Yep, the July 2011 - June 2012 return on the $200 billion in CalPERS.

Page 2, 2nd Paragraph
"The 2011-12 fiscal year was challenging. Volatility
and continued uncertainty in global markets resulted in
a weak but positive net rate of return of 0.1 percent for the total fund..."

Oh to think back on the knashing of teeth over the draconian reduction of expected return from 7.75% to 7.5%...

FLU you should contact calpers and show them how to run a portfolio. I would imagine in that same timeframe you did a bit better.

Why would they need to hire me?

Didn't you guys see the unpublished financial statement that is the one they really use???

They did really well, and beat the S&P 500...

You forgot to include the unlisted Mutual Fund they invested in...Ticker symbol MMPWA...

I think the S&P was up like 10%, just imagine if it had been a bad year LOL.
Not to worry, just cut more services, increase taxes I am sure we make this whole and not have any inflation.
7.5 % from here to eternity and beyond !!!

I am sure they have great management I am sure it was the best team gov planning could put together.

The S&P 500 "idiot" fund tracked closer to 16% last year. Heck, my kid's 529 plan did 19.7% after all the ridiculous fees and that was as passive at it got.

Actually over the same period I think the S&P did a little more than 2%

Keep in mind it's July 1 to June 30 they track. Not calendar year

Reinforces some statiscal studies that basically showing the stock market gain or loss for the year being a matter of being invested on on a handful of key days
