Trade Review: Year End Part 2

Here are how some of the numbers breakdown to my last post on my year end results. Of course, I am no Bill Rempel or Geoff Gannon, so my math may not be perfect.

As I mentioned in the last post, I ended up with a 19.62% annualized gain. The first set of numbers below are the month to month gain or loss from the prior month. The second column is the annualized percent on a month to month basis. It is interesting to note that I should have went flat (all cash) at the end of November. Guess I stayed to long at the party.

Note: I added money several times through the year and used George's spreadsheet as discussed in this post to figure out the numbers.

Jan 0.01% 0.01%

Feb -1.00% -1.00%

Mar 3.58% 2.79%

Apr 1.92% 3.38%

May 0.93% 4.52%

Jun -2.79% 1.00%

Jul 1.26% 2.57%

Aug 5.28% 9.29%

Sep 0.47% 9.91%

Oct 5.39% 12.80%

Nov 5.35% 26.70%

Dec -2.56% 19.62%

I will continue tomorrow with a comparison to a couple of benchmarks to see if I was able to add any value.

I'm glad my spreadsheet went to good use. Nice performance Steven!

how did a 5.35% gain in Nov. turn your annualized return from 12.80 to 26.70??

As I mentioned, I added money throughout the year. Less early on; more as the year passed. I put a big chunk (at least it was a big chunk for me, lol) in play in late Oct. So I had a lot more money working in November which had a greater impact.

I have a web site where I give advise on penny stocks and stocks under five dollars. I have many many years of experience with these type of stocks. If their is anyone that is interested in these type of stocks you can check out my web site by just clicking penny stocks. I would like to take a moment to talk about low price stocks not classic penny stocks or stocks under one dollar the term most people most often think of when the word penny stock is used. Their are companies of really decent quality trading under five dollars’ but for every one company trading under five dollars that is of decent quality their are maybe ten of poor quality. So the really big difference between those investors that are tremendously successfull when it comes to investing in low price stocks and those investors that lose enormous amounts of money investing in stocks under five dollars’ is having a great deal of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks’ or having a total lack of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks. Finding quality stocks under five dollars requires a lot more research than finding a decent stock above ten dollars.


Great stuff
