At the beginning of the year, I had to go to choosing investments that weren't individual stocks. I decided to invest in an all-Vanguard portfolio. Here are the results after the 1st quarter.

Stock/ Ticker%chgAnnualized yield
BLV total6.32%7.99%
EDV total3.97%9.18%
MGV total3.33%19.53%
VBR1.04%22.09%
VCLT total2.95%2.76%
VCR3.57%22.96%
VDC6.28%43.16%
VDE4.12%126.71%
VIG total5.96%40.61%
VIS1.30%31.93%
VNQ total2.42%15.13%
VNQI2.98%18.85%
VOX5.92%40.33%
VPU1.37%18.63%
VPU11.30%58.34%
VTV6.80%47.29%
VWO total6.66%33.71%
VWOB2.50%23.91%
VXF3.73%24.04%
VXUS total1.42%20.16%
VYM total2.39%10.82%
VFH1.40%176.53%
VBK1.68%236.92%
Total5.27%23.46%

I have sold some of my positions in EDV, VFH, BLV. This has added 1-2% to my total. The percentage change and annualized gain also includes the dividends that have been reinvested. I have only included the % change and annualized gain as I want to keep the $$ amount invested private. I will update again at the end of the 2nd quarter.

Disclosure: I am long VBK, VPU.
