Two Buys: PepsiCo And Qualcomm

2017-10-18 seekingalpha
This is a brief portfolio update. A goal for September-December, 2017 is to raise cash. Most of the time I'm fully invested. The portfolio cash position on July 31 was a rock-bottom 0.2%. By August 31, the cash position was up to 2.66%. By September 30, it grew to 3.89%. As of October 17, cash is now 6.77% of the portfolio. If you're chuckling at this point, I completely understand. Many people routinely hold 20% cash or more, particularly in a bull market to maintain some "dry powder" for a pullback. (49-0)
