Fool Portfolio Report
Wednesday, November 22, 1995
Warning: Tonight's abbreviated holiday report features almost nothing of substance. Happy Thanksgiving!
What an uneventful way to lose 2%!
And what a bad week. Blech.
Once again, the Dow ran up to another all-time high, leaving everything else in the dust as the S&P 500, the NASDAQ, and the FOOL all declined. And once again, the Fool Portfolio took it on the chin hardest of all. Talk about limping along to the close of a month! The Fool, up 5.75% for the month less than a week ago, closed today up just .24% for the month. Our historic return dropped a smidgeon below 80%. Boo hoo.
Other than a few piddling press releases from General Electric, we have no specific news to account for the significant drops you see in our portfolio, detailed to the right. America Online settled just a bit, but an uppercut from Iomega, a right-and-left-cross combo from Applied Materials and KLA Instruments, and a few putaway jabs from Chevron and GE knocked us out.
We very much expect Friday's half-day to be better. We'll see you then.
Best wishes for a Thursday full of bountiful givings of bountiful thanks.
