Ed’s Full Portfolio Summary for August 2014   1 comment

Here are my final portfolio results for August:

Ed’s Overall: +1.47%
Ed’s IRA: -0.21%
Ed’s 401k: +3.03%
S&P 500: +3.77%
ACWI (all-world index):+2.58%
Nasdaq:+4.82%

Although I had 8 positive daytrades against 5 negative in my IRA, my final results were down 0.03%. The last multi-day trade was what put me into the red. Without that one, my daytrades were up 0.08%.

As for my 401k, it was a pretty good month, even if I didn’t beat the benchmarks:

  1. ED, Are you still monitoring this site ?? It has been a long time since you signed off and I was wondering how your stocks were doing. I mostly do Dividend Stocks after a Roll Over from my employment from LMCO. I have bought all the stocks I could (from sale of Mutual Funds) and wait each Quarter for my Divis to come in and look for deals on the stocks I own. Have been working on Remodeling my house in Denver (after Improving Mom’s house in Texas that she gave me after returning from Afghanistan in 2013… Thinking I could get a Job in the Oil Industry… ha ha ) any way, Just about done here in Denver and will just about have a New house as I put in new doors, windows, bathrooms, Kitchen and appliances. will have to get a job and come back from Texas to fix the back deck (that I put my foot through) and then again when I have money for a new Roof. Maybe in 4 – 5 Years I will decide if I want to sell it or move here in Denver to work (going to School in Texas where it is cheaper to live). Hope all is well and when I am on the road and pass thru Georgia I will be thinking of you (and my friends in N & S. Carolina when it rains/Floods).
