Portfolio

I chose OCN for the periodic purchase. I bypassed AAPL, ASPS and JAZZ because I already own them; TGE and GEOI because they are in the same group as MWE; DXPE and TREX because they are more than halfway towards a trend reversal; DTV because the uptrend has not been extended in almost a year; and VRTX because it is in the same group as JAZZ.
