Howdy, Y’all!

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; ABR, AGD, ARCC, AWP, BFK, BGH, BSD, BST, BXMX, CSQ, DIAX, DNP, ECC, FLC, FTF, GAIN, GOF, HTD, IGN, IYLD, JLS, JQC, LDP, LGI, LOR, MAIN, MHD, NEWT, NRO, NVG, NZF, OIA, OXLC, PCI, PDI, PDT, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PSF, RFI, RNP, SACH, TPZ, UTF, UTG, & VPV. Quite a list, eh? (49 total issues held; 6 common stocks, 2 ETFs, and 41 CEFs, of which 9 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ABR, ARCC, BXMX, DIAX, IGN, NEWT, & SACH pay quarterly.

“Smithers, release the hounds!”

I’m often asked what our return is. To be honest, I answer that I often make withdrawals so I don’t really know (or track!) the return that closely, although my spreadsheet does make an attempt to do so. So, I checked with my broker and found they actually do track my returns at Fidelity and other brokers, both annually and cumulatively, so I will present those results to you here (with account numbers smudged out, of course).

Here’s a look at our Annual Performance from Fidelity (our broker);

Here’s a look at our Cumulative Performance from Fidelity (our broker);

Here’s a look at our balances from the 2019 balances sheet (updated ~monthly and usually a week or so late.);

Here’s a look at our balances from the 2018 balances sheet (updated ~monthly and usually a week or so late.);

This is a screenshot of a table at the bottom of my Port. sheet that shows; position size rank, % change since purchase rank, rank by yield, and rank by total return (the screenshot below is not current). There’s also a table on the Div.’s 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!

    Hi Pat,
    I hope you’re feeling well. I was just wondering what caused the spike in selling in April. You seemed to have rotated out of quite a few positions. Did you explain your reasoning in one of your earlier posts I may have missed?
    All the best,
    Higrm

      I didn’t fully explain. I was profit-taking, and I needed the money. Two separate reasons. Also, some positions weren’t profitable, so I cut them. I just cut some more. I had eye surgery, twice (detached retina). My wife wants to go visit grandkids for 3 weeks which involves a hotel stay and eating out a lot, so we need to plan for that. Also, I had a hospital stay Jan. 3rd to remove my gallbladder and the bill needs to be paid. I lost 70 pounds and my health went downhill a bit. I still can’t see too well. When it rains, it pours. Our nest egg got cracked. I’m trying to keep it from getting scrambled. How are things with you?

        Knock on wood, things are going well. I’m looking at retiring in the next year, so that gives me much to think about. Still have to determine if I’ve got the 40 years work experience which entitles one to early retirement at age 57 here in Luxembourg. As I’ve been employed in the USA, Germany, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and now Luxembourg, there will be a bit of document gathering required to get all the confirmations. Regarding your recent trades, I’m really bad with cutting stocks when they under-perform. I usually hold them till they die. I do trade some stocks, but the ones I buy because I think they are a good long term investment, I’ve tended to keep beyond the “Best before” date. Bad at admitting defeat. Or unrealistically optimistic. I hope you fully recover and enjoy your visit to your grandkids.
        Take care.
