Portfolio Allocation – More Moves February 29, 2008

Earlier this week, I made some change to my Portfolio Allocation. I’m starting to get this strange feeling of being a bit out of control. I have been considering a fund for some months now and after having decided to hold off, I changed my mind and made the plunge. I plugged $5K into an Africa / Middle-East fund (TRAMX) as part of my Roth IRA contributions for 2008. As far as my international holdings go, this felt like an area where I didn’t really have any exposure, so this was my solution to put me on the map, so to speak.

Over time, I could envision this taking up 5% of my portfolio. As I stand back a bit, I have a few lingering concerns:

  • Is my International exposure too much (40% now)
  • Am I chasing performance? (foreign markets have been outperforming for awhile now)
  • Being a bit too aggressive in my investing approach (usually have a significant stake in PRWCX which is no “hot rod” as far as investments go”.

These are just lingering thoughts. For now, I think I’m comfortable with them, but will be seeking the counsel of others on this topic (including any comments from readers). As most of you know, I’m a firm believer in being invested globally…so does not feel completely foreign (pun intended) to have such a large stake there. However, I don’t want to be foolish either (they have had a very nice run these last years).

Ideally, I’d like to set my allocations and then just let it run for awhile…I think I’m getting closer…just trying to get comfortable I guess.

What was your original Foreign allocation? If it was 20% or so, then this is the time to reallocate. You should decide what your plan is up front; you can reallocate once per year (this can help with tax planning), or when your target percent is exceeeded by a certain percent, say, 5%, or 10%. When one sector rises too quickly, the reallocation helps take some gains so you protect yourself a bit from that sector making a large correction.

I went to a church around wall street in new york city and looked at a few scriptures and the scriptures have some of the the ordinary time A humble king ..Like a tonal center in music , the note to which we keep returning in todays readings is humility . We wait in joyful expectation for the coming of our lords as king . But what we are told to expect and rejoice over is a meek and the humble king , riding on an ass . Not horses or chariots of the great and mighty , but a humble beast carries the ruler whose dominion streches , from the river to the ends of the earth (zechariah 9:10 ) this king comes to banish the tools of the warrior and bring peace . No wonder that a waery world rejoices and gives thanks to god…
