The portfolio is generally doing well. We will consider selling ConocoPhillips (COP) which has been selling off assets to pare down debt and reduced their dividend. Their stock has stabilized but this may not be the best oil play. We are also sticking with ExxonMobil (XOM) which we bought near a high because that company has proven to be well run over the last few decades.
In the new “analytics” tab you can see that this portfolio has a heavy non-US component, with 62% of stocks from non-US countries. We have 2 of the 3 major Chinese internet companies and also 2 large Canadian banks, among others.
