Its interesting how this thread was very popular last year in a rising market. Now that the market is down/volatile, people aren't posting their annual gains/losses on this much!

Haha! Depending on which day I check, I'm either up or down YTD.

If I use Beardstown logic, I'm always up at least 10%!

Q1 2018 Update: +1.24% YTD through March 31.

Almost exactly on track for 5% annual, which is my 2018 target.

Portfolio this year is defensive, with limited use of leverage, overweight cash, diminutive equity exposure, conservative alternatives positions, hedges in place, and some late cycle plays (e.g. commodities).

That being said, 5% return is not bad for a 33% cash & equivalents portfolio!

Oh my. After checking today, my hand picked 10 fund actively managed portfolio is up 9.5% YTD. Only 1 of the 10 has a negative performance. I feel sad for all those that believe such market out-performance with all this diversification is not possible or, at best, pure luck. That's a lot of the more vocal ones here. I do feel a bit of guilt. :-( :-( :-( :shock: :shock: :shock: :confused :confused :confused

Congratulationss. But are you truly so perturbed that poster s to the Bogleheads investor forum tend to support the Boglehead investment philosophy over your contrary view?

That philosophy does not imply that it is impossible to reach financial independence by investing as you do, but it does provide reasons for preferring to make a different choice than you have.

We all have different asset allocations and investments. Also some are accumulating (buying) and some are drawing down (selling) so we all have different returns. (We also don’t all use the same metric to report our returns as has been discussed previously.) This thread is purely about sharing the percent one is up year to date and maybe info about how it’s invested.

It’s about sharing more than comparing. :sharebeer

Congrats on you nice returns!

New investor and new forum member here. Happy to say that my account is up 12.1% YTD despite taking a beating yesterday.

My portfolio is a blend of carefully chosen market leader equities (50%) anchored by some index funds (25%) plus a few speculative plays and commodities.

Update: After Friday's trading session, I'm up 17%.

It's been a tame year for me which is just fine after the ridiculous growth of the past several. Here's a look:

Schwab Intelligent Portfolio - Taxable (73% Equity, 11% Bonds, 5% Commodities, 11% cash (!)): +0.26% YTD
Schwab Intelligent Portfolio - Roth (93% Equity, 7% Cash): +0.43% YTD
Thrift Savings Plan - Roth (L2050 - 82% Equity, 18% Bonds): +0.9% YTD

hmmm... my spreadsheet says that I am up YTD by 0.46% using =SUM(((1+XIRR(A3:A19,B3:B19,10%))^(((DATE(2018,5,31)-(DATE(2017,12,29)))/365))-1))

what is odd is that the amount of my total contributions YTD (no withdrawals) is greater than the difference between my current portfolio value and the starting value...

so... is that odd to anyone? did i make a mistake somewhere in setting up the calculation?

i benchmark my portfolio against a portfolio of 100% VT and mirror all contributions and transactions. my portfolio is currently underperforming VT by ~1%. at the end of Q1, i was outperforming the benchmark by ~0.4%. my actual portfolio tracks the VT benchmark pretty closely, despite having increased fees and expenses.

2018 YTD = 1.84%

My portfolio is 80% stocks, 20% bonds, with a little cash left for dip buying. Most of my spare cash was used on the dip on 4/2. I didn't know it until I got home, but 6 or 7 of my buy limit orders were triggered that day.

Edit: BTW, I don't really use PER's. My return calculations just use the final closing prices minus any contributions. I also don't consider cash as part of my portfolio, as sometimes it mingles with my emergency funds, depending on when ESPP rolls around.

My active account is up 12.91% as of Friday according to personal capital. Had a really good January, and then doubled my original investment in UVXY when the VIX spiked. Since then my success has been trending down, but I made around 3% back Friday which helped the numbers a lot.

I'm not sure if your formulas are right. I just starting using Morningstar's free (with the option to buy X-Ray) Portfolio tracker about a month ago, and its calculations are nearly the same as my spreadsheet. Over the course of a year, I'll see if they start to diverge by a substantial amount.

It's pretty cool that you can update the Morningstar portfolio to add dividends and newly bought shares.

Spectacular! Love to see those who are not scared of going after this degree of success/out-performance. Just make sure you are comfortably diversified to stomach a longer downturn.

2. Asset allocation ~45% equities, 10% CRE, remainder in FI.

I'm in retirement mode, as reflected in conservative allocation. Living on SS + RMD's as well drawing some income from int. and div. in a taxable investment account.
