Our overall economic position is up 6% for the quarter (24% nnualized!)

You're actually doing better than you thought. You forgot to take into effect the power of compounding! :)

6% in a quarter annualized taking into effect compounding:

1.06^4 = 26% CAGR

All in jest though. Who knows what will happen next quarter?
