May finally snapped the 3 month losing streak that I’ve had, the first in a very long time. For the month, I finished up a positive $31,864.58 or 3.15%, the second best month of the year behind January. It feels good to be on in the positive for the month. Net worth sits at $1,044,846.34. I’ve been floating around the 1 to 1.1 million for the year. However, for the year, I am still down -$10,682.25 or -1.01% for the year.
Compared to the S&500, which saw a 3.50% return through the end of May, I have a lot of ground to still make up. For the month of May, the S&P500 saw a 1.90% return. So, again I was able to chip away at my underperformance on the year. For the month of May, one of my stocks in particular saw a major outperformance and accounted for about $15,000 of the gains. WWE has been on fire and it has become a top 5 holding in my portfolio (all sitting in my Roth IRA!). The second half of the month was particularly good as I saw several days of outperformance on both positive and negative days for the markets.
For any new readers, my net worth is super simple. I have absolutely no debt (including house, cars, student loans). Basically, I am liquid AF. For my net worth, I only count financial assets, so I don’t include material possessions like house, cars, shit in the house (I like to keep it simple). So here goes the charting of my net worth since 1999…
While I am working to get to the $2 Million marker within the next 7 years, I should also note the slow and steady increases in dividend income. For 2018,I will just past the $25,000 marker for dividends. This allows me to never really touch my portfolio.
I have exactly 2 days left for being under contract to work. I do have plans to eventually leave the work force again, but for the time being it stills serves as a distraction for me to keep my mind active and off of other things. I just wish the work was mentally stimulating. It’s just nice to know I will be able to leave without having to repay the signing bonus.
