This post is an update of the previous post made in mid-2012.
Below is the latest portfolio as of 11th Jan 2013:
Cerebos (ticker: C20) has since been delisted at $6.60. The “buying” price was at $2.30. Returns on this company alone was 187%. Overall portfolio returns, with Cerebos included, was 301.66% instead of 312.54% as shown. As seen from the screenshot above, the overall percentage of profit is even higher than in mid-2012, which was at 204% then.
One obvious trend I have noticed over the past years as an investor is that whenever there is a correction in the stock market due to negative news, the market always bounces much higher than the previous peak almost immediately, to give higher much returns. Thus, the bottom line is always to stay invested and buy more on dips (caveat emptor: only if your company is fundamentally strong!).
Many have commented that my portfolio is doing very well and asked when I bought those stocks. Do note that the above portfolio is a hypothetical one and it is not my personal portfolio.I would be more than happy to trade this portfolio for my personal portfolio!
