    Over 1yr, but more importantly over 5-10yrs, and after tax
    How has your portfolio done.
    I mean your full portfolio, including all your investments, shares that you traded / bet with. Cash holdings included.

    Mine has done 23.3% compared to S&P all ordinaries accumulation index of 30.28, and S&P 200 accumulation index of 28.6% in the year to june30
    International = platinum brands and platinum asia
    To me its quite poor. The portfolio is not particularly risk managed, tax inefficient
    I know Im to heavy in navra - and its very tax inefficient too
    I have to take into account that navra is 30-40% cash

    Im coming around to using index funds, more LIC's, and using DFA
    dimensional funds
    DFA Australia Limited: Home
    DFA Australia Limited: Home
    Performance Data
    Ive been tracking dimensional small and value funds- and I dont think there are any funds beating it long term over 5-10yrs (with no internal gearing)
    The academic research behind it is phenomenal, and based on nobel prize winners fama and french.

    my portfolio percentages are attached

    I hope others can post charts of their portfolio percentages and how they have performed

    Ill post back when Ive restructured, take a bite for CGT, and move all into a discretionary trust for asset protection.
    Im searching for DFA approved advisors atm to help me construct a portfolio

    looks like you don't have much diversification at all.. with everything in Australian shares.

    I have most things in Australian shares too, suits my comfort level and understanding of the market and the companies that trade in it.

    Grew my share portfolio size 126% in just under 6 months, won't complain about that at all :D

    hi i have been buying and selling shares in drips and drabs since 1998, i have an excel spreadsheet which i record everything in, my CAGR as of close of market today 27/6/2008 is -5.48% this excludes distributions and dividends

    also this return is the weighed average return of the portfolio as i have more $$$ invested in some stocks than others.
