Here it comes Red Dow 2
« on: December 02, 2017, 06:10:23 PM »
Looks like Google is killing off the portfolio trackers in their finance section.  I still tracked Mr Percentage's picks from this thread:

https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/investor-alley/here-it-comes-red-dow/

His last pick was OHI on April 18, 2016.  He never would be specific enough to audit his picks as he claimed he sold some but would never say when.  I just used 1 stock on the date of his pick.  Could never get a straight answer of a percent of the actual total that each stock purchase made up.   

https://forum.mrmoneymustache.com/investor-alley/here-it-comes-red-dow/msg1055370/#msg1055370

"As an update my new position is OHI. It was a large sum for me. Up to now my direct stock return for my other positions is 12.99% for a year and some positions have only been held 6 months.

so there you have it
Omega Healthcare REIT. Its name is fitting because it will be the last large purchase for me this year.
It's yield on cost is 6.54%

go ahead and short away."

Down only 24.5% since then.  Lesson is to stick to indexing.

RIP Mr. Percentage portfolio.

Thanks for keeping tracking of that stock pick he made. It's truly a lesson in indexing over active stock picking.

  I used and liked Google's portfolio tracker, it's gone now.
I switched to Yahoo. I liked google's better.
Anyone find one that they like?

btw, can someone walk me through the steps to enter a cost basis in the basic view on Yahoo finance. I have tried almost everything to be able to put prices and can't figure it out.

I just binge read that entire Red Dow thread and was so disappointed it ended with Mr % getting banned.  That was fun reading!

I wonder if he still posts.  Off to find out as I was oddly rooting for him (not the market crash part but that he'd start to consider other options/start doing some actual research before forming an investment ethos).
