User’s Guide – Portfolio Management – Diagnostic/Compare

This Diagnostic/Compare enables the analysis of a single portfolio as well as the comparison of two separate portfolios.  

First, select an initial portfolio to evaluate from the drop down menu as shown.  

In this same window, you can see the number of ETF’s, Stock’s and their Power Gauge Ratings, or other assets held in the Portfolio as well as the option to print the portfolio.  

Once you select the Portfolio you wish to view, a list of the Portfolio’s attributes opens.  There are three separate views for this screen; Default, Attributes, and Performance.  Each view contains the Portfolio Makeup, each holding in the Portfolio, the Symbol, Name, and ETF Group/Stock Industry.  

The Default View also shows Expense Ratio, 3 Month Return, 1 Year Return, Assets Under Management/Market Cap Average Daily Volume, Beta, and Yield.  

Switching to the Attributes View, the table will display Expense Ratio, Assets Under Management/Market Cap, Average Daily Volume, Beta, and Yield. 

The Performance View shows 1 Week Return, 1 Month Return, 3 Month Return, 6 Month Return, 1 Year Return, YTD Return, 3 Year Return, and 5 Year Return.  

The next section in Diagnostic/Compare is the Price Return Scenario.  You may select an initial portfolio value and a time frame at the top of the chart.  A chart will be displayed showing the total value of the Portfolio over the period of time selected.  It also shows the dividends earned.  

Below the Chart there is a table showing the Current Value, the Highest Valuation during the period, the Lowest Valuation during the period and a summary of the Dividends received.  By hovering your mouse along the chart you can see the actual value of the portfolio on any given trading day.  

The Print Menu (below) enables the selection of the Sections to be included in the report as well as adding Logo, Contact Information, and Disclaimer, all of which are set up under My Account.   You can print to a local or network printer, or print to a .pdf for electronic transmission of the report. 

Unweighted Performance shows a chart with the performance of each individual equity or ETF over the period of time selected in the Price Return Scenario.  It also summarizes the return of each individual equity or ETF in a table.  

The Portfolio Forward Potential Analysis allows evaluation of the possible future performance of the Portfolios selected.  The first section looks at the Portfolio Ratings and the Portfolio Focus to project possible future performance.  

Possible future performance can be estimated using both the Ratings of the holdings within the Portfolio as well as the focus of the Portfolio, more specifically the allocation of holdings among various ETF Groups or Stock Industries. 

In addition to the data on Rating and ETF Groups or Stock Industries, the Relative Strength of each holding within a portfolio is viewable in this section.  

Portfolio Holdings are segmented and displayed on the basis of Fixed Income and Non-Fixed Income.  The X Axis reflects the rating, and the Y Axis reflects the Relative Strength against either SPY for Non-Fixed Income and AGG for Fixed Income.  

You may view this data for a specific time period using the slider along the top of the table as shown above, or you can click the Play icon and the dates will be scrolled through automatically.  In viewing the data, stocks or ETF’s that appear in the top right quadrant are strongest and those appearing in the bottom left quadrant are the weakest.  

The next section includes a drilldown by weight and rating for the holdings in the Portfolio.  It also includes a table ranking the SPDR Sectors by Rating.  For this table you may select the relevant timeframe using the slider or click the ‘play’ button and the table will automatically scroll through the timeframes in the Platform. 

The final table shows the Geographic Exposure of the Portfolio.   You may zoom in one the data in this display using the + and – buttons.
