August 2019 Performance

Yup, you guessed it, I didn’t do a thing in August. Surprisingly I was able to eke out a gain in the face of this volatility. This has been the most challenging market for me in terms of finding new ideas to put money in. It’s a bit frustrating, but just have to wait it out. I am starting to do some research on foreign stocks to try to find some good values.

Looking back… It’s interesting to see how my investing style has evolved. I started off as an aggressive growth investor and just went with high flying momentum stocks. From momentum investing, I transitioned to special situation plays. I really enjoy the special situation plays as there is usually an end game where you can make some nice $$$ if you’re right or it can just blow up in your face. Now, I am more focused on dividend paying stocks as I start to appreciate the compounding effect of dividend reinvestment. I’ve learned to be flexible with my investment style as market conditions change.

Ok, enough of my rambling…

2019 Performance = +28.56% with the running monthly returns as follows:

January +7.4%

February +3.7%
March +5.06%

That was some nasty sell off on V and MA

MA and V had a great run this year so not surprising they are pulling back a bit. Still not low enough for me to consider adding to my position.
