*This real-money portfolio was first introduced to the Seeking Alpha community in December 2015.

*The portfolio underperformed its benchmark in Q1 2020 and it is lagging the S&P 500's performance since late-2015.

*The portfolio was overweight financials and industrials going into Q1 2020 and that turned out to be a terrible decision given the fallout from COVID-19.

*However, I still believe that this portfolio is in a great position to benefit from 3 major trends in 2021 and beyond.

See the article linked above for additional details on what I would like to accomplish with these quarterly updates. Additionally, the goals for the portfolio and my long-term strategy are identified in the article.
