The year 2017 was yet another successful year for our collected ETF/stock-portfolio.
At the end of Q2 we predicted that this might be another 30+ % year for the entire account. And it turned out to be exactly that.
By the end of december 2017 we achieved +30,17 % for the 4th time over the last 10 years. 6 of the last 10 years have been above 20% and we have yet to experience a losing year in the portfolio.
We are planning to keep running our portfolio in the same solid and low risk manner as we have done so far. “Slow” and steady is our preffered approach to investing. The question of course is if it can be called “slow” since we are constantly outperforming our benchmark indicies. But it’s important not to fall into the leverage-trap and using too much margin when things have gone well for a while. So our method is still to work without any leverage so we don’t take too much heat if the market crashes.
Happy new year to all of you.
