Monday was a holiday so, I am publishing with comments, my core portfolio and my “fun” portfolio holdings and the activity which took place on Tuesday.
CORE PORTFOLIO (tax-advantaged)
Following Paul Samuelson’s advice that investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow, yesterday, Tuesday, 02/18/2019, as usual, I did nothing with this portfolio. (in April 2014, Paul Samuelson became the first American to win the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences.)
50% (five years’ worth of my usual annual income) of this portfolio is in a US Money Market Fund (TDB166).
A Money Market Fund is a near-money security, that is, a non-cash asset which does not fluctuate in value and can be quickly converted into cash. TDB166 is currently yielding 2.27% annually, the highest in a long time. A year or so ago, it paid in less than 0.5%.You need to login to view the rest of the content. Please Login. Not a Member?
