CSI Update, January 2021, Private Subscribers

We stopped publishing our free weekly CSI Blog after 10 years of publishing at the end of 2015. We are following our 2 remaining open positions until the end.

In late 2015 I started offering a paid subscription service which is similar to the Blog, but we tell you exactly what stocks we bought and why—and sold every day, with a weekly summary of activity, open positions, how many shares we own and their valuations.

Through January, 2021, I have averaged a 46.8% gain on the 51 stocks I have sold (48 winners and 3 losers) in my private portfolio since January 1, 2016. Twelve of the 51 stocks have had buy-out offers, including six in 2017 and two in 2018, none in 2019 and two in 2020.

My total portfolio was up 30.6% in 2020 and 72.8% in 2019.I took profit in almost the entire gains and banked it in cash.

2021 has been a barnburner for me. I am up 19.6% compared to the DOW which is down 2%, NASDAQ which is up 1.4%.
