#HYHRD: portfolio #review 9/17 $ARI-A $ARR-B $BDJ $BGH $CLNY-C $CMRE-D $CMU $CSI $CXE $DFP

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

The spreadsheet 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; ARI-A, ARR-B, BDJ, BGH, CLNY-C, CMRE-D, CMU, CSI, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, FFC, FHY, FLC, FPF, GOF, GUT, HHY, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HTD, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, MAV, MFM, MHI, NMZ, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PSF, RNP, RQI, RSO-C, STK, TOO-B. Quite a list, eh? (46 total issues held; 0 common stocks, 6 Preferreds, and 40 CEFs.)

These series of blog posts are sometimes delayed, and used to be issued weekly. Since the majority of our holdings pay dividends near the end and/or beginning of the month it’s no longer warranted to issue so frequently. There are usually 4 posts in this series, plus the sharebuilder updates are issued twice a month. I think you should try to catch all 4, plus the sharebuilder update if you’re so inclined. Occasionally I’ll throw something else up for ridicule or admiration like my recent post about “Profiting from Preferreds”, so feel free to be entertained! I just put another post up titled “Rolling on the #dividend train” and will keep that updated through next week…

This post examines all positions in the accounts. The trade logs are no longer updated because; a) it was a duplication of effort (the brokerage does it automatically), b) it was exceedingly tedious, c) figures from the brokerage were subject to change, making totals only approximate, and d) maybe it doesn’t need to be updated so frequently. I will post performance screenshots from our brokerages when they are available.

I will no longer post screenshots from the Thomas Dividend Manager program (link below in the weekly update) for each account in our portfolio.

Not currently tracked or reported is my wife’s TSA, except for quarterly updates on the 2016 Balances sheet.

“Smithers, release the hounds!”

  • To date (from the Google sheets, for all holdings):
    • Expected Dividends now shows $14,802.28 per year with yield on cost of 8.743733% on total cost of $169,290.12.
    • Unrealized change now shows $2,626.72 or 1.53% since purchase, leaving total value of the portfolio at $171,916.83.

Let’s see how the rest of it breaks down;

Here’s what the #HYHRD (High Yield High Return Dividend) portfolio performance screenshots looks like today;

First, sharebuilder;


Next, Fidelity;


This data is further broken down on each separate sheet on our spreadsheets (but not shown here to save time and space).

  • September 17th Update
    • I stopped using the TDM (Thomas Dividend Manager) program from www.dividendsoftware.com.
    • It seems CEF dividend info is hard to find and keep updated, so the information in TDM was incorrect.
    • Monthly withdrawals from settled cash in our accounts continue to augment our income.
    • Withdrawals are subject to a minimum withdrawal amount of $10.00 (No withdrawals will be taken if under $10.00).
    • Capital One Investing (sharebuilder) Automatic Investment Plan invested a pro-rated $1,065.00 on 9/6/16.
    • Automatic investments now usually take place on the 1st Tuesday of every month, but might change…
      • FFL, FLC, PFD, PFO, & PHT are being DRIPped in both Roth IRAs because they reinvest at a discount!
    • Five of my dividends from 6/30 & 7/29 were still showing “pending reinvestment” days later in our Fidelity accounts (FFC, FLC, PFD, PFO, & PHT).
      • UPDATE: Only PHT had yet to be ‘worked’. FFC, FLC, PFD, & PFO have been reinvested at a very nice discount!
    • I “chatted them up” to find out what was going on. Seems these 5 are part of a DTC Discount Plan. I learned something new!
    • The DTC Discount Plan allows reinvestment at a potential discount price between 0-5%. Although the DTC Discount Plan offers the benefit of a discount, please note the following:
      • DTC guidelines state that discounted reinvestment prices can take on average up to 15 business days to post. You will still receive the reinvestment, but it may not be posted to your account immediately.
      • The issuer determines the DTC discount price. Fidelity cannot provide any reinvestment information until the reinvestment appears in the account.
      • Additionally, because Fidelity does not determine the discount price, we cannot provide DTC calculations.
      • The eligibility of a security may change after you enroll in dividend reinvestment.
      • A security may be DTC discount eligible when you enroll in the service, but it could change its status to DTC discount ineligible.
      • If a position is sold while waiting for the DTC dividend reinvestment, Fidelity credits the account with cash, not stock.
    • DTC stands for Depository Trust Company.
  • Pleased with the results from the “#HYHRD: Rolling on the #dividend train” experiment. Over $3,500 gain. I can live with it.
  • Well, last Friday’s market dump turned an unrealized gain into an unrealized loss, so it looks like there will be no capital gain harvest anytime soon!
  • I have decided to no longer post or update the trade logs because;
    1. it was a duplication of effort (the brokerage does it automatically)
    2. it was exceedingly tedious
    3. figures from the brokerage were subject to change for a few days, making totals only approximate
    4. maybe it doesn’t need to be updated so frequently.

Here’s a look at our balances from the 2016 Balances sheet (updated ~monthly, and usually a week or so late);


This is a screenshot of a table at the bottom of my holdings sheet that shows; position size rank (except CA$H), % change since purchase rank, rank by yield, and rank by total return. The latest info is on my google sheets.
