Special Situations Real Money Portfolio August 2010

It has been a few months since I’ve reported on my Special Situations Real Money Portfolio.  The Special Situations Real Money Portfolio is actually my son’s Coverdell Education Savings Account that I set up on October 19, 2004 as an experiment.   I wanted to see if an individual investor could earn stable returns from special situations and arbitrage opportunities similar to the opportunities Benjamin Graham called “stock workouts.”  The experiment has been a huge success and was the motivation for me to create my premium service, Fat Pitch Financials Contributors Corner.  Even though it has been a while since I’ve publicly discussed the Special Situations Real Money Portfolio, I’ve been busy investing in new opportunities all summer and the results have been phenomenal.

When I last reported on the Special Situations Real Money Portfolio in April, the portfolio had a balance of $34,683.37. By then end of May 2010, the portfolio’s value increased to $35,026.44.  After the market closed on August 31, 2010, the portfolio has grown to $37,421.88.  That’s a gain of 7.9% since the end of April.

So far this year, the Special Situations Real Money Portfolio has gained 20.96%.  That is particularly impressive given that the S&P 500 index returned -4.6% over the same period.

Since inception on October 19, 2004, the Special Situations Real Money Portfolio has produced a total return of 211.85% (as of August 31, 2010).  The average annualized rate of return for this portfolio continues to be an impressive 31.09%.  This is just slightly lower than what I reported at the end of April.

Of the current $37,421.88 in the portfolio, I only held $3,805.31 in cash at the end of August. Yesterday, I invested almost all of that remaining cash in a new liquidation opportunity that I recently shared with subscribers of Fat Pitch Financials Contributor’s Corner.
