As I mentioned in yesterday’s “monthly recap” post, I rolled a sizeable 401(k) into the Rescue My IRA portfolio during the month of December. I established a couple of new positions with those funds (and maintained a “legacy” position of 800 shares with ACM), so calculating anything in much more detail doesn’t seem to accomplish much.
