That's pretty good considering the total market return was 1.80% through 10/31/05.

My investment return through 10/31 was 4.34%.

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

My return was 8.31% until my company stock tumbled. YTD is now 4.8% -- not bad. Lesson learned -- could have sold the company stocks but postponed the sale because of reluctance to pay capital gain tax.

My YTD is 12.62%. That's after John Hancock's ridicuously high expense ratios too...

If you are in the energy or commodities industries, or similar cyclical industries, you have to take some profits off the table when the good times roll. I sold a good chunk of my employer's stock this year (oil company) and would like to do more if energy stocks take another run in early 2006. *In my view, they have nowhere to go but down later in 2006.

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

5.2% before taxes, although there's gonna be a big slug of that this year after Tweedy's runup.

So most of us are outperforming Cramer despite his data networks, his 18-hour days, his driver, and his fawning Business Week profile? Hmmm....

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

Just the thought of trying to collect all this information and calculate the weighted average after disallowing the amounts that were new contributions.... makes me want to go back to bed.

But I know it was way more than 4%.

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

I can't even begin to get an aggregate, I have funds returning anywhere from 1.6% to 5.7%, I'd have to say the average is around 3%. EmigrantDirect is paying 4%. :P

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

He-he, he-he-he!* My 4.8% YTD return dusts Cramer's notwithstanding the fact that I've had about 30% of the portfolio sitting in tax-exempt money market funds for most of the year.* *

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

needless to say my real estate kicked Cramer's butt (+15%). Looks like he might have been better-off in REITs.

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

Hmmm

I have no idea - not sure I really care - just hold my balanced index and will settle with the IRS on divs/interest in taxible portion when the time comes.

De Gaul and and the Norwegian widow and all that rot.

Heh heh heh

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

Cramer's returns are probably even lower once you consider the guy's transaction costs. Not too tough to beat the guy using nothing more than a buy-n-hold approach.

Re: Cramer's YTD Retrun

Your portfolio beat mine again Ben.* 8% compared to your 10%.* If this keeps up, I may have to switch.*

I've got it written down, and am still studying it. Thanks for sharing your insights.

9.7%. And I don't even know what I am doing. (I will qualify this by saying I have done quite badly the last two months.)
