My largest positions have a few changes from a year ago. I sold Hanover Foods and Putprop at a loss. I sold ITIC at breakeven. And Petsmart exited by going private. I normally hold on to winning position in non-retirement account as I prefer to avoid taxes. But the company made the decision for me by going private. My new investments on the list are Senvest Capital and Pacific Healthcare.
Anthem (formerly Wellpoint) had a great year along with other health insurance companies. Seaboard jumped to as high as $4640 per share early this year. But I hesitated selling because I was to attend the annual meeting in April. That was a big mistake because it didn't stay that high for long. Now it is back to $3330 today. My best position TTM was IEHC because I doubled my position after attending the annual meeting.
I have held the three largest stocks plus the Bruce Fund for a while. But all the rest were purchased within the last 3 years. And I am still waiting for a lot of them to breakout. For example EUPIC, Senvest and New Century are trading at nowhere close to book value. And these three are perfectly fine and profitable companies. So, I think this portfolio has a lot of potential energy to release, when given enough time.
