Garden Growing and 2017 Q3 DIV. Report Q&A X 10.19.17


EOM Q&A: Garden Growing and 2017 Q3 DIV. Report Q&A X 10.19.17

I continue to receive requests for VIP Passes for the October and November seminars.  

Last Friday, I made an announcement the October and November seminar had been cancelled due to members preferring to receive this training online.

Next week, I begin a new segment on how to outperform the market-don’t miss it!
———————————————————————————————————–

Earlier this AM I sent an update that the DOW Futures were trading down over 100 pts.  Let’s monitor the last hour action to see if it is a one day event or the beginning of a larger downturn.     Calm heads prevail.    DOE
———————————————————————————————————–

Last week I stated, “If looking to enter at these levels, one needs at least a 5%+ run to break-even before a 5% pullback. 

On Monday, we studied the last 5% pullback (Nov. 2016) and what happened afterward. 

Today we study the second five candidates in the All-Star group to answer…

1.   Did these funds sell off with the market? 

2.   When the SPX recovered, did these candidates run?

Key Points…

1.  Yes, all five funds were hit with profit taking along with the SPX-red box

2.   When the SPX ran, all five funds had positive returns and all five outperformed the SPX showing the strength of these candidates

Something to consider…

If playing the short game (trading) these funds were excellent candidates

If playing the long game (Garden Growing) all five funds outperformed the SPX and continue to pay dividends-building additional shares.

What am I looking for?

If these funds had negative returns while the SPX rallied, then I would be cautious with these funds.  As you can see-this was not the case. 

Tomorrow we conclude and see if our CEF VIP Fund candidates under or outperformed the SPX….from 5% ago. 

This will give valuable insight for those planning to buy at these levels. 

Next week, I finalize this Garden Growing instruction series….a very timely series indeed!

Key Points…

1.  Yes, all five funds were hit with profit taking with the SPX-red box

2.   When the SPX ran, all five funds had a positive return and four outperformed the SPX

Something to consider…

If playing the short game (trading) these funds were excellent candidates

If playing the long game (Garden Growing) even though one fund underperformed the SPX, all five continued to pay dividends-building additional shares.

What am I looking for?

If these funds had negative returns while the SPX rallied, then I would be cautious with these funds.  As you can see-this was not the case. 

The rest of this series, we see if our All-Star and CEF VIP Fund candidates under or outperformed the SPX….from 5% ago. 

This will give valuable insight for those planning to buy at these levels.

Garden Growing and 2017 Q3 DIV. Report Q&A VIII 10.16.17


EOM Q&A: Garden Growing and 2017 Q3 DIV. Report Q&A VIII 10.16.17

Last week, I concluded the Q&A component of this series.   A special thanks to all that sent questions. 

This week, I analyze the market and current Garden Growing candidates to see if it is a prudent time to buy.

Many are ready to jump in and begin their Gardens, so let’s look at the last 5% pullback and what happened afterward. 



Key Points…

1.  The closest the SPX has to a 5% pullback was last November with a 4.9% pullback-see point A

2.  After the pullback, the SPX rallied 22.6%-see point B

Last week I stated, “If looking to enter at these levels, one needs at least a 5%+ run to break-even before a 5% pullback. 

I calculated when a 5% run would have started.  The answer, mid-August–point C.

Something to consider…

On October 20th, the current run will be the 5th longest run (since 1942) without a 5% pullback (477 days).

Tomorrow, I analyze a Heartbreak Hotel candidate and detail my 85% rule. 

The rest of the week, we see if our All-Star and CEF VIP Fund candidates under or out performed the SPX….from 5% ago.  See red vertical line above. 

This will give valuable insight for those planning to buy at these levels.

Garden Growing and 2017 Q3 DIV. Report Q&A VII 10.13.17


EOM Q&A: Garden Growing and 2017 Q3 DIV. Report Q&A VII 10.13.17

Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree
a long time ago.                                                                 
Warren Buffett     
——————————————————————————————————
Q&A Continued…

DOE–Let’s review the All-Star A&B funds in the Q4 2015 report.  Why?  This is the report before the last tradable pull-back in Q1 2016. 

Here is the complete list of nine candidates performance to date. 


Next, an audit to see if any All-Star B candidates eliminated their dividends.



One of the biggest problems with Garden Growing is the elimination of their dividend.  Reducing dividends may be prudent to be good stewards. 

Now, an audit to see if any dropped their dividends.

Candidate and current dividend yield….

PSP   13.64%  Quarterly
ETY     8.59%  Monthly
VNQ     4.06% Quarterly
DVYL    8.25%  Monthly
TLT       2.44%  Monthly

The results–two funds increased and three funds reduced yields.

Next, the current Q4 2015 All-Star B candidate performance  


Key Points…
1.  The previous performance leader PSP was the second leading performer
2.  TLT had a negative performance

3.  All other candidates had positive returns 

Remember…

1. Outperforming the market is a goal for the short game-trading.
2.  Positive returns and more important not eliminating dividends is the goal for the long-game Garden Growing.


Next week, I wrap up this series with the current candidate analysis.

Garden Growing and 2017 Q3 DIV. Report Q&A VI 10.12.17

DOE–Let’s review the All-Star A&B funds in the Q4 2015 report.  Why?  This is the report before the last tradable pull-back in Q1 2016. 

Here is the complete list of nine candidates performance to date. 


Next, an audit to see if any All-Star A candidates eliminated their dividends.

The Q4 2015 All-Star A list…



One of the biggest problems with Garden Growing is the elimination of their dividend.  Reducing dividends may be prudent to be good stewards. 

Candidates and current dividend yield and frequency

PMF  5.25% Monthly
PMX  5.62% Monthly
ICF    3.04%  Monthly
PEY   3.43%  Monthly
PGF   5.39%  Monthly

The results–all funds reduced their yield but did not eliminate
any dividends.  

Next, the current Q4 2015 All-Star A candidate performance  

Key Points…
1.  The previous performance leader PMF was the laggard and the only candidate with a negative return. 
2.  This point is so important to show how the previous number one performer does not always stay number one.

3.  All other candidates had positive returns.

Remember…

1. Outperforming the market is a goal for the short game-trading.
2.  Positive returns and more important–not eliminating dividends is the goal for the long-game–Garden Growing.

Tomorrow, I break-down the All-Star B group performance and results.

DOE:
  Here is the performance of the first nine All-Star A&B funds to see how they performed since the last tradable pull-back in Q1 2016.  This is the Acid Test to qualify the quality of these All-Star A&B candidates.  

Tomorrow, I break-down the performance results.
