portfolio. At the end of December, we have bought shares of VIXM ETF. We did this to lower our portfolio Beta below 1.
In December a dividends of $ 21.27 were received.
At the end of December, we had 1573$ of free cash.
