My VWIAX/VWENX mix performed as expected with a loss of 1.73%. The only model portfolio that came close was the Paul Merriman model which took a loss of 1.76% with more foreign exposure. I see the three fund VG portfolio's did not fare as well.

My VG portfolio with these two funds is about 50/50 and provides about 50% exposure to LCV equities, and provides a moderate standard deviation that I can sleep on. I know there are others out there with this same allocation. I feel fortunate to have moved to this allocation prior to my retirement this year.

Brexit Paper Loss

Up less than a tenth of 1% Friday.. Up about 6% on year, and eagerly waiting big dividend dumps at end of next 2 months to goose my returns. This is why I own illiquid utility preferreds... It keeps the idiots, hot money chasers, mutual fund companies, and panic sellers out. Plus you cant meaningfully use margin on them. On Friday of my dozen or so issues less than 2,000 shares traded. One went up $15 on a 4 share trade, ha! I dont even count those as money and mostly mark to market around par (most are past call and considerably above par) except for the few liquid ones I own that actually trade daily.

Portfolio down about 3% Friday. I have a strong tilt toward international which bore the brunt of the losses. On the other hand, I was up considerably in the days leading up to the vote, so I pretty much just gave those gains back. Net net not a big deal - at least so far.

Any conclusion is not going to be rapid. It's going to be a drawn out process.

I was down about 1.7% for the day. Three high-grade bond funds, which make up about 25% of my portfolio, were up slightly. The stock funds and the lower-grade bond fund were down to varying degrees.


What matters to me will be the monthly dividends the bond funds generate next week and the quarterly dividends my stock funds generate a week later in early July.

Thanks for asking. I was curious also and did gather balances after close 6/23/16 prior to drop. We dropped only .39% off a prior balance of 1,566,443 to 1,560,227 on Friday 6/24. Domestic Stock = 25%, Cash = 42%, Bonds = 12%, Fixed Return (5%) = 21%.

My total portfolio is down 1.2%, stocks only portfolio is down 2.2%. I plan on hanging on for the ride and adding to my international position sometime in the near future.

Down about 5% for the day. $72k. Almost 100% stock portfolio.

Future plans include more doing nothing, collecting dividends, and relying on my cash reserves if this puppy keeps dropping. Around 2019 I might start getting concerned. Fortunately I was too busy Friday to pay much attention to the market, but I knew it was going to be butt ugly since I happened to catch the Brexit news Thursday night pretty late (and got to enjoy watching the GBP/USD exchange rate drop a penny every time I hit "refresh").

The upside is I get $32k in a rollover from my ESOP sometime in the next few months, so a downturn isn't completely unwelcome. The $32k amount is already locked in based on 12/31/2015 valuations.

Yep (well, I assume so, I didn't bother to look )

I just want to scream every time I hear some TV/radio spot where they say "the average 401K is down $X,XXX!" I guess the headline " The average 401K is higher than it was 6 weeks ago" just wouldn't do?

Yep. Just gotta scream the most intense stuff they can think of. Forget about perspective.

What was yours?
I am planning to ride this out as usual. Will rebalance next month if AA is off by 5%.

Oddly mine was more like 1.5% on a similar top-level AA.

Always, maybe. But, in some cases (Japan), it might take longer than my daughters lifetime.

The complacency of this board worries me.

I did not calculate it but would estimate 2 1/3%. I think this correction is less significant because it is less directly connected to economic data than what "might" happen. More of a pure emotional thing.
