7/1/2015 MFI Formula Tranche

Another Tranche Finishes

I closed my MFI Formula tranche last night.  I will start a new tranche either tomorrow or Tuesday (I am traveling tomorrow, so may not have time).

The tranche was my first formula approach to "lose" and it was pretty bad.  Below is a list of the four tranches that have now closed.

10/1/2014 Stocks  Start   Current   Dividend   Pct Gain   R3K Gain 
 BAH  $23.52 $26.21 $0.50 13.5% -0.6%
 BKE  $45.55 $36.97 $3.68 -10.8% -0.6%
 CA  $27.87 $27.30 $1.00 1.5% -0.6%
 GME  $41.70 $41.21 $1.41 2.2% -0.6%
 NUS  $44.56 $41.28 $1.40 -4.2% -0.6%
 Totals  0.5% -0.6%
 12/31/14 Stocks   Start   Current   Dividend   Pct Gain   R3K Gain 
 CA  $30.83 $29.26 $1.00 -1.8% -0.3%
 CSCO  $28.36 $27.70 $0.82 0.6% -0.3%
 RGR  $34.81 $60.08 $1.10 75.7% -0.3%
 GME  $34.21 $28.71 $1.44 -11.9% -0.3%
 IQNT  $19.87 $17.78 $0.60 -7.5% -0.3%
 Totals  11.0% -0.3%
3/31/2015  Start   Current   Dividend   Pct Gain   R3K Gain 
 HRB  $31.99 $26.33 $0.80 -15.2% -1.1%
 GME  $37.69 $32.12 $1.45 -10.9% -1.1%
 KING  $15.85 $18.00 $0.00 13.6% -1.1%
 NSU  $3.43 $3.24 $0.16 -0.8% -1.1%
 PPC  $22.65 $25.40 $0.00 12.1% -1.1%
 Totals  -0.2% -1.1%
7/1/2015  Start   Current   Dividend   Pct Gain   R3K Gain 
 BKE  $46.45 $25.51 $1.96 -40.9% -0.3%
 CA  $29.34 $31.53 $1.01 10.9% -0.3%
 MSFT  $44.42 $49.29 $1.39 14.1% -0.3%
 QCOM  $62.95 $53.45 $1.97 -12.0% -0.3%
 VIAB  $64.75 $40.81 $1.60 -34.5% -0.3%
 Totals  -12.5% -0.3%


BKE and VIAB were just too bad to overcome.  This approach continues to run virtually flat with just being in a benchmark.  I will stick with it for a bit longer, but am actively considering alternative approaches.

The permanent portfolio is up 0ver 12% real YTD. REAL that is after inflation. Amazon has The permanent Portfolio written by Craig Rowland. I gave it to all my kids and grandchildren.
45 year old record that equals 100% in stock. In the 1970's I was luckly and was 100% in gold.

Would be interested to see how a duration of dividend filter worked (versus a high yield +2.8%). Something like 10+ years of dividends or 5+ years of raises.
