Outlook for August 2020

Q2 earnings season is in full swing and the big (and small) tech are knocking it out of the park. Trillion-dollar companies are jumping higher by 5-10% in a matter of hours. Tech stocks may be the most crowded trade, but it is also seeing immense tailwind that has accelerated adoption rates & provides a clear path for increased growth over coming years.

It also looks like inflation is being stoked left, right and center. In the US, fiscal stimulus is expected to continue until the end of the year and monetary stimulus expected until next spring. In other words, no one is taking the punch bowl away, so party on!

Outlook for August 2020

I hit another portfolio all time high on the coattails of recent market rally as I continued deploying more capital in recent weeks. I do hold a bit of cash in order to have some dry powder in case of a pullback.

Not much has changed in recent weeks. I continue to look for opportunities to upgrade my portfolio and concentrate on high quality companies and let the compounding do its work as my wealth builds up.

Following are the returns of my portfolio holdings at the end of July 2020.

  1. We are cautiously optimistic going into the second half of the year. Our tech stocks are doing pretty good also. Our biggest holding jumped almost 40% on a nice Q2 MAU report.

    Overall we are holding and waiting for better times, picking up shares in companies we think will do well over the next few years.
