Recent Idea Performance Review & Positioning Updates (August 2023)
Performance Update and Positioning Insights
In this post, I provide a performance update on 10 recently posted ideas as well as provide updated views on positioning. I believe some of these have overextended their recent gains and would close them or trim them at the very least.
In terms of return attribution methodology, I am using end of day prices as of the publishing date or last trading date, if applicable. Note these returns are all approximations and I am using the Bloomberg Total Return function to calculate these for consistency purposes. I’ve provided S&P 500 and High Yield Index returns over the corresponding periods for benchmark comparison purposes. This is not an official track record or recommendation by any means.
