As I mentioned the blog was a bit disorganised it also made me wonder about how the stocks I have mentioned that I have owned have done. What I decided to do here is first note the price of the stock either when I purchased as disclosed here, or the price when I posted some comments on a stock I was holding.
Then I looked up the price now, or if sold earlier noted that. It should understate the performance as I haven’t noted dividends. If you feel I have made an error please point it out as this was done quickly.
The results looked quite good but probably much better than I have personally achieved. I may not cover every trade and holding etc. here and I have probably spoken more here about gold holdings as it has been topical.
Nonetheless here is what I found, some big losers in there but more than made up from with some winners. I tried averaging each and came up with a positive movement of 12%for each stock. Given we are only in May and markets haven’t done much if measured since Jan 1 that looks ok.
I may decide to track things in the future if it’s not too onerous. Below is the individual breakdown.
|PRICE WHEN BOUGHT||PRICE AT MAY 2ND||%|
|OR MENTIONED HERE||OR SOLD LEVEL||CHANGE|
|AS A HOLD|
|AVERAGE START OF 2016 TO MAY 2ND||11.8%|
Please note I may or may not hold the above at the time of writing and they are not to be treated as recommendations or advice..
