    • Your math is flawed. You averaged the yield percentage on each stock and the growth percentage to get the 8% and 20%. Suppose your portfolio had $1000 in a stock that paid 20% and $10,000 in a stock that paid 2%. The average would be 11%. Your total yield would be $400 on the $11,000 you had invested for the year or 3.6%, not 11%. Same reasoning goes for growth.

      Your math only works if you have exactly the same amount of dollars invested in each of the 10 stocks.
