The-Wiseguy.com had an ETF?
We have started a new operation. It is called: “TWISE-ETF” (The What If Stock Experiment). It is a working title. To explain it in simple words what if the-wiseguy.com had its own ETF trading only on our selected “Wiseguys” and conforming to our “Traffic light” for what to buy and what to sell. And maybe even more important when we do it and why we do that.
We (re)started this website in Q1 2020 and after a few growing pains we ran at full strenght from about May 2020. It is a full out Bull market as we are now recovering from the coronavirus lockdowns. All stocks are doing great and our model portfolio has already reached that 40% target this year. We claim to bring you at least a 40% annual profit every year. So we needed to check if all our good intentions explained in our strategy and arising therefrom our stockpicks in the list of wiseguys should actually result in a profitable fund. That is our very own The-Wiseguy.com ETF.
Off course Bill-Bull and I have our own portfolios and you can see the performance on our website. But the problem with that is that our private portfolios are made up out of shares we have owned for much longer. We started this website in June 2020. And we should actually have a portfolio that starts at the same time. So we are going to run a portfolio on yahoo finance that does just that. It meets all the requirements we set for our wiseguys stock and buy and sell orders we post on our website.
At the start of this ETF the traffic light condition was “Green” with 79% Stock and 21% Cash. That resulted in $1,050,000 in stock and $250,000 in cash.
We started this ETF on June 15th 2020 with an initial value of $1,300,00.00
Our current value is $1,442,414.14

Mainly driven by the jump in FANTANG stock(split) news. Other than that it was a really slow week which is confirmed by our “Traffic light“ because it is stuck at 60% stock (and 40% cash). Maybe we need a pause for reflection. That is why we have the “Traffic light“. Sometimes it is better to just wait and see what will happen than to rush in because of FOMO*. The-Wiseguy once said: “Sometimes patience is a stocktraders most effective weapon” ….. Ooooh and fomo means fear of missing out 😉 …..
