Its only a matter of time before we start multiplying random numbers by 25.
Who needs to multiply by 25 when you can get an ultra safe 7.5% after age 70! - And you don't even believe in eating into principal!

Maybe just multiply that random number by 13 and party on!

For a Mensa guy, I thought you would come up with something better than this. Pretty lame.

By the way, the crap that works on johnny doesnt work as well on me...

Re: Total Portfolio ROI - January 2007

If you start on 1/1/07 with $100k and end with $101k on 1/31/07, you'd have a return of 1% for the month. Annualized, that's 12.7%, unless you're withdrawing your gains each month (1.01^12 = 1.1268). A 1.5% gain for January would mean a 19.6% annualized gain.


Just throwing more numbers into the thread.

Re: Total Portfolio ROI - January 2007

What would a -2% in Feb do to the results. Don't get too excited, nothing goes up in a straight line.
