With a baseline start of $7,928.02, June report comes out to $8,423.58.  Not too shabby this past month.  That is a $495.56 increase.  Sweet!  I must be doing something right.  I know it’s […] The post June 2017 – Monthly portfolio report appeared first on Casual Investing. ...

Each month I review my net worth to see how the month has progressed.  I’ve made a decision to move away from Lending Club contributions as I’ve seen the percentage on return slowly decrease over time.  My returns on Lending Club is 7.28% while Prosper is 12.72%.  Yes, the returns are a big factor in […] The post Shifting contributions away from Lending Club appeared first on Casual Investing. ...

I made a move today stopping recurring cash from Lending Club to Prosper.  My move is based on one number.  Adjusted Net Annualized Return.  I don’t know what it means, but the number is 4 points lower than Prosper.  I rather put my money towards a platform that is higher.  Well, this may be shortsighted […] The post Moving contributions to a single p2p platform appeared first on Casual Investing. ...
