My Portfolio Lites Results Summary Week Ending Tuesday 3rd Of May

You may need to click on the screen shot to see the details clearly

Overall this week has been a poor one in terms of performance with a loss of over £50. 

Bechers Brook was the biggest loser on the portfolio but I supposed a correction was coming after such a fantastic start.

The Market Examiner is still in positive territory which is very encouraging.

My Free Eachway Tips are going through a period of taking one step forwards, two steps back.

JERRY'S BEST BETS is showing a  loss overall but that is mainly down to only putting up a small amount of selections  since I added his selections to my Portfolio Lite, on past performance I know that this situation will change as the flat season gets into full swing.

My 16+ Runner Handicap method has dipped into negative territory.

I have added High Class Equine (HCE)  because they will be sending out there selections any day now so I want to get the structure of my reporting in place before that busy time, also I thought that if anyone was following the tipsters in my portfolio, it will give you ample time to check the High Class Equine (HCE) out.

As I said at the start of this post; overall this week has been a poor one in terms of performance of the portfolio but I believe that with the changes that I am making, the portfolio will only go from strength to strength over the long term.

On the advice of  Rowan my advisor ;-) at The Portfolio Investor blog I have used completely separate banks for each service so as to limit my exposure if more than one of the tipsters in my portfolio put the same horse up as a selection.

So as not to keep repeating the same information about the staking for each tipster within my portfolio I will be adding a separate page on the blog with all of the details of each tipster, staking and results.

I hope you have enjoyed this post.
Stay patient


  1. Mark,

    So organized and businesslike, your portfolio is an example for us all to running an operation gered for success.


  2. I don't understand why you keep banging on about HCE; they have very few selections and last year was not good. Having said that I do hope this season will return to the success of 2009.
    Good luck,
    Stu Peters (I have no google a/c etc. so am "anonymous")

  3. Hi Jake

    Thanks for the kind words friend.

    I believe (as I know that you do)that a professional approach is a prerequisite for success at this game.

    Thanks again

  4. Hi Stu

    You make a valid point, but I believe that HCE will be successful and a very important part of my portfolio.

    One of the main reasons I have included Jasons selections is for the educational value(from his write ups) as well as the profits that I expect to make.

    ~Thanks again for your comment.


  5. Hi Mark & Stu,

    Just a quick reply. I can't say I was overly impressed with last year's performance - it was a frustrating season in many ways. However, there is often a thin line between a good and bad year. It is true we are very selective - this year perhaps even more so than others. But we feel that the best opportunities are worth waiting for and feel confident that we will have a successful season. Time will tell but I don't have the slightest doubt in our ability. I intend to be as professional as anyone can be, show a disciplined approach and make this a worthwhile season for our readers.
