Please excuse any random periods of seeming inactivity. I’m moving assets, and very busy with things at home. Thank you for your understanding.
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; ABBV, AGD, ARCC, ARR, AWP, BDCL, BF.A, BF.B, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, BXMX, CEFL, CLM, CRF, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, DIAX, DNP, EAD, ECC, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FPF, GAIN, GLAD, GLOP, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAIN, MAV, MITT, MMD, MORL, NAD, NEWT, NHF, NRO, NRZ, NVG, NYMTN, NZF, OIA, OXLC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMX, PSF, QQQX, RA, REML, RFI, RNP, SAR, SPXX, STK, TLI, TPZ, UTF, & VGR. Quite a list, eh? (85 total issues held; 12 common stocks, 4 ETNs, 1 preferred share, and 68 CEFs, of which 16 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ABBV, ARCC, BDCL, BF.A, BF.B, BXMX, DIAX, GLOP, MITT, NEWT, NRZ, NYMTN, QQQX, SAR, SPXX, STK, & VGR pay quarterly.
“Smithers, release the hounds!”
- To date (from the Google sheets, for all holdings):
- Expected Dividends now shows $14,839.67 per year with yield on cost of 9.76% with total cost of $152,119.53.
- Unrealized change now shows -$5,382.78 or -3.67% since purchase, leaving total value of the portfolio at $146,736.75.
- This is after my ongoing ‘harvesting’ of gains in the accounts, monthly withdrawals of dividend income, and includes cash.
- I am now also calculating unrealized change with total dividends received, and it shows $127,452.96 or 45.59% since portfolio inception on 4/4/12.
- I usually buy when opportunity presents itself. I sell in 100+ share lots using limit sell orders and specifying AON to reap gains.
- If I have any 100+ share limit sell orders specifying AON and the holding hits a target (like a new 52-week high), the order executes.
- Cash proceeds from the sale(s) of holdings and/or dividend payments are left in cash to 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 screenshots look like;
First, 1 year sharebuilder joint account;
Now, YTD sharebuilder Pat’s Roth account (until March of 2018 when I will be able to show 1 year performance charts);
Now, YTD sharebuilder Arlene’s Roth account (until March of 2018 when I will be able to show 1 year performance charts);
Now, the latest Fidelity performance (sorry, no fancy graph and data only current as of 12/31/17);
Next, Fidelity 2017 performance (again, sorry, no fancy graph). Monthly data as of 12/31/17;

Here’s a look at our balances from the 2017 Balances sheet (updated ~monthly and usually a week or so late.);
This is an old 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 (the screenshot below is outdated, but the latest info on my google sheets). There’s also 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…
PLEASE TAKE NOTE AND REMEMBER THIS!
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!
