Caribbean Masters Competition Standings -WK44

MASTERS ARTICLE & STANDINGS
WEEK 44 
This week we take a look at where the competitors are positioned in the 2009/2010 season of the Today’s Money Caribbean Masters’ Competition for the week ended 11th November, 2009.
At week forty-four (44) of the Caribbean Masters’ Competition 2009/2010, Donette Johnson continued to hold the lead position which she took over from Jason Dear eight weeks ago. Donett leads with a total portfolio value of J$776487.29. This represents an increase of $521,540.83 or 204% over her position at week thirty-six (36) of the competition. Donette has been very active in both the local equity market as well as those of Trinidad & Tobago and Barbados. Of her total portfolio value, Donette held 86% in the equities market (including Jamaica Broilers and Sagicore Life Jamaica units in Jamaica, and Supreme Ventures, Guardian Holdings, and National Commercial Bank units in Trinidad & Tobago), 4% in a money market repo, and 10% in cash. At week forty-four (44) of the competition Donette’s annualized return amounted to 799.5%. When I asked Donette how she is able to make such good returns in a rough environment, she points to the fact that there are always good investment opportunities if the equities markets are carefully monitored and examined.
Jason Dear held second position with a total portfolio value of $305,522.77. This represents an increase of $62,694.75 or approximately 26% when compared to his position eight weeks ago at week thirty-six (36). His current total portfolio value represents an annualized gain of 242.9%. Jason has not been as active in the equity markets as he had been earlier in the competition. Of his total portfolio value, Jason held 14% in the equities market (representing Capital & Credit Financial Group units), 7% in the money market and 79% in cash.
Michelle, who holds third position, had a total portfolio value of J$222,355.18. This represents an increase of $31,004.77 or 16% over her position at week thirty-six (36). Her annualized return amounts to 144.6%.  Meanwhile Jason Gokool, the sole none-Jamaican competitor from Trinidad and Tobago, had a total portfolio value of J$101,198.67, representing a decline of J$3,052.15 or 2.9% when compared to his position eight weeks ago.
