TSP Talk Weekly Wrap Up

Rate this Entry

The C-fund has been the TSP fund to beat this year, and this week nobody could. The C-fund did not have the greatest single day return this week, the S-fund did on Monday, but the C-fund went five days without a loss. That did include a day with no return while the other TSP funds were in the negative. The five days accumulated to a return of 1.89% for the C-fund and all the TSP Talk AutoTracker members holding 100% C-fund through the week.

Here are the weekly, monthly, and annual TSP fund returns for the week ending May 10:

There were opportunities to outperform the C-fund for the week, but no member was able to pull it off. A couple examples would have been a move from 100% S-fund to 100% C-fund on Monday or Tuesday, or a move from 100% C-fund to 100% I-fund on Wednesday. Of course, these hypotheticals are only visible in foresight, and with everyone working with 2 IFTs a month, itís hard to see every possibility fulfilled.

The majority of IFTs used this week were to exit stock funds. There were 60 IFTs made among the TSP Talk community. Twenty-seven of those 60 were moves to 100% G-fund. Those donít include members who made partial moves to the G-fund. Fifteen of the 60 IFTs landed in 100% stock fund allocations. Those donít include partial allocations either.

For 2024, only six full-year TSP Talk AutoTracker members are outperforming the C-fund. Fifteen members were outperforming the C-fund on April 20th when stocks were reaching their April lows. But since then, stocks have bounced back and those in the G-fund have been left behind and kick below the 59 members who have held 100% C-fund all year.

Here are the six who currently outperform the C-fund for the year:

  1. Johnny: +14.51%
  2. Butters +10.61%
  3. gitkrunk +10.51%
  4. totallykool +10.38%
  5. Timberwoof +10.36%
  6. CrabClaw +10.29%
  7. C-fund +10.02%
