With so many stocks transforming into great charts the past 1-2 weeks, there is no reason to hold on to some of these laggards. Hence, I am going to punt the last 0.3% allocation of Assured Guaranty (AGO) in the mid $20s area. This will be a 11% loss on the small stake remaining.
60% of the position was stopped out in $21.50s on Feb 4th; ironically during the January correction this was the 2nd to last stock we owned to break below the 50 day moving average - exhibiting great relative strength. But in the February rebound, the stock has withered and not performed. We'll open up a slot for stocks with more promising near term charts.
On the other hand, Indian Bank HDFC Bank (HDB) is looking better of late, so I will add a 1% allocation to this name despite a valuation that I find quite expensive.
