#HYHRD: portfolio #review 5/13 $PML $PMM $PMO $PMX $PSEC $PSF $RFI $RNP $RQI $SAR $SCM $TICC $TLI $TPZ $UTF



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

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; ACSF, ARCC, BBK, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, CEFL, CMU, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FMN, FPF, GAIN, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IQI, JPC, JPI, JPS, LDP, LEO, MAIN, MAV, MFM, MHI, MORL, NAD, NEWT, NHF, NMZ, NRO, NRZ, NVG, NZF, OAKS, OIA, ORC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMO, PMX, PSEC, PSF, RFI, RNP, RQI, SAR, SCM, TICC, TLI, TPZ, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (75 total issues held; 12 common stocks, 3 ETNs, and 60 CEFs, of which 23 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ARCC, BDCL, NEWT, NRZ, SAR, & TICC pay quarterly, but SAR doesn’t have a discernible regular quarterly pattern.

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 The trade logs are no longer updated because; a) it was a duplication of effort (the brokerage does it automatically), b) it was exceedingly tedious, c) figures from the brokerage were subject to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

“Smithers, release the hounds!”

  • To date (from the Google sheets, for all holdings):
    • Expected Dividends now shows $13,756.28 per year with yield on cost of 9.097780% on total cost of $151,204.79
    • Unrealized change now shows -$2,541.86 or -1.71% since purchase, leaving total value of the portfolio at $148,662.94.
      • This is after my ongoing ‘harvesting’ of gains in the accounts, monthly withdrawals of dividend income, and doesn’t include cash.
        • I buy every month; either weekly, semimonthly, or monthly. I sell in 100+ share lots using limit sell orders and specifying AON.
        • If I have any 100+ share limit sell orders specifying AON and the holding hits a target (like new 52-week high), the order executes.
        • Cash proceeds from the sale(s) of holdings and/or dividend payments are left to accumulate and either buy more or partially withdraw.

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

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

First, sharebuilder (joint account only until March of 2018 when I will add 1 year charts for both Roth IRAs);


Now, the latest Fidelity performance (sorry, no fancy graph and data only current as of 4/30/17);


Next, Fidelity 2016 performance (again, sorry, no fancy graph). Monthly data as of 12/31/16;


I took a look at our portfolio performance on AOL (SigFig) 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;


The above chart shows our performance had been affected by the move to Capital One Investing (Sharebuilder) from Fidelity, as a chunk of our portfolio had apparently gone missing in March during the transitions!

It’s also quite different from previous weeks. I think this is just an anomaly, and will be corrected soon, but it now shows our portfolio considerably underperforming where we were previously outperforming the markets. Also, the timeframe on that (under)performance is quite different! I will give it one more week to sync up correctly, as it is currently off by a significant amount…

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

  • May 13th 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 1st Tuesday as of 5/9/17, using all 12 ‘free’ trades for investment in each account.
      • Additional investments beyond the 12 “free” trades each month from the Advantage Plan cost $1.00 each.
      • This ’13th investment’ might be a good way to add an investment to our Roths or taxable account.
      • The Advantage Plan is $10/month for the joint taxable account, and $12/month for each Roth IRA account. (But, it is no longer available!)
    • FFC, FLC, GOF, GUT, MAV, MHI, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, & PMX are being DRIPped in Fidelity accounts because they may reinvest at a discount!
    • I have FFC, FLC, GOF, GUT, PFD, PFO, PHK, & PHT in my IRA & both Roth IRAs at Fidelity (no tax-free CEFs).
    • I have FFC, FLC, GOF, MAV, PFD, PFO, PHT, PMF, PML, & PMX in our joint account at Fidelity (some tax-free CEFs).
      • Capital One (sharebuilder) doesn’t offer this DTC dividend reinvestment discount plan.
  • This blog is now hosted on wordpress.com. My domain, hyhrd.com, will redirect here until it expires.

Here’s a look at our balances from the 2017 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, % change since purchase rank, rank by yield, and rank by total return (screenshot below is 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…



I’m not telling anyone to buy anything or giving anyone any advice, because that’s illegal. You see, I have no letters after my name, like RIA, CFA, etc. I SIMPLY DO NOT GIVE ADVICE. I only tell (and show!) what I do. You, like me, are all alone in this.

And remember, always do your own due diligence!
