Today is the end of month three of The Acquirer’s Multiple $45,000 – Deep Value Stock Portfolio – Real Money Game, and the portfolio is up 22.62% since inception.
The Deep Value Stock Portfolio – Real Money Game means I’m investing my entire superannuation valued at $45,000 into a real life Acquirer’s Multiple Portfolio and documenting it here.
The plan is to build my portfolio over the next twelve months and ongoing. After twelve months I’ll have thirty stocks equally weighted in the portfolio, then I’ll re-balance each position after one year and one day to minimize tax.
I’ve been getting lots of emails from folks who would like to see my TAM portfolio (live) on the site without the need to wait for monthly updates, so now you can.
If you have a look in the right side-bar on the Blog page you’ll see this image under the heading TAM Live Portfolio:

Three months in I’m clearly happy with the performance of my portfolio. But life as a value investor guarantees there will be drawdowns around the corner so this is not the time to be overconfident. For now its just a matter of sticking to this evidence based strategy, removing the emotion, and watching how things unfold.
