#HYHRD: The #Plan 8/12 $LEO $MAIN $MAV $MFM $MHI $MITT $MORL $NAD $NEWT $NHF $NRO

Hi,

meatwbnh

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

So, I decided I should probably post about my #PLAN for the foreseeable future. A lot of people ask about my investment theses, so that seems to justify this post. Let’s see if I can even begin to support that statement.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ACSF, AGD, ARCC, ARR, AWP, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, BXMX, CEFL, CLM, CRF, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, DIAX, EAD, ECC, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FPF, GAIN, GLAD, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAIN, MAV, MFM, MHI, MITT, MORL, NAD, NEWT, NHF, NRO, NRZ, NVG, NZF, OAKS, OIA, ORC, OXLC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMX, PSEC, PSF, QQQX, RA, REML, RFI, RNP, RQI, SAR, SCM, SPXX, STK, TICC, TLI, TPZ, TWO, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (88 total issues held; 16 common stocks, 4 ETNs, and 68 CEFs, of which 17 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ARCC, BDCL, BXMX, DIAX, MITT, NEWT, NRZ, OXLC, QQQX, SAR, SPXX, STK, TICC, & TWO pay quarterly.

I will continue to screen using the method(s) outlined in my monthly Watch List post.

I will continue to withdraw funds as needed to augment our income as outlined in my monthly income phase of The #Plan #UPDATE.

I will continue to invest monthly as outlined in my #ShareBuilder #Updates.

I will continue to “harvest” capital gains by selling holdings at new 52 week highs with “limit orders” in minimum 100 share lots so I can specify AON (All or None). I may also sell for other reasons (i.e.; because I can, I felt like it, I needed the money, etc.).

I’ll try to outline a bit of the rest of the #Plan each week with updates on my thinking, such as it is…

#HYHRD: Ex-div & pay dates 8/12 $NRZ $NVG $NZF $OAKS $OIA $ORC $OXLC $PDT $PFD $PFO $PHK

Hi,

These are the upcoming declared dividend pay dates and amount(s) expected from each stock (usually projected on the ex-dividend date, or after market close the prior trading day).

These amounts are a compilation from all of our accounts, so some is taxable, some is tax-deferred, but most is tax-free. If you check out my Expected dividend spreadsheets you can see how it all breaks down, or you could just read my posts and look at the screenshots (ooooh, pretty pictures!).

The table and chart of monthly dividends since inception as found on my Dividends Received page on my blog follows;

#HYHRD: portfolio #review 8/12 $PHT $PMF $PML $PMM $PMX $PSEC $PSF $QQQX $RA $REML $RFI

Hi,

47625_165048493536654_6589011_n

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, AGD, ARCC, ARR, AWP, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, BXMX, CEFL, CLM, CRF, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, DIAX, EAD, ECC, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FPF, GAIN, GLAD, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAIN, MAV, MFM, MHI, MITT, MORL, NAD, NEWT, NHF, NRO, NRZ, NVG, NZF, OAKS, OIA, ORC, OXLC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMX, PSEC, PSF, QQQX, RA, REML, RFI, RNP, RQI, SAR, SCM, SPXX, STK, TICC, TLI, TPZ, TWO, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (88 total issues held; 16 common stocks, 4 ETNs, and 68 CEFs, of which 17 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ARCC, BDCL, BXMX, DIAX, MITT, NEWT, NRZ, OXLC, QQQX, SAR, SPXX, STK, TICC, & TWO pay quarterly.

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.

#HYHRD: spreadsheets 8/12 $ACSF $AGD $ARCC $ARR $AWP $BDCL $BDJ $BFK $BGH $BKN $BTA

Hi,

3andme

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

I no longer use MS Excel spreadsheets to record dividends. I am now using Google spreadsheets for my holdings and to record dividends. They are as up-to-date as I can manage, but will lag by a day or so due to delays in the cost basis reporting from the brokerages. The share prices should update close to real-time, however, with a possible slight delay (~20 minutes) from Google.

On my Google spreadsheets, you can find portfolio holdings, dividend amounts, dates (dividend pay dates, record dates, declaration dates, dividend amounts, ex-dividend dates, etc.). I have moved the cash and withdrawal amounts to the Google spreadsheets as well as the dividends spreadsheet. I will still post screenshots on the Dividends Received page.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ACSF, AGD, ARCC, ARR, AWP, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, BXMX, CEFL, CLM, CRF, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, DIAX, EAD, ECC, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FPF, GAIN, GLAD, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAIN, MAV, MFM, MHI, MITT, MORL, NAD, NEWT, NHF, NRO, NRZ, NVG, NZF, OAKS, OIA, ORC, OXLC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMX, PSEC, PSF, QQQX, RA, REML, RFI, RNP, RQI, SAR, SCM, SPXX, STK, TICC, TLI, TPZ, TWO, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (88 total issues held; 16 common stocks, 4 ETNs, and 68 CEFs, of which 17 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ARCC, BDCL, BXMX, DIAX, MITT, NEWT, NRZ, OXLC, QQQX, SAR, SPXX, STK, TICC, & TWO pay quarterly.

This series of blog posts is issued `weekly, but since the majority of our holdings pay dividends near the end and/or beginning of the month it may not always warrant a publishing blitz. There are usually 4 posts in the series when posted. The sharebuilder updates are issued monthly as is the monthly withdrawal update. I think you should try to catch all 4, plus the sharebuilder updates and/or the monthly withdrawal update if you’re so inclined. Occasionally I’ll throw something else up for ridicule or admiration like my recent final posting about “Profiting from Preferreds”, so feel free to be entertained!

