Fellow Copiers, Let me first welcome all new mates and lads to our team. Yes, i hear you, the timing eToro choose to open my account for new copiers again was ... lets call it mediocre ;-) Nevertheless, we are here for the long run and in the end some bad weeks will not stop us from reaching our goals. The old crew member which started copying me back in January and February went also through some stormy weeks in February and March but in end all came out "alive" with some nice profit in their pockets. Everyone :-) Because we have always around 20% cash laying around we are able to by down the dip and thats the reason why month like april can happen afterwards (+19.44%) This week i added <a href="/markets/fslr" class="e-link">$FSLR (First Solar, Inc.)</a> and <a href="/markets/sedg" class="e-link">$SEDG (SolarEdge Technologies)</a> which got hit hard by Trumps tariffs but in my opinion has still a awesome long term potential. As some of you may already know a big part of my portfolio is based on low P/E, great potential companies and therefore we picked up <a href="/markets/intc" class="e-link">$INTC (Intel)</a> which fits perfectly with under 15 (P/E 13,42) after they lost nearly 9% in the last 19 days and <a href="/markets/aiz" class="e-link">$AIZ (Assurant Inc)</a> with a P/E of 11,42. The <a href="/markets/wdi.de" class="e-link">$WDI.DE (Wirecard)</a> position was firtly picked just because their dividend payout we cashed in but i like this german stock and even we have it with x2 leverage i will keep it a bit longer. Speaking about dividend we added <a href="/markets/acs.mc" class="e-link">$ACS.MC (ACS)</a>, <a href="/markets/scyr.mc" class="e-link">$SCYR.MC (Sacyr)</a> with x2 leverage and will closed these positions the moment we turn green after we picked up the dividend. It’s part of the plan to keep the cashback higher than the fees monthly that we never have to pay any fee at all. From time to time we add also stocks like <a href="/markets/pbyi" class="e-link">$PBYI (Puma Biotechnology Inc)</a> which plummed nearly -50% this year after not getting there breast cancer therapy approved in the European Union. I still belive in the future and inovation and for this price in my eyes its a bargin. Sure we get it without leverage cause that stock alone is exiting enough (no need to make it a CFD and gamble even more) <a href="/markets/ba" class="e-link">$BA (Boeing)</a> which lost also 9% this moth came back in as well as <a href="/markets/baba" class="e-link">$BABA (Alibaba)</a> which we traded already alot with quite some sucess. This week we also increased our german exposure after the <a href="/markets/ger30" class="e-link">$GER30</a> lost some ground by adding solid <a href="/markets/ads.de" class="e-link">$ADS.DE (Adidas AG)</a> <a href="/markets/sie.de" class="e-link">$SIE.DE (Siemens Aktiengesellschaft)</a> and <a href="/markets/vow3.de" class="e-link">$VOW3.DE (Volkswagen AG)</a> just to prove Ray Dalio and his Bridewater wrong ;-) Some stocks you see coming and going and food stocks are one of my favorites to trade. They seem to run exceptional well when all other stocks have a hard time. Food is always needed even in harder time. This week <a href="/markets/sbux" class="e-link">$SBUX (Starbucks Corporation)</a> and <a href="/markets/dpz" class="e-link">$DPZ (Dominos Pizza Inc)</a> found their way back in our portfolio and the coming week we may add <a href="/markets/yum" class="e-link">$YUM (Yum Brands Inc)</a> and <a href="/markets/mcd" class="e-link">$MCD (McDonalds)</a> as well to have the fantastic four reunited. I wont go over all the small currency trades but let me name my favorite <a href="/markets/audjpy" class="e-link">$AUDJPY</a> which is our to-go pair to trade down with the market. No fees, even better daily cashback so we have alot of time to let it come back up again and help us boost up the profit Specially for our newer eToro members it may be scary to start the first week of a copy with -1% or even -2% but dont forget, this is a long-term game. Drawbacks are part of the game and they happen frequently if you wanna reach more than the 4% a year a bank may pay ;-) As always you will see me preparing sunday night some orders for the upcommiong week. You can chekc them out by choosing the "Trades" tab in my feed. Feel free to ask questions or ad your comments here and i wish us all a great weekend. Your Chris aka Xparts ... Show More
