Im still contributing aggressively and am too lazy to calculate my returns. I can say that our net worth (excluding equity in the home) is back to $0 where it was in november...

My portfolio is down 3.9% YTD, 65% stocks/35% bonds and cash. About a third of my equity portfolio is allocated to international and that asset class has taken a real beating in the past month.

My 60/40 mix brought me a return of -2.86% for Jan. My biggest winner was Vanguard TIPS @ +3.84 but Vanguard Total International dragged down -8.55% for the month.

Hmmmm - Target Retirement 2015 down 3.6% but my port 85% target and 15% individual stocks show up 0.58%.

A wash handgrenade wise - do I want to go looking at the stocks that went up? - nope.

Plus autodeduct doesn't take out my money for yearly expenses til 2/16 so the divs/interest are still in there.

The stocks are hobby money anyway so I'll go with -3.6% aka Target 2015.

heh heh heh -

-4.23 COB yesterday. Should be a little less when today's figures get picked up in the spreadsheet. About 80% equities.

Over 3 years compounded, that kind of a return can turn $10,000 into about $600,000. In 10 years, he'll be hanging with the Billionaire's club.

My Roth (which is my only "trading" account) is up 18% due to moving more into financials after the slaughter, but remainder of investments are down just over 1%.

Down 4.2%. Very rare for a January. This is an all stock portfolio with no additions. Of course, it was at 443,000 in June 2007. Nature of the market.

-5.42% ROI (Quicken) overall 12/31/07 - 1/31/08

50% in Vanguard Target Retirement 2035 (-5.75% ROI)
45% in Fidelity Freedom 2035 (-6.42% ROI)
5% in employer stock (+7.7% ROI)

Note the 100% indexed target fund fared better than the primarily actively managed target fund, hmmm
