    Continuing a pretend fund - a very simple one.   An occasional looking deeper.
    As of mid-June 2011.


    Lists of shared components, (all low % of each ETF, each is five percent of a holdings at the most within its entity)

    4: Nothing in all 4  (you'll notice that we count XPH as drugs seperately from the Powershares vehicles.)

    3:   11  Within PDF,PFM & PIV:     (  BF.B, CHRW, GWW, HRL, MCD, MO, ROP, SHW, SIAL, UTX, VFC )  Of these eleven, McDonalds is 4% by being 1% in PIV and three of PFM.
    Within PWC, PFM & PIV  (CVX - Chevron)  Works out as 5+4 percents from about 95k shares and 77k shares in PFM & PWC respectively, and a scrap only in PIV.

    2: pairs.  About seventy-five or so (Missed at least RL in a tally) Since there are
    413 equities here, that's 0.19 rough  (anti)correlation - more about that later.
    Stocks: PDP, PFM, SPHQ, PWC, XPH, BF.B, MCD, MO, UTX

    Author’s reply » At last, moved this here to S.A's Portfolios to track. As could be expected, lately the PWC part of the 4 major ETFs is bringing it down this fine August week. (And I did not find a way to show it "held" about 800 USD in cash ready to use. Strategically I'm dubious about putting this into the Dynamic ETF. It might make more sense to wait for the Value portion to be worst performer and add to it in the future.)

    Author’s reply » Actually, I put in a wrong 'Price paid'. All are in the green even through Aug 2011's rough patch.


    (Best is still PDP; DWA's Technical Leaders. WTG chart-systems!)

  • Looking at $RORO (SST ETF), but possibly it happens to duplicate what I do anyhow. Watchable!

  • Merger of QCOR and MNK raised my awareness of these pharmas. Pharma is hard! Staying away from these two anyhow.
