#HYHRD portfolio closed trades analysis $BKCC $CMO $STUDY

Since I started this High Yield High Return Dividend Portfolio, and started tracking everything publicly here on the blog, I’ve closed 2 trades that I can use to illustrate how the portfolio has performed for these trades.

On my blog, under Dividends Received, you can see actual and expected dividends received since inception, and each symbol also has it’s own page illustrating the dividends received.

Also on my blog, under Trade Logs, you can see net gains/losses for each symbol (each symbol has it’s own page illustrating the gains/losses).

Let’s examine $BKCC first;

On September 14th, BKCC hit a new 1 year high of $10.60

On September 17th, BKCC went ex-dividend

On September 17th, BKCC was sold and resulted in a gain of $525.93

On October 3rd, BKCC paid dividends totaling $468.35

So, it’s fairly easy to see that BKCC was and still could be a profitable position, bringing in a total of $994.28. If you want to dig deeper, my trading logs spreadsheet is also available on my blog, and I post buys/sells whenever there are any to report. The breakdown of the stock sales in these posts is in much greater detail:

From my post of 9/17;

sharebuilder Roth IRA;
101.3544 shares of BKCC was sold for a total gain of $44.77 (4.48%) in 13 days), plus the dividend.

Fidelity IRA;
500 shares of BKCC was sold in 3 lots (230 shares held 12 days for $71.01 (3.08%) plus the dividend, 200 shares held 11 days for $66.17 (3.30%), 70 shares held 10 days for $13.96 (1.98%)

The optionsXpress account activity breaks down like this;

regular brokerage;
100 shares of BKCC was sold for a total gain of $43.07 (4.29%) including pending $26.00 dividend in 11 days

Roth IRA;
100 shares of BKCC was sold in 2 lots (50 shares held 11 days for $26.07 (5.19%) including the pending $26.00 dividend, 50 shares held 5 days for $1.05 (0.21%)

IRA;
1000 shares of BKCC was sold for a total gain of $571.83 (5.70%) including pending $260.00 dividend in 12 days

Dividends were included in the optionsXpress accounts reporting for BKCC, but not for sharebuilder or fidelity accounts. I have since discontinued reporting gains/losses with dividends, and prefer to keep them separate.

Now, let’s examine $CMO;

On September 14th, CMO hit a 1 year high of $14.59

On September 26th, CMO went ex-dividend

On October 8th, CMO was sold and resulted in a loss of -$231.92

On October 15th, CMO hit a 9 month low of $11.95

On October 19th, CMO paid dividends totaling $42.30

So, it’s fairly easy to see that CMO was and still is not a profitable position, accounting for losses totaling -$189.62.

From my post of October 8th;

sharebuilder Roth IRA;
Sold 17.48744 shares of CMO held 34 days for a loss of $35.01 (-14.00%)

The optionsXpress account activity breaks down like this;

IRA;
Sold 200 shares of CMO in 2 lots; 100 shares held 41 days for a loss of $151.96 (-10.72%), 100 shares held 6 days for a loss of $44.95 (-3.41%)

So, what’s the net result?
Longest hold time = 41 days
Shortest hold time = 5 days
Net dividends received = $510.65
Net capital gains = $294.01
Net gains = $804.66 (includes gains/losses from sale of stock and dividends)

CMO was removed from the watch list, whereas BKCC was not, at least not yet.

BKCC has a chance in the near future to pass my initial screening, whereas CMO currently has absolutely no chance of passing.

I’ll be making some changes to the trade logs spreadsheet soon that will hopefully make some of this stuff more readily apparent.

HTH!
