Another great week ends for BullDude’s portfolios, where the 2 best portfolios of last week were reconfirmed. The “Mid / Large-Cap” portfolio grew by + 3.23%, while the “IPOs” portfolio grew by + 8.63% compared to + 2.27% in the S&P 500 index. The worst portfolio of the week was “Small-Cap” which despite the + 2.79% increase was exceeded by the + 3.93% of the Russell 2000 index.

Observing the performance of portfolios since the start of the test phase (30 August 2020), the best is “IPOs”, which grew by 24% in just under 3 months, outperforming the S&P 500 index by over 20%, maintaining a lower risk despite the fact that the companies making up the portfolio are volatile.

The second best portfolio is “Mid / Large-Cap” up + 13% in the same period and, although this portfolio is also clearly outperforming the S&P 500 index, it maintains a level of risk that is about half of the S&P 500 ( Max Drawdown Portfolio -4.95% vs Max Drawdown S&P 500 -9.62%).

Below are the details of all portfolios.

BullDude’s Portfolios

Weekly Summary

Below for each of the 6 BullDude’s Portfolios you will find the “Current Holdings” screen which contains the positions currently open in the portfolio, indicating for each the size in dollars (and the weight as a percentage of the total portfolio) and the profit / loss (%) since it was opened. Furthermore, the percentage not invested (liquidity) is indicated.

In addition, there is another screen containing the following 4 types of information:

Weekly Performance

learn more

In this section you will find the weekly performance of the portfolio and the index used as a benchmark. In addition, the “Alpha” metric has been added which is calculated as the difference between the performance of the portfolio and that of the benchmark and therefore represents how much the portfolio has performed better / worse than the benchmark. A positive reading indicates that the portfolio outperformed the benchmark.

All-Time Performance

learn more

In this section you will find the same data as the previous section but the reference period is not the week just ended but starting from the beginning of the test phase. In this section, the “Alpha” parameter is fundamental because it shows whether the portfolio has been able to outperform the benchmark since the test began.

All-Time Risk – Max Drawdown

learn more

This section contains one of the main metrics for measuring the risk of a portfolio, the Max Drawdown. This metric is shown for both the portfolio and the benchmark and represents the maximum loss achieved starting from a maximum point to a minimum point. In addition, the “Alpha” parameter is shown which indicates how much the portfolio has risked relative to the benchmark and a positive value indicates that the portfolio has less risk.

Chart comparison of the portfolio / benchmark and Risk / Reward ratio

learn more

In this section you will find the daily chart of the portfolio and the relative benchmark from the start of the test phase and a box that gives you information on the risk / return ratio of the portfolio. In particular, if the “Alpha” parameters of the 2 sections described above “All-Time Performance” and “All-Time Risk – Max Drawdown” are positive, they indicate that the portfolio is performing better than the benchmark but risking less, ie the optimal situation, and then the indications “Higher Return and Lower Risk” will be shown.

*all-time performance refers to the start of the test phase (31 August 2020). Only the “Tech Stars” portfolio started the testing phase about 1 month later (28 September 2020).
*profit and loss data refer to all open and closed positions
