By David Levine It is time for my monthly update and the market seems to be very dull, so I find myself with very little to write about and no transactions to report. However, I do have a large position in my Aspect Large Cap Value Investment portfolio - one that you probably have as well, and one that people rarely discuss: cash. Since this market is so confusing right now, I have more than 20% of the portfolio in cash, and I am finding it hard to find stocks to invest in. That said, in my opinion cash actually is an investment, and one that has certain benefits depending on how this portion of your portfolio is utilized to balance out everything else. While cash, or in this case money market funds, do not generate what I consider to be a meaningful return on investment, it does generate an almost absolute guaranteed return of your investment, minus the corrosive effects of inflation.
