#HYHRD: portfolio #review 10/8 $LDP $LEO $MAV $MFM $MHI $NAD $NMZ $NVG $NZF $OIA $PDT $PFD $PFO

It’s time for the weekly review of 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; ARR-B, BBK, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, CMU, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, EVN, FFC, FHY, FLC, FMN, FPF, GOF, GUT, HHY, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, IQI, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAV, MFM, MHI, NAD, NMZ, NRO, NVG, NZF, OIA, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMO, PMX, PSF, RFI, RNP, RQI, UTF. Quite a list, eh? (59 total issues held; 0 common stocks, 1 Preferred issue, and 58 CEFs.)

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 The trade logs are no longer updated because; a) it was a duplication of effort (the brokerage does it automatically), b) it was exceedingly tedious, c) figures from the brokerage were subject to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.

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 $14,743.49 per year with yield on cost of 8.792227% on total cost of $167,687.78.
    • Unrealized change now shows $4,052.99 or 2.36% since purchase, leaving total value of the portfolio at $171,740.77.
      • This is after my recent ‘harvest’ of gains in the accounts, and monthly withdrawals of dividend income.

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;

First, sharebuilder;


Next, Fidelity (sorry, no fancy graph and data current as of 8/31/16, please ignore “today’s gain/loss”);


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

  • October 8th 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 $952.00 (less $5 for 5 ‘extra’ trades) on 10/4/16.
    • Automatic investments now usually take place on the 1st Tuesday of every month, but might change…
    • FFC, FLC, GOF, GUT, MAV, MHI, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, & PMX are being DRIPped in Fidelity accounts because they reinvest at a discount!
      • Capital One (sharebuilder) doesn’t offer this DTC dividend reinvestment discount plan.
    • 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.
    • On 10/3, I sold all GOF, GUT, HTD, PHK, RNP, & RQI in our Capital One sharebuilder account. This account will only hold tax-free CEFs & won’t DRIP.
    • On 10/3, I sold all ARIPRA, CLNYPRC, CMREPRC, CSI, RSOPRC, STK, & TOOPRB in our Fidelity accounts. I bought; CSQ, GOF, GUT, NRO, PHK, RFI, RNP, RQI, & UTF.
    • On 10/4, Capital One Investing (sharebuilder) Automatic Investment Plan invested in BBK, BFK, BKN, BTA, EVN, FMN, IQI, LEO, NAD, NVG, NZF, OIA, PMF, PML, PMM, PMO, & PMX
    • On 10/4, I sold a little EAD, and bought some; BGH, DFP, FHY, GOF, HHY, JPI, JPS, PHK, & PHT.

    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 (outdated). The latest info is on my google sheets.
