Anyone know of any studies into the yield of the PP over time? I'd imagine it tends to be above the yield of the stock market.

Good idea, using the yield of the PRPFX as a proxy:

0.58% seems low, but the metals aren't yielding anything, so maybe that explains it.

PRPFX really isn't really PP -- if it's currently getting 0.58%, that's a LOT lower than current PP, which is closer to 3%

If using Vanguard Mutual Funds as a simple implementation:

Cash (Treasury MM - VUSXX): 5.28%
LTT (VLGSX) : 4.52%
SP 500 (VFIAX): 1.26%
Gold (IAU): 0%

Add and divide by four: 2.77% (vs 0.58%) if I did the maths correctly

(assuming exactly at 4 x 25)
