Portfolio One is our longest lived portfolio. It is 20 years old. The trustee contributed $20,000 and the beneficiary $10,000 for a total of $30,000. The current value is $98,262 for a gain of $68,262 which is 227% or 9.7% / year when adjusted for the timing of cash flows. Go here for a summary or to the link on the right.
There was a stock split since the last update – Nvidia (NVDA) split 4/1. When that occurs you need to adjust the purchase price accordingly. We purchased 5 new stocks for the account so it is almost entirely invested (less than 2% is in cash). The portfolio is generally doing well, with large positions in Taiwan Semiconductor (TSM) and Paypal (PYPL) along with 23 other stocks. There are a couple stocks on watch, notably Alibaba (BABA) tied to the Chinese crackdown and Rocket Mortgage (RKT) which was briefly part of the Meme stock frenzy.
While many recent stock purchases don’t pay much in the way of dividends, over the 20 years of this portfolio, almost $10,000 of the total return is in dividends. This is a big reason why I create these offline tracking sheets, so that you can see the impact of dividends on the portfolio.
