I get paid tomorrow. It’s cool to see it go up, but I should prepare myself for it to drop again. In a year, I’m saving around $60k. That’s about +14.7 on my net worth, plus whatever the investments return. Maybe I should focus on total shares of stock owned instead of money.
$73,761 – that’s the difference in net worth between April 14, 2016 and April 14, 2015. Let’s make a pie chart.
Sigh. Almost all of it has to do with the condo. 54.1% of it isn’t related to my behavior. 45.9% reflects about $33,856. A lot was devoured by investment losses. Too much. Let’s look at my savings behavior for that same period.
$69,704 –> $114,885. $45,181 is how much I saved during that period. So of the money I saved for the last year, about 25% of it was lost. FUCK. That’s so frustrating. It’s like I saved $4k every month for the last year, and $1k just fucking disappeared. That’s $12k. Accounting for taxes, that’s like $20k of my gross income just fucking disappeared. It’s no mystery what happened to it: Andy’s shitty investment advice, that I took like a moron. What would have happened if I had invested only in VTI for the last year?
- What were my major investment dates?
- What was the price of VTI?
