Q4 2012 Portfolio Performance

After a much needed hiatus to focus on buying a new home and a new job, I'm back.  I haven't actively managed the portfolio for over a year and half, selling most of my positions at the end of 2011 to buy that new home.  First order of business is to see how things wrapped up at the end of 2012.

I have 3 remaining positions:
  • XLF - Financial Select SPDR ETF
  • XHB - SPDR S&P HomeBuilders ETF
  • Cash

The Home Builders ETF (XHB) has done extremely well since I picked it up in the depths of economic despair of 2008 holding a total gain of 52.9%.  Did you think home builders would come back?  Come back it did.  This one ETF alone held up the portolio for all of 2012.  Not a bad way to come back in and lead off 2013.

Time to finish up this damn coffee analysis of Starbucks (SBUX), Tim Hortons (THI), and Dunkin' Brands (DNKN).
