Current GorillaTrades Portfolio as of (4/1/15)
Although the stock market fell again today, the GorillaTrades portfolio was only slightly weaker. Among the current GorillaPicks that fell, most dropped 1%-2% or less, only two (Advance Auto Parts-AAP and Restoration Hardware-RH) lost more than 2%-3%, and neither fell more than 3%-4%. Three GorillaPicks (Alexion Pharm.-ALXN, The Macerich Co.-MAC and Celgene-CELG) did stop out today as a result of raised stop levels, but each resulted in profits of 3%, 19.5%, and 24%, respectively. Four different GorillaPicks rose 2%-3% each, while SunEdison (SUNE) gained 4.6%. Thus, even after another negative day in the overall stock market, 48 of the 54 confirmed GorillaPicks in the GorillaTrades portfolio still hold unrealized gains, including 30 with double-digit gains. And this number is a bit deceiving because three of the six GorillaPicks that are lower are down by just a fraction of 1%. Four different GorillaPicks hold 20%-29% unrealized gains. Five more hold 30%-39% gains. O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) holds a 41% gain. Arch Capital (ACGL) and Apple (AAPL) hold 62% and 63% gains, respectively. Abbott Labs (ABT) holds a 68% gain. Advance Auto Parts (AAP) and Global Payments (GPN) hold 72% and 89% gains, respectively, while Monster Beverage (MNST) leads the portfolio with a whopping 93% gain! In addition, 42 of the GorillaPicks have achieved their first target.
