Story so far…

Currently I am sitting on a approximately 40% Cash and 60% equity balance. This is because currently I only have a partt-ime job with irregular hours so I feel the need for a greater safety net incase of release from employment, sickness or other extreme events. This sum should be able to sustain me for an approximated year and a half with no additional income.

Being a months since I started this blog I realized I think it would be nice for me to keep a journal of how my portfolio changes, the resource allocations and the asset allocations within these resources. I’ll start by making a list here in this post but I’m contemplating filing these away under a new tab. Potentially called one of the following “Portfolio Allocations / Portfolio History / Asses Allocations.”

Currently (2017-03-02):

CASH: (% is given of the total portfolio)

Low Interest rate account (0.7%) :  36.6%

Non Interest rate account (0.0%) :  5.6%


Stocks :  42.7%

Bonds:   15.1%


xxxx:xx %

Total Debt in % of net worth  78.8%

2016-06-26:  (Approximately start of my investment phase)

CASH: (% is given of the total portfolio)

Low interest rate account (0.7%)  : 92.2%

Non-interest account (0.00%)     : 0.94%


Stocks :  4.1%

Bonds :  2.8%


xxxxx: xx %


Total debt in % of net worth : 89.4%

I wish you all the best until next time,

IPO gambling

For the past year there have been a series of initial public offerings (IPOS) in my local market and several friends of mine have jumped on the bandwagon in buying a fair deal of them and then selling them of at the initial time of release.
Currently they have made a great income on these transactions (about 15% plus after taxes) which is by my own investing means a great rate of return, but also these investments are liquidfied within a certain time period. Allowing for further greater investments into IPO’s like the interest on intrest effect that is the dirving force behind financial freedom.

I deem that these actions are considered gambles as you never know if you’ll strike gold or not, but if one plans it out: say I’ll use $100,000 in 100 IPOs for a 1000 dollars in each IPO. This would reduce the risk of an all out failure and still have a potential for great yields.

I’ll hopefully return to this subject after I’ve stabalized my current asset allocations to my desired positions. That is 20% cash, 30% estate, and 50% stock and bonds.

Best wishes,
