Merck Performance Details

Yesterday, I reported that I sold my position in Merck (MRK) in the Fat Pitch Financials Portfolio.  I have some additional performance statistics to provide on this trade.

According to Marketocracy, I had a total return of 76.89% on the 5,000 shares of Merck purchased on October 4, 2004.   The appreciation in share price alone was 63.19%.  The year-to-date return on Merck price was 31.03%.

Here is a look of the cash flows associated with my Merck position in my portfolio:

Date Amount

10/1/2007

$1,900.00

11/6/2007

$279,780.00

IRR

21.2%

Each of those $1,900 payments came from the $0.38 quarterly dividends issued by Merck. I used Excel’s XIRR function to determine that my annualized rate of return on my Merck position was a solid 21.2%. I’m very happy with that return and look forward to finding another fat pitch opportunity to replace Merck in my portfolio.  Any ideas?
