8.9% YTD through June, or;

17.8% annualized

The former.... or thought of another way, as if there is no additional income or change in value between the measurement date and December 31, 2017.

Congratulations

If I'm reading it correctly, looks as if today, the DJIA is up about 25% from a year ago on June 17.

Currently my allocation is 68/28/4 (stock, bonds, cash). The S&P is up 8.98% YTD, my allocation is finally catching up, now at 7.26% or 80.9% of the S&P growth (wo div). I like to consider the allocation is very balanced moderate growth. Earlier in the year I was more 60/40 ish, so my stock growth is rapidly skewing the allocation. I am considering a re-balance today, and will likely drop the foreign bond allocation as well. Any thoughts or similar thoughts by others? Someone mentioned private money lending as an allocation, which would be similar to a bond strategy. Curious if the higher yield might follow more risk?

If I take the difference in our net worth between 12/31/16 and 6/20/17, minus value for our residences, and divide that by the 12/31 net worth I get 3.776% gain. Of course we have fed and maintained ourselves during the last six months, so I'm ok with that.

7.4% YTD
16% over year.

The International returns have kicked in, after dragging on the portfolio the last two-three years. (Stocks are currently 58% of the portfolio, to put in perspective.)

Ended the 1st half of the year with 6.96% increase YTD. My winners are the international & chemical funds. On average, they are up in high teen area. Even the bond funds are doing ok at 2 - 4% increase. My short term trades returned about 7%, performing below the S&P 500.

Six months already? Time flies while one is goofing off.

My stash is up 7.90% YTD as of close of market on 6/30. Two days ago, it was 8.71%.

Not complaining, as VFINX (S&P surrogate) is up 9.26%, and I capture 85% of that gain while not being 85% in equity. Hope to hang on to that gain in the days ahead.

I have been rebalancing more often than normal into the rally to keep cash up giving upcoming wedding costs later this year.

Good info. Also, VTWNX Vg Target Retirement 2020 is ~55/45 and returned 7.01% YTD... so averaging VTTVX and VTWNX is 7.42% and a good 60/40 benchmark for me... and I was 7.44% so pretty close.

But now I notice that VSMGX seems to be a better/easier benchmark as it also uses a mix of Total Stock, Total International Stock, Total Bond Total International Bond that approximates my target AA.

7.46% on a 56/44 AA for the first half of 2017. I will be ecstatic if the second half is as good.

For 6 month check my portfolio is up 15.77% with a 70/30 stock/bond. If I figure this same gain for 12 month's not gaining anything more it would be 7.60%. I would be happy with 2 or 3% for the year. I never like to get greedy because I know the down side very well. Lol

I have been retired for 14 months and just did what my portfolio has gained for those 14 months. My gain is 12.30% and I'm ecstatic with those numbers. I also stay very humble like I said before I know that hard times are down the road.
