4.48% on 40/60 equity/FI portfolio. 40% of portfolio is in 3% CDs which drags down the return right now bu will look a lot better when interest rates go up again.

. . . 40% of portfolio is in 3% CDs . . .

Actually . . . the average BH portfolio should be ITB or in the black ytd. And in reference to our shipmate Carolinaman's post, your 40/60 portfolio is doing fine, and that 3% in CDs is a good one. Good luck with your investments.

Thanks for reading.

I tracked quarterly but am transferring to your spreadsheet longinvest. Quite the undertaking to backtrack and grab monthly data for 4+ years. Once I'm up-to-date it'll be a useful spreadsheet to reference. Cheers :sharebeer

63% stock/10% bond/27% cash

YTD 5.6%

Heavy in cash due to CD's for house down payment. That number has been rolled up into my calculations for so long that it's too much trouble right now to figure without.

Up 14%.

Main fund is 70% stock / 30% bonds. Big boost to that YTD was the riskier part of the portfolio which was up quite a bit past that.

Stocks 65%
Bonds 35%

YTD. 6.1%

Just in Vanguard.
My retirement funds at TIAA-CREF are heavily conservative and YTD I'm at 3%. Already retired but will rebalance as soon as the dust settles.

I've tinkered slightly this year with overall risk characteristics, so I'm not being obtuse when I say I was roughly 68% stocks and 32% bonds. Am up 9.4% for the year.

REITs, EM, Long Treasuries all seem to be making a big contribution this year. Any one year or YTD isn't a big deal for me, but I do get very interested in how segments of my portfolio react in different market conditions, so I've been tracking ytd return on a weekly basis (I know, not recommended - but frankly it gives me a sense of satisfaction that the plan is in place and working, regardless of what the actual return number is.)

I've been doing a lot of thinking about asset allocation over the past year or so (hence the tinkering... I got the structure I wanted to start the year, but am still learning, and modified a few minor things back in March, and again just today.)
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

8.6%
55/35/10 (stock/bond/reit)

All mutual funds. Sliced and diced.

Re-balanced once--reduced reit; increased bond.

Tinkered with slightly to adjust some bond funds, to transfer some funds to funds with lower expenses, and to get AA in funds in different accounts aligned more closely according to the needs of the beneficiary of that account.

15.1% ROI

87.9% Domestic
12.1% Intl

97% Stock
3% Cash

This is why I'm not a huge proponent of international stocks (and neither is John Bogle). It's just not needed to do well.

At 30% bonds, portfolio YTD is +7.22%

Time weighted return or money weighted return?

Money-weighted = 9.4% (12.8% pre-tax)
Time-weighted = 7.15%

100% individual equities buy and hold

Both methods are doing well when comparing to the index:

- Buying the index at the same time I bought individual equities would result in a higher money-weighted return than time-weighted return indicating timing success

- IRR and time-weighted return is higher for portfolio than index indicating selection success

I'm comfortable buying on market dips and on equities I feel good about. It's fun and I hope I will continue to beat the index

Up 4.8% YTD overall.

Up ~10% YTD, ~17% YOY in my fun money roth account. Wasn't sure what to expect in my first full year of trading, but I've been pleasantly surprised with the outcome :sharebeer. It's about 8% of my portfolio now.

Up 11.57% with a 77% equity 23% fixed income portfolio.

Totally acceptable! :happy

What is weird is that our portfolio keeps on rebalancing itself. I keep looking to rebalance, but I haven't had to, except on February 11th. :D (Glad I did that.)

Up 11.9% for the year, in a 85% US equity, 15% TIAA-Trad portfolio, with a growth tilt (bad) and a few timing moves (good).

10.1% real, I suppose.

May the odds be ever in your favor. :beer

Yearly investment return for Roth accounts is 10.1%. Taxable portfolio is up 10%, but is not an investment return as there are additions and subtractions from various income streams and expenses. Current AA is 75/25 but will probably be lower in 2017 by reinvesting unspent dividends into bond funds. I am now into my third year of retirement.
