madsinger monthly report

Post by madsinger »

Here is a big fat collection of portfolios, with their June 2010 returns, 2010 YTD return, and annualized returns since 1999, 2001, 2005 and 2007 (11 years 6 months, 9 years 6 months, 5 years 6 months, 3 years 6 months). I broke them into four categories, roughly corresponding to 100/0, 80/20, 60/40, 40/60 stock/bond portfolios, sorted by Total Return since 2001. The 3 fund is 50/30/20 Total Stock/Total Int'l/Total Bond. The s&d is 10 each of VFINX, VIVAX, NAESX, VISVX, VGSIX, 25 VGTSX, 5 VINEX, 20 VBMFX. The coffeehouse is a 60/40 described at The Coffeehouse Investor. The Newsletter portfolios are from a newsletter following Vanguard funds. William Bernstein's "Sheltered Sam" is an all stock portfolio which is 20% VFINX, 25% VIVAX, 5% NAESX, 15% VISVX, 10% VGSIX, 3% VGPMX, 5% each VEURX, VPACX, VEIEX, and 7% VTRIX. The madsinger portfolio is my real-world portfolio, roughly 64/5/3/28 stock/REIT/PM/bond.

Not much to say that isn't said in the chart. Bonds are doing pretty well, stocks are not.

I'll update the chart when the newsletter updates their website.

Okay...I should give this a little more thought (it's only once a month, after all).

Total Bond fund and REIT fund are up 5.33% and 5.61%, respectively, YTD. So, portfolios with more bonds, or a dollop of REITs tend to be doing a little better (s&d and coffeehouse --- and heck, madsinger!) Wellesley continues to hold up well.

For those of you keeping track, the Newsletter Growth Index has eked past the Newsletter Growth in my sorting (as of 2001) by having a cumulative 9-1/2 year return of 31.60% to 31.55% (but they round off to the same number at 2.93% annualized).

Thank you to those who post here, and for those of you who have sent messages! I appreciate your comments.

-Brad.

Hi Brad,
Would it be possible for you to post CAGR back to 1989?
Thank you.

Hello AlohaBill,

I'm afraid this is not possible for these portfolios, because many of the funds in these portfolios did not exist back then! In fact, the reason I go back to 1999, is that some of the portfolios use the Vanguard Small Value Index fund which was only started during the year 1998. 1999 is the first year that I have complete data for all of the funds.
