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, 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, RA, RFI, RNP, RQI, UTF. Quite a list, eh? (59 total issues held; 0 common stocks, 1 Preferred issue, and 58 CEFs, of which 23 are tax-free muni 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 The trade logs are no longer updated because; a) it was a duplication of effort (the brokerage does it automatically), b) it was exceedingly tedious, c) figures from the brokerage were subject to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 updates on the 2016 Balances sheet.
“Smithers, release the hounds!”
- To date (from the Google sheets, for all holdings):
- Expected Dividends now shows $15,070.45 per year with yield on cost of 8.793896% on total cost of $171,374.03.
- Unrealized change now shows -$8,502.29 or -5.22% since purchase, leaving total value of the portfolio at $162,871.74.
- This is after my recent ‘harvest’ of gains in the accounts, and monthly withdrawals of dividend income.
- This is also after withdrawals, and the recent general market decline due mostly to election worries.
- I just want to restate the last part; This recent general market decline in CEFs is due to mostly irrational election worries. (IMHO!)
- This could be setting up to be a perfect buying opportunity with unreasonably depressed pricing, as long as NAV is retained or enhanced. 😉
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;
Next, Fidelity (sorry, no fancy graph and data only current as of 11/30/16);
I took a look at our portfolio performance on AOL because they track our aggregated actual holdings over 1 year (and I can compare it to the S&P 500, NASDAQ, and Dow Jones Industrial Average over the same time period!), and this is what I saw;
This data is further broken down on each separate sheet on our spreadsheets (but not shown here to save time and space).
- December 17th Update
- 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).
- Automatic investments now take place every Tuesday (as of 10/18/16 @ 3 investments/week), but might change…again…
- Additional investments beyond the 12 “free” trades each month from the Advantage Plan cost $1.00 each. The Advantage Plan is $10/month.
- FFC, FLC, GOF, GUT, MAV, MHI, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, & PMX are being DRIPped in Fidelity accounts because they reinvest at a discount!
- Capital One (sharebuilder) doesn’t offer this DTC dividend reinvestment discount plan.
- I have decided to no longer post or update the trade logs because;
- it was a duplication of effort (the brokerage does it automatically)
- it was exceedingly tedious
- figures from the brokerage were subject to change for a few days, making totals only approximate
- maybe it doesn’t need to be updated so frequently.
- brokerage(s) also continuously update cost basis for all our holdings.
Here’s a look at our balances from the 2016 Balances sheet (updated ~monthly, and usually a week or so late);
This is a screenshot of a table at the bottom of my holdings sheet that shows; position size rank (except CA$H), % change since purchase rank, rank by yield, and rank by total return (outdated). The latest info is on my google sheets. There’s a table on the Holdings tab, the Dividends tab, and the Dates tab. Each one is a bit unique and may offer some insight or value perhaps? Worth a look, it is. Scroll down, you must…
