Year 2016 Performance and Portfolio Rebalancing

For the long-time followers of this blog, you would probably know that we are also managing our own personal investment portfolio in the Philippine stock market. We refer to that portfolio as "Filipino Investor Equity Fund" or simply FIEF. So here's an update on our recent trades and our performance since we started investing in the PSE since March 2010.


PERFORMANCE:

We've managed to perform relatively well for the year 2016 despite the index being down for the whole year, we're up +19.36% vs PCOMP's -2.46% as of 30-Nov-16. The performance was mainly driven by our exposure on RSA stocks, i.e. SMC, PCOR, PF in addition to some notable gains from STI and FOOD. We don't really memorize every single trade that made and lost money because we try to look and manage the portfolio as a whole rather than on an individual stock basis but those are the primary drivers on top of our head.

Since inception-wise we are also performing relatively well vs the PCOMP and S&P 500. FIEF's CAGR is +19.31% in the last 6.69 Years vs PCOMP's +11.99% and S&P 500's +9.94% in the same time period. 

We intend to continue our value investment philosophy moving forward.

Performance Summary:


*In computing the Portfolio performance, everytime we add additional capital to the portfolio the accounting treatment is as if the cash was added at the start of the fiscal year. We believe there's a more accurate way of computing the performance than this method but we're sticking to it because it is simple, it's conservative and it makes intuitive sense.

Top 25 Highest Dividend Yield in the Philippines for Nov 2016

"Top 25 Highest Dividend Yield in the Philippines" is a monthly publication by Filipino Investor to give investors in the PSE a sense on what are the highest dividend yielding stocks at current market prices.

This will be particularly useful to income investors a.k.a. those investors who like to buy companies that pay dividends.

We used Bloomberg's Dividend Indicated Yield in calculating the numbers defined as:

"The most recently announced gross dividend, annualized based on the Dividend Frequency (DV016, DVD_FREQ), then divided by the current market price. If the security is paying an interim/final dividend, then the indicated yield is calculated by adding the gross amount from the most recently announced interim and the most recently announced final, and dividing the sum by the current market price. Abnormal Dividends are not included in this yield calculation."

Formulas:
Dividend Yield = Dividend Per Share / Stock Price x 100%

Dividend Payout Ratio = Dividend Per Share / Earnings Per Share x 100%

We would like to remind the readers of this website to do due diligence specially on the more iliquid names.
