At $47.18, Alcan ( AL) is up 3 points in as many sessions. This is another stock I circled the wagons around as the market slid, buying 900 shares on the way down anywhere from 1 to 5 points below the current quote. With that in mind, I'm going to unload 300 shares of Alcan after you read this. This trade will leave me with 3,300 shares, or 4.1% of the overall portfolio.

I'm also going to sell another 500 shares of Ingersoll Rand ( IR), which will cut my position to 6,000 shares, or 6.8% of the overall portfolio. The industrial manufacturer serves many white-hot end-markets, and I believe the company once again will command a midteens earnings multiple over the next year.

So why sell Ingersoll here? I've had the room to add new names to the portfolio for some time now, though I've lacked the cash to do it. I was busy circling the wagons around some difficult stocks, and the portfolio definitely has benefited from being fully invested around the market bottom some two weeks ago.

That said, now that the Federal Reserve picture is becoming clearer, I'm once again on the search for new names. The sales I've made over the past week have given me the flexibility to add them, as I'm entering the third quarter with about 7% of the portfolio in cash.
