March 25th 2010 Tracking Portfolio

Another day, another year. As my readers know, I set up a tracking portfolio once a month comprised of the top 50 stocks greater than 100m and then track them for a year versus the Russell 3000. The stocks a year ago didn't do that great, up just 10% versus 15.4% for the Russell 3000. Here is a listing of the 50 stocks:

Grand Total 7.6% 5.4%
Closed 6.8% 3.5%
Open 12.0% 13.4%

Finally, I always like to use actual dollars in my analysis as percentages and averages can be misleading (for example +10% then down 10% is different than +25% and down 25%, but they both average 0%). So here is what you would have if you started with $100,000 spread over the first 12 months:

Total 123,132
Total New 115,562
Total Dividend 214,366
Total Russell 3K 114,773

So you'd have $123k now versus $114.7k from being in Russell 3000. I also have sub portfolios called "new" and "dividend". New only uses stocks new to the tracking portfolios in past year. Dividend uses stocks that yield over 2.4%. You can see that the dividend stocks have been the big winners.

Dividend Stocks In The New Portfolio

Stock Initial Price End Price Yield
UNTD 6.18 6.29 6.5%
USMO 14.61 14.8 13.7%
RTN 51.28 50.8 2.9%
PETS 15.1 15.49 3.1%
PDLI 5.63 5.53 11.5%
LO 93.73 94.74 4.9%
DLX 25.82 26.08 3.9%
CHKE 17.14 17.18 7.8%
HRB 16.47 16.56 3.6%

The only new stock is POZN.

I would like to revise my guess as to Joel Greenblatts "secret" in the next book. Choose stocks with a dividend greater than 2.4%.
