Position = security the portfolio owns
Purchased = date position acquired
Shares = number of shares the portfolio owns
Paid = price per share
Cost = what portfolio paid (including commission)
Now = price per share
Value = what it is worth as of the date of the statement (# shrs multiplied by price per share plus value of dividends)
Change = Change since last report (blank for positions new since last report)
Return on Investment = on a percentage basis, the performance of this security to date
Compounded Annual Growth Rate = annualized ROI for this position (to help compare apples to apples)

Notes: The benchmark for this portfolio is the Greenwich Alternative Investments Global Hedge Fund Index, which historically (1988 to 2006 inclusively) provides a CAGR of around 15.4%. For comparison’s sake, we also show the NASDAQ index, which over the same time frame has yielded a CAGR of around 11.0%. Note that for the portfolio, dividends are added back into the value of the pertinent security and not included in the “cash” total (this gives a more complete picture of the ROI for dividend-paying securities). Also, the “Cost” figures include a standard $8 commission and there is a 3% rate of interest on the listed cash balance.

Transactions: A couple of new purchases this month…we allocated $1800 per buy instead of $1000 as the size of the portfolio at the end of March was over $18,000. (Each new position is still targeted at 10% of the portfolio, but as the overall value is up, so is the amount of money allocated to the purchase.)

• 4 Apr – Bought 129 ELN for $13.90/shr
• 18 Apr – Bought 57 VRTX for $31.65/shr

Comments: There were no really big movers this month, and overall the portfolio gained 3%. Normally this would be a very good month, but it seems a tad pale compared to our 79% gain in March—especially as the NASDAQ gained 4% to edge us out for April. 😦 Overall, however, we are up 89% so far this year compared with 5% each for the NASDAQ and hedge fund index. We’ll take it.