Of course, if something major happens I might be tempted to throw something up about that. Or not. Like the recession, depression, World War III, or whatever…

From now on I will make monthly sharebuilder investments (Usually on the 1st Tuesday) using all 12 of the 12 monthly ‘free’ trade credits for each “investment day”, with additional trades (if any) under the AIP plan costing $1 each. I will be investing proportionately. It’s all shown on the ind-PandA, Roth-P, & Roth-A account tab.

On August 6th, I decided to make sharebuilder investments in our joint taxable account on a weekly basis instead of once a month.

I have partially moved our Roth accounts from Fidelity to Capital One Investing (ShareBuilder), initiating the first part of the transfer around March 1st. The second and final partial transfer was completed for my wife’s Roth. The 3rd and final partial transfer of my Roth completes the transfers for both Roth IRA accounts. When that first transfer became effective for the 2nd investment day in March, I began to make weekly sharebuilder investments (usually every Tuesday) using 4 of 12 monthly ‘free’ trade credits, with additional trades (if any) under the SIP plan costing $1 each. The next month was a “full” investing monthly, with 4 investment days, so I initially invested equally based on adding 3 ETNs to the account (BDCL, CEFL, MORL). I have now switched to the investment schedule located on each account tab on my Google spreadsheets, and I plan to invest in the top 12 holdings in Annualized Return in each account. It’s all shown on the individual account tabs on my Google spreadsheet. Or, maybe I’ll do something different. Who knows?

Anyway, let’s continue with a look at the dates;

HYHRD: Google Sheets workaround for stock price of $QQQX #kludge

Hi,

3andme

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

Google Finance’s last price for QQQX is from Oct. 31 – Close, which simply will not do. I found another way to get the stock price, but it’s a bit of a kludge, so I hope you don’t mind that. It’s just the best I can do short of entering the price manually (yeah, like that’s gonna happen!). – Navigate Safely, Pat

First, here’s a screenshot from Google Finance, which is where Google Sheets gets the stock price (duh!);

googlefinance

You’ll notice the price is not current, but oddly enough the chart is. They’re both on the same page, for crying out loud!

I have entered a note, which you can see when you hover your mouse pointer over the cell containing QQQX that’s explains the kludge is in use;

note

I have used the “Report a Problem” link at the bottom of the quote page on Google Finance, but I’ve also reported that their dial gauge doesn’t display properly and haven’t heard a word in over a month. So, I don’t expect they’ll ever correct the situation. They’re probably too busy with writing a politically incorrect office memo or counting profits from their sale of stock to ever answer or respond to that error.

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!

#HYHRD: Plan within a plan $AGD $AWP $BXMX $DIAX $IVH $KIO $OXLC $QQQX $RA $REML $SPXX

Hi,

12525157_1026367650738063_2933739440530586978_o

The above has changed as of today.

There are 4 Tuesdays remaining in August, and those are Capital One Investing’s “Investment Days” for their AIP (Automated Investment Plan). I have already invested in my then current holdings on August 1st, the 1st Tuesday (August has 5 Tuesdays).

I have extra cash sitting in our Roth IRA accounts, and wanted to put it to use…

Hey, things change…

…and could change again, up until 5PM on the day orders are created (usually Mondays). I will try to update this post by 4:30PM on that day if I decide to change anything. I usually don’t make late changes, but you never know…

I decided to make these ‘sharebuilder’ investments weekly, usually on Tuesday.

#HYHRD Total Performance, a look back over the past 200 days

Hi,

wealthfront

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

Recently, I posted some charts on StockTwits of the Total Performance over the past 200 days of 10 of our holdings at a time (because 10 is the limit for this chart on stockcharts.com). One chart is only 168 days because of the short trading history of RA, and dramatically changes the picture for the rest of the holdings on that chart. I removed RA and then show the remaining 9 in that group over a 200 day period. Wow, what a difference!

Here are the screenshots;

#HYHRD: TDM Software 8/5 $CXE $DFP $DHF $DHY $EAD $ECC $EVN $FFC $FHY $FIF $FLC $FPF $GAIN $GLAD

Hi,

England_Pictures_216

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

NOTE: This post might be graphic-intensive, so might take a while to load on a mobile device.

I decided to start using the TDM software again. I downloaded it from http://www.thomasdividendmanager.com/index.php/download-tdm and I was good to go!

It’s different from my spreadsheet, and a lot less work for me. The TDM software gets the dividend dates, ex-dividend dates, etc. It then calculates the expected dividends, and is often closer to actual dividends received than my spreadsheet! So, I just post the screenshots here each week to let you all have a look at what the software is doing for me as far as recording stock buying & selling, dividends, etc.

You will recall in my previous posts about this software, that I input every transaction in our Fidelity accounts, but not in our Capital One accounts. The reason for that is because I’m basically lazy. You see, most of the Fidelity accounts were recently reset to hold mostly DTC discount eligible holdings, and since the rest of our holdings were transferred to Capital One Investing and I had held them and had been adding to them for a while I decided to just take the aggregate holdings (share counts and costs) instead of recording each transaction. This resulted in the Fidelity accounts being almost immediately up to date as far as dividends earned but not yet received, but the Capital One Investing accounts would lag until the ex-dividend had passed before the TDM program would begin to automatically calculate the dividend amount(s) earned.

I also set up the Fidelity accounts (and the joint taxable account held at Capital One Investing) to DRIP the dividends since there was a possibility I would be getting a discount (only at Fidelity). I love discounts! I love dividends! Discounted dividend stock sent me into a slight euphoria!

So, first I looked at the accounts;

tdm

This window pops up if you have more than one account and click the account name in the lower left corner. You can also set the location for the program data here.

For this post, I am going to look at the portfolio view(s) or each account, and we’ll take it from the top, so first on the list is Fidelity Roth-A and then we’ll continue down the list one by one.

Ready? Here we go…
