The New Tranche Is In

August 15th 201 MFI Tranche

Whew!  I expect my readers do not realize it, but the day I retire one tranche and add a new one actually takes a fair amount of effort on my part.  Besides the actual buying of stocks (which was a bit difficult today due to my being in transit, coming back home from Cape Cod); my worksheets and my Yahoo portfolios all have to be amended.

I came very, very, very close to going with NUS instead of BRCD. Time will tell which will be the better stock.  I also had to think a bit about how to track the AGX as it was a rollover of a stock.

So here are my four tranches:

11/15/13 Stocks Start Current Dividend Pct Gain R3K Gain
AVG $17.22 $17.71 $0.00 2.8% 9.8%
ATVI $17.71 $23.36 $0.20 33.0% 9.8%
GA $9.04 $11.90 $0.23 34.2% 9.8%
RPXC $17.04 $14.96 $0.00 -12.2% 9.8%
SYNA $48.01 $80.35 $0.00 67.4% 9.8%
Totals 25.1% 9.8%
2/1/14 Stocks Start Current Dividend Pct Gain R3K Gain
ATVI $17.13 $23.36 $0.20 37.5% 9.9%
KLAC $61.47 $74.07 $1.40 22.8% 9.9%
RPXC $16.22 $14.96 $0.00 -7.8% 9.9%
SNDK $69.55 $94.03 $0.53 36.0% 9.9%
WNR $39.11 $45.58 $0.78 18.5% 9.9%
Totals 21.4% 9.9%
5/6/2014 Start Current Dividend Pct Gain R3K Gain
AVG $19.57 $17.71 $0.00 -9.5% 4.5%
CA $29.54 $28.36 $0.25 -3.2% 4.5%
CSCO $22.79 $24.43 $0.19 8.1% 4.5%
NSR $25.82 $28.66 $0.00 11.0% 4.5%
RCII $28.78 $24.80 $0.23 -13.0% 4.5%
Totals -1.3% 4.5%
8/15/2014 Start Current Dividend Pct Gain R3K Gain
CSCO $24.40 $24.43 $0.00 0.1% 0.0%
AGX $36.71 $37.05 $0.00 0.9% 0.0%
ITRN $21.32 $21.47 $0.00 0.7% 0.0%
BRCD $9.34 $9.33 $0.00 -0.1% 0.0%
CBI $58.25 $58.32 $0.00 0.1% 0.0%
Totals 0.4% 0.0%

As discussed I did increase my $ per stock in the August tranche by about 25%.  I had added dollars before, but much smaller amounts. So cross your fingers that the add was good timing.

Then here is my new summary table:

Category/Tranche August November February May Total
Initial Investment      25,000       25,000     25,000      25,000    100,000
Current Tranche 0.4% 25.1% 21.4% -1.3% 11.0%
Previous Tranche 41.4% 43.7% 78.3% 33.0% 55.2%
Tranche -2 14.1%              -              -               -   3.5%
MFI Overall Gain 61.9% 79.8% 116.4% 31.3% 72.3%
Current Balance      40,472       44,939     54,103      32,813    172,327
R3K Current Tranche 19.4% 50.1% 9.9% 4.5% 21.0%
R3K Overall Gain 45.9% 50.1% 33.1% 24.2% 37.0%
R3K Balance      36,469       37,524     33,264      29,722    136,980
Annualized IRR 27.2% 39.8% 65.3% 23.7% 40.0%
I was unsure what to do with a 3rd year of tranches in there.  I thought about just two categories: Current Tranche and Prior Tranches.  But I decided to list all tranches in the table: Current Tranche, Previous Tranche and Tranche -2 (wasn't sure of good name for that one).

Finally, here is how my MFI is doing against the benchmark by month:

Date Differential Value
12/1/2012 -2.20%       99,765
1/1/2013 -1.78%      102,798
2/1/2013 -2.26%      102,594
3/1/2013 -2.23%      102,881
4/1/2013 -0.43%      106,804
5/1/2013 2.00%      110,423
6/1/2013 4.75%      115,831
7/1/2013 4.29%      114,888
8/1/2013 6.91%      124,799
9/1/2013 10.46%      124,536
10/1/2013 19.67%      138,655
11/1/2013 19.75%      143,514
12/1/2013 23.70%      150,105
1/1/2014 26.63%      157,138
2/1/2014 24.70%      150,619
3/1/2014 25.66%      158,116
4/1/2014 30.38%      162,991
5/1/2014 29.65%      162,428
6/1/2014 32.14%      167,001
7/1/2014 40.63%      177,971
8/1/2014 31.73%      167,054
Current 35.35%      172,327
You can see I have regained a lot of lost ground in August (after a terrible July).

Looks like you made the better pick by a landslide, I chose NUS :(
