My Real Life LongShort Portfolio, Current Leverage, & ALL holdings last week & today (in comments)

March 09, 2010 – Comments (21) | RELATED TICKERS: AMZN , FAX , GMCR

NOTE THIS IS AS OF LAST WEEK.  WEEKEND & TODAY'S UPDATE IS IN COMMENT SECTION OF THIS BLOG POST.

Since my last performance update post (November 10, 2009), the market has been up roughly 3%.

Fortunately my portfolio kept pace (finally) to also ~3%.

After ending 2009 lagging bad, January was a quite a big up month for my portfolio to start 2010 & February generally flat. My 1yr performance comparison had shown to beat the S&P 500 until the 2nd half of February in which the S&P 500 started showing 1yr performance above 45-50% (due to low levels prior year).

Quick reminder, I indicate my top 3 ratable long & top 3 short holdings with 'top pick' designation on CAPS.

Here's my performance per TradeKing

5 Day      0.79%
15 Day     0.66%
1 Month     2.39%
3 Month     6.60%
6 Month     -0.10%
1 Year     44.40%
As of:     03/04/10

So 1yr 3/4/09-3/4/2010 performance of my portfolio was +44.4% gain vs S&P 500 +57.5% gain.
Man, if I would have went all in on S&P 500 Index last year & had the guts to hold til today...wow. IF... =)

After April 2009, my portfolio has been for the most part been market neutral/market short.  So now I will be also comparing to recently best performing long-short style funds (from list: DIAMX, PBP, COAGX, CVSIX, BPLEX, BWV):
BPLEX +117%
BWV +43%
DIAMX +39%

Looks like I beat 2 of the 3, but that BPLEX has shown monster performance!

Reminder to self & others: the markets run the risk of moving higher for years despite what fundamentals may indicate.

Going forward, I will try to stay within the 0-25%net short range just to manage (juggle) my risk.

 

All my holdings as of today, 3/4/10:

*Note, certain ETFs & PUT options were adjusted accordingly denoted with a * below (ie a long position on a short ETF was multiplied by -1, a position on a leveraged ETF was multiplied accordingly- ie 1% on a 3x leveraged ETF was changed to a ~3% holding, PUT options nominal value was multipled by -3)
