I also keep a spreadsheet with returns for all my holdings. The last column is a weighted average of return that reflects my AA. From there I use STDEV for each holding and my portfolio. What's even more valuable to me is tracking correlation of all my holdings and my portfolio overall (discussed a few months ago, available thru search).
