You should not attribute any genius to me for the best performing stock in my portfolio in April - which was Nekkar $NKRo with a 40.52% return. It was an old investment where I had my butt kicked, finally making a come back. I am almost at break even on it now - so I hope the market continues to see the potential I first saw in it. There is a financial dispute that hangs like a sword over the neck of this company. If it resolves in their favor, things will be sweet. If not, than not so much. Buyer beware !!!! Gamblers welcome :-)
Portfolio versus the S&P
Compared to the broader S&P market the portfolio gained 43% compared to 12% - so that was nice.
Long term performance is more important
Every dog has his day, so while it is fun to look at this great month. I would encourage you to look at my long term performance since 2016. Of course, the future is not always a reliable indicator of the future.
This is not investment advice
As always, this is not investment advice. You should do your own research. You should consult your professional advisors.
