The total return of 12.2% for the quarter is with all dividents reinvested. For those of you who don't know, ETP provides you a 5% discount on reinvested dividents (as long as your brokerage participates like Fidelity does).
Operating ratio is the ratio of cost of goods sold plus operating expenses to net sales. It is generally expressed in percentage.
Operating ratio measures the cost of operations per dollar of sales. This is closely related to the ratio of operating profit to net sales.
The two basic components for the calculation of operating ratio are operating cost (cost of goods sold plus operating expenses) and net sales. Operating expenses normally include (a) administrative and office expenses and (b) selling and distribution expenses. Financial charges such as interest, provision for taxation etc. are generally excluded from operating expenses
YTD through 4/30 = 15.6% with all dividents dripped. Only one stock is down YTD (SCCO).
Current yield on my portfolio is 3.7% (assumes SCCO divident at a low of .20 cents each quarter).
SCCO (since puchase though this has been a 2 bagger plus for me)
My worst performer since purchase is still MOS (down 21%). This is the only stock that I am currently losing money on since purchase. CSX used to be my other dog but with the run it's had YTD of 25% I now have a 10% gain.
I also bought into NRF in late March at 9.29.
With todays action, it appears like I may need to put my buy orders in to add to my BAC and SCCO positions. These would be long term holds and not for a flip. I thought 36 would be the buy price on SCCO, but it has broken through this area.
