#HYHRD Watch List for July 21st $CVI $DDF $GUT $HTD $MUA $OUT $PML $PSJ $PTF $SACH $TERP $UTF

Howdy, Y’all!

I’m Pat Rosenheim, a.k.a. the PandA Trader.

This Watch List Update will be issued monthly, or as warranted. These results focus more on closed end funds and ETFs than other issues. This will also be the focus on a “go-forward” basis.

Hindsight can be 20/20, foresight not so much.

I can’t always “hit it out of the park”, but below are my targets.

My expectations for the #HYHRD (High Yield High Return Dividend) Portfolio:

I target a minimal annual return on price and NAV (both `10%?) and a minimum 5% dividend yield for income, or total annualized performance of 15% or greater.

I am hitting some of my targets, and regularly harvest and reinvest (or withdraw) gains.

Title of this post is not all-inclusive of securities selected for further scrutiny…

What follows is one of my methods to screen for possible addition to the watch lists, and the one I am currently using;

#HYHRD: TDM Dividend & Investment Tracking Software 7/20 $PHK $PHT $PMF $PML $PSF

Howdy, Y’all!

England_Pictures_216

I’m Pat Rosenheim, a.k.a. the PandA Trader.

NOTE: This post might be graphic-intensive, so might take a while to load on a mobile device.

NOTE: Reconciliation has been completed for all portfolios in TDM, so there should be no discrepancies.

NOTE: I absolutely love this program! Do yourself a favor and download it now. Give it a go for the 45-day free trial. If you like it, pay for it. If not, then don’t pay. Smiple! 😉 I am finding it more and more indispensable! Don’t be afraid to report bugs to the author, he can’t fix them if he doesn’t know about them. I’ve asked for enhancements, and he has added some of them. He usually responds within a day!

I decided to start using the TDM Dividend & Investment Tracking Software. I downloaded it from http://www.thomasdividendmanager.com/index.php/download-tdm and I was good to go!

It’s different from my spreadsheet, and a lot less work for me. The TDM software gets most of the dividend dates, ex-dividend dates, etc. It then calculates the expected dividends, and is often closer to actual dividends received than my spreadsheet! So, I just post the screenshots here each week to let you all have a look at what the software is doing for me as far as recording stock buys & sells, dividends, etc.

I will set up the accounts to DRIP dividends since there is a possibility I might be getting a discount. I love discounts! I love dividends! Discounted dividend stock sends me into a slight euphoria! (Not now, but maybe later…)

So, first I look at the accounts;

tdm

This window pops up if you have more than one account and click the account name in the lower left corner. You can also set the location for the program data here.

For this post, I am going to look at the portfolio view(s) for each account, and we’ll take it from the top, so first on the list is PANDA and then we’ll continue down the list one by one. I’ll also post the dividend calendar and upcoming DRIPs, if any, for each account.

Ready? Here we go…

#HYHRD: The #Plan for the foreseeable future 7/20 $OXLC $PCI $PDI $PDT $PFO

Howdy, Y’all!

meatwbnh

I’m Pat Rosenheim, a.k.a. the PandA Trader.

So, I decided I should probably post about my #PLAN for the foreseeable future. A lot of people ask about my investment theses, so that seems to justify this post. Let’s see if I can even begin to support that statement.

THE PLAN:

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ABR, AGD, ARCC, AWP, BFK, BGH, BSD, BST, BXMX, CSQ, DDF, DIAX, DNP, ECC, FLC, FREL, FTF, GAIN, GOF, GUT, HE, HEI, HTD, HYG, IGN, IGV, IHI, IYLD, JLS, JQC, LDP, LGI, LOR, MAIN, MHD, MUA, NEWT, NRO, NVG, NZF, OIA, OXLC, PCI, PDI, PDT, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PSF, PSJ, PTF, RFI, RNP, RQI, SACH, TPZ, UTF, UTG, VPV, & XMMO. Quite a list, eh? (62 total issues held; 8 common stocks, 9 ETFs, and 45 CEFs, of which 10 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ABR, ARCC, BXMX, DIAX, FREL, HE, IGN, IGV, IHI, NEWT, PSJ, PTF, SACH, & XMMO pay quarterly. HEI pays semi-annually, and some ETFs don’t pay at all!

I will continue to withdraw funds as needed to augment our income as outlined in my monthly income phase of The #Plan #UPDATE.

I’ll try to outline a bit of the rest of the #Plan each week with updates on my thinking, such as it is…

These are the current and upcoming declared dividend pay dates and amount(s) expected from each stock (usually projected on the ex-dividend date, or after market close the prior trading day).

These amounts are a compilation from all of our accounts, so some is taxable, some is tax-deferred, but most is tax-free. If you check out my Expected dividend spreadsheets you can see how it all breaks down, or you could just read my posts and look at the screenshots (ooooh, pretty pictures!).

The table, charts, and dial of monthly dividends since inception as found on my Dividends Received page on my blog follows;

It’s time for the ~weekly review of activity and positions in the HYHRD (High Yield High Return Dividend) portfolio.

The spreadsheets for each individual account are now found in the Google docs spreadsheet.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ABR, AGD, ARCC, AWP, BFK, BGH, BSD, BST, BXMX, CSQ, DDF, DIAX, DNP, ECC, FLC, FREL, FTF, GAIN, GOF, GUT, HE, HEI, HTD, HYG, IGN, IGV, IHI, IYLD, JLS, JQC, LDP, LGI, LOR, MAIN, MHD, MUA, NEWT, NRO, NVG, NZF, OIA, OXLC, PCI, PDI, PDT, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PSF, PSJ, PTF, RFI, RNP, RQI, SACH, TPZ, UTF, UTG, VPV, & XMMO.

#HYHRD: check out my spreadsheets edition for 7/20 $HEI $HTD $HYG $IGN $IGV

Howdy, Y’all!

3andme

I’m Pat Rosenheim, a.k.a. the PandA Trader.

I use Google spreadsheets for my holdings and to record dividends. They are as up-to-date as I can manage, but will lag by a day or so due to delays in the cost basis reporting from the brokerages. The share prices should update close to real-time, however, with a possible slight delay (~20 minutes) from Google (or any other source that I use). Also, there now appears to be a very real existential threat to these spreadsheets; Google has “updated” the Finance portion of their website, and all financial functions ceased functioning on the Google sheets recently. It has since started functioning again. I may stop using these sheets altogether, but they are still there. For now…

Ready?

Let’s go!
