Another month and another all-time high. Starting to sound like a broken record. My actual investment performance hasn’t been too hot the last few months, but I’ve still added $30,000 to my nestegg. I don’t anticipate the market to continue like it has, but I am currently 5 months ahead of the pace that I need to be to hit my $1M by age 40 goal Taxable ...

Not a great month for my investing performance, but another all-time new high for my retirement nestegg report. As I mentioned in my last report my wife is now working so not only do we have two incomes but she also has some sort of teacher retirement account that I will have to add to this report at some point. I believe we only get to see it’s ...

Well a pretty boring month for my nestegg but a pretty exciting month for me overall. My family and I took a 2 week out West to see some national parks and the eclipse and it was a pretty amazing experience. It makes you appreciate time alone with your family away from all of the other distractions of daily life and makes you truly appreciate what is ...

My retirement nestegg grew very modestly this month and my investments greatly under performed the market as a whole, especially my individual stocks. This will certainly happen as my portfolio has much more volatility than the market and so my downs are usually much worse than the market and my ups have historically been much greater than the market anyway. I feel like I have the right ...

Well for the first time since last October my retirement nestegg didn’t grow for a month and my investments especially my individual stocks under performed the market for a month. This has been an incredible run and in the last 18 months my retirement nestegg has grown over $300,000 dollars which is just mind boggling. Obviously with having my nestegg invested 100% in the stock market there ...

Well another 5 months and another $100,000 added to my retirement nestegg. To be honest I’m a little dumbfounded how fast my nestegg is growing and the best part is it is almost entirely by market gains with no effort on my part. In fact since I wrote our monthly report exactly one week ago my portfolio has added another $16,000. I’m not expecting it ...

Starting to sound like a broken record, but another month of all time nestegg highs and another month of investment performance that greatly exceeded the market. Obviously this can’t go on forever and eventually Tesla may slow down its meteoric climb for a bit, but in the meantime I guess I’m not complaining since I am not really contributing anything of significance to my nest egg so the ...

Well another record setting month for my retirement nestegg. An all-time new high that is almost $30,000 higher than last month’s total. My portfolio performance greatly outperformed the market as a whole and my hypothetical safe withdrawal rate from my nestegg broke through the $30,000 a year threshold. I did also have a larger than normal 401k contribution due to my annual bonus hitting this month ...

Another record high for me this month and despite very flat performance by the market as a whole, but my individual stock performance greatly exceeded the market this month, which is good because overall they haven’t been too hot the last year or more. Compounding is still cool and big numbers keep getting bigger. Look forward to this trend continuing. Taxable Account- $46,806.77 (+3.94%) Private Stock $63,100 (+5.17%) Traditional Rollover IRA ...
