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, HYG, 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? (50 total issues held; 6 common stocks, 3 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 (and, I’ve made some changes so check out my previous posts and be sure to have a look at the spreadsheet!). 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 balances from the 2019 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!
