A bad week for White Trash

It's been a bad week for the White Trash portfolio, but then it hasn't been a terrific week for the market in general.

White Trash investors saw the value of their portfolio dip 1.42% in the last three days, meaning that $10,000 invested at inception would now be worth $9,857.90.

By way of comparison, over the exact same time period:
  • DIA, an ETF which tracks the Dow Jones Industrial Average, is down 0.69%
  • VTI, an ETF which tracks the performance of the broad US stock market as a whole, is down 0.61%
  • IYC, an ETF which tracks the Dow Jones Consumer Cyclical index, is down 0.71%.
Whew. It's at times like this that you want to relax with comfort food (such as a Big Mac), drink a shot of Jack, chase it with a Coke, and finish everything off by smoking a Marlboro.

I hope.
