When I started investing in 2005 with a little under $2,000, I never would have dreamed I could have made it to $100,000. With everything considered, (the financial crash of 2008, the double-dip recession fears in 2012, artificial inflation worries caused by the Fed etc.) I am just thankful to still be in the fight.
Sure, had I taken more risk over the years, I would have eclipsed $100,000 ten times over. In fact, had I just put my money where my mouth was on these cannabis stocks YTD, I would have been a millionaire by 28. But in investing, as in life, hindsight is always 20/20.
I would not change anything at the moment because, after all, the strategy has brought me this far. So, as usual, I am prudently selling my winning stocks into the strength and patiently buying them back on the weakness. Since the S&P 500 uptrend remains intact, and a rising tide raises all ships, there is nothing left to do, at the moment, except to enjoy the ride! Here is a snapshot of my portfolio below, up 15% YTD. Regards.
Use caution as the $SPY has broken technical support. Still a buyer on dips.
