now ZCL has down quite a lot, should I buy more ZCL?
The model is already 100% invested, and i don't think it has the "feature" to average down if you want to strictly follow the model. Of course, nothing to stop you from average down as your own decision.

If one has a lot of money in this model, it might make sense to rebalance keeping the weight at 10% for each stock (selling a few top winners to buy the biggest losers). To avoid high commissions, I'd use only dividends to buy more of the underperforming ones.

The model doesn't expect one to add extra money to underperforming stocks. Remember that close to half of stocks are sold for a loss. If there's extra money to be added, I'd distribute evenly to the 10 stocks. The goal is equal weight.

Canadian tire took a beating lately after being up for awhile. Might pick some up since i missed the train initially when the model gave it a go signal.

CTC.A is still highly ranked. Actually, all of them are a buy today according to the model (rank > 80), and I expect no action required on Monday (Tuesday actually).

I am up 13,75% since the model restarted (excluding all dividends, I don't drip) up by 2 063$ with 15 000$ starting funds. SIS is the biggest winner whereas ZCL is the biggest laggard. Currently invested at 90%, missing CTC as I ran out of funds. How about you guys?

I'm getting worried about SIS... It's gone up quite a bit in the last little bit. Will hold until the model says otherwise.

Up 11.30% excluding dividends. I started since the inception of the model, following all instructions.

Mine vs SPTSX according to Google Finance. Not sure if Google includes div in the total, probably not.

Yeah about SIS... kinda tempting to balanced it down. But my transaction cost is a bit high ($6.95) to do fine-tuned rebalance.

Stats updated on first post.

I'm expecting ZCL to be sold on Monday, for a steep loss unfortunately. However, I continue to be happy with the model performance, including beating the market performance every month since February.
