12:35 p.m. New York time

I exited one stock position, IBTX, from today’s focus portfolio, Growth, and entered two positions in that portfolio. SNX in Growth and IMKTA in Value were both moved to the Bench as they ceased to qualify for their strategy portfolios. MOD qualified again for the Value portfolio and left the Bench, no doubt happy to be back in the game.

The details:

  • Growth
    • Exit
      • IBTX, for a $55.17 credit per share, a return of $1.53 over 11 days, or 2.8%, a 94% annual rate.
    • Entries
      • LITE, for a $92.30 debit per share.
      • STM, a $30.88 debit.
    • Benched
      • SNX
  • Value
    • Benched
      • IMKTA
    • Returned from Bench
      • MOD
