Your average ROI in the last 15 years
 
This is not a contest.* There is no winner or loser here.

Just curious as to how you did with your portfolio in the past 15 years.* Mine is 11%.

Hey, I thought this wasn't a contest. ;)

What the ROI doesn't tell you is volatility. What you really want to know is alpha.

My long-term ROI is pretty high, but a lot of it is attributable to the year I sold my business (something like a 4000% ROI).

No, it's not a contest.* But [over 16%] for 15 years definitely deserves a round of applause!

OK folks, I have added a new field for the poll.* You can now vote even if you have no idea about your average ROI.

I did not start seriously investing any dough before 1998, and only started actually measuring returns a bit more seriously around 2000. Guessing around 10%/year for the entire period. Cheers!

house (not yet actualized): returning between 15.3 & 16.7% yearly (optimistically discounting current dip in market) over past 13 year period.

401k: not really sure. i wasn't very knowledgeable on investing so just kept it diversified among 9 different funds plus company stock which split twice. don't know delta % over the years but seems to me i did pretty darned good. turns out i rebalanced yearly even though i had no idea what rebalancing was. i was just tidying things up so it would look nice.

inheritance: what would that be, a 100% return? though considering the trouble i caused at least for the first 15 years maybe i did a little better than 100%. add to that my adolescence (17-18 was brutal) and roi is priceless.

I've wondered the same thing about my ROI recently. Networth has gone up 8x in the past 11 years since I've been keeping track from $300K to $2500K. But there are lots of contributions in addition to the appreciation, and I haven't been keeping close enough tabs on them to know what the ROI is. I'm too lazy to try to go back and find out, so, no idea is the best I can do. :-X

Wild guess (based on your data) is [over 16%] for that 11 years period. Wow!!!

Gotta watch the effect of the contributions. That's what skewed the Beardstown Ladies' returns.
