To see the yearly results you have to compare two portfolios. Make up 2 portfolios and save them. Then go to "tools" and then "compare portfolios". I put in 120 months and backtested. It gives you both graphs on the same screen for comparison. Then if you look at the tabs on the top, you will see "yearly returns"
Thanks for the tip. Never went that far into the program.
I posted a question to the author about the different results.

Utrecht, just from a psychological prospective, based on your obvious interest in investment (and impressive performance) I suggest staying the course.

Managing my portfolio provides both intellectually stimulation and somewhat a sense of accomplishment. Two things which were somewhat missing for me after retirement. When it gets boring or you find some other passion, than by all means moving it much simpler portfolio.

In 2012, (as a CSRS Employee) I cashed out 2 of my mutual funds and transferred it into the VCP and did a VCP to ROTH IRA Rollover (150K), which has gone into the Vanguard Wellesley account. Safe and Stable. Being CSRS, I consider my CSRS income as basically a "Bond Fund" (my take home pay is 43% more per month than my take home pay while working). So, I decided to take 60K out of my ING (now Capitol One 360) and move it to the Wellington Fund. I think pretty soon, I'll move the taxable Wellington fund into the Windsor type funds and move the Wellesley Roth IRA into a Wellington ROTH IRA.

I like the Wellington and Wellesley funds for different reasons, but I've been retired since age 57, am currently 59, and the majority of my funds are in the TSP C Fund (S & P 500)

Wellesley or Wellington, IMO, is a kind of "Set it and forget it" type fund. I like that. If it gets 8% instead of 9% ? Well, if 1% makes that much difference, so be it. Not for me. I just watch from the sidelines. For now.
