Another week has past, another taper fear in the market. How have i done so far ?
Compared to STI Index excluding dividends, 2013 so far is about flat. See table below.
If you have invested in reits 3 months ago, you would have suffer -10% to -20% capital losses. However if you have invested a year ago, you are still up +10% to +20% capital gains excluding dividends. Paying the right price for everything is important.
So how am i doing ?
I have more capital today than start of year. Still some way from my idea investment portfolio size.
Hopefully Market allows me to increase further.
