13F Filings

The Security, Class, and CUSIP columns in the table below are shown exactly as filed by the investor. We do our best to track continuity of investments through acquisitions, and this will be reflected in the table as changes in names and cusips.

In addition to descriptive data, performance of the investment is shown over time. To calculate quarterly performance, we first calculate cost basis of the shares purchased during the quarter, then use that to calculate gross profit. Quarterly return is Gross Profit / Starting Portfolio value.

Note that cost basis is calculated and stored in thousands, so small quarterly changes in shares frequently result in a cost basis of zero.

A Tale Of Two Gold Corrections

2018-10-10 seekingalpha
To committed long-term gold investors, gold’s poor performance in the last six months may seem to be a sure sign that the metal’s longer-term outlook is perpetually bearish. As we’ll examine in today’s report, however, gold’s percentage losses since April are far less than in the comparable six-month correction in 2016 (which was followed by a strong rebound). I’ll also argue here that while gold still has the potential for a rebound this fall, the bulls will have to act quickly due to the gradual strengthening in the dollar/gold ratio.
