If someone would have said to me in January that a global pandemic was coming that would soon cause Great Depression-like unemployment; and if theyd come back in late March to say that stock market prices would soon be nearly back to level for the year to date in late May, well, Id have suggested that person should sober up and lay off the wacky tobacky. 2020 just goes to show, nobody knows nuthin.

Just kidding, though I might trim a few percent off of the stock portion.

I'm pretty close. The sum of my bank accounts + portfolio balance is down only 0.52% compared with January 1. Considering that earlier this week I had to pay my annual homeowner's insurance, my annual wind-and-hail (hurricane) insurance, and my twice-a-year car insurance, I'll call it a wash.

As for what to do next? What I always do - - sit on it and do nothing! And try to keep spending down so that eventually my mini-pension and SS income brings me back to where I was on January 1st.

Only down 3%, but nervous. It seems like a lot of layoffs are forthcoming. Expected, but none the less...

As of the end of May, up just over 0.6% year to date. Effectively flat for the year, good enough considering what's been going on. Nominally 50/50 asset allocation.

Jan +1.12%
Feb -6.18% due to COVID-19 fear
Mar -18.25% COVID-19 triggers 3 circuit breakers and 2TT+ in stimulus. This time IS different.
Apr -6.10% Back to Feb levels. Wasn't as fortunate as Lord Ackman and his 2.6BB short. The world has changed.
May +.82% my city burns around me by way of rioters, but hey the folio turned pos again

Down 2.67%. Think we were up somewhere near +3% at some point in February but given the mayhem very happy to be where we are. Did some tax loss harvesting along with some rebalancing and still have some extra cash sitting on the sidelines for the inevitable pullback.

Up 6% YTD. Missed quite a bit of return potential of this recent recovery, but can’t shake the feeling another drop is coming with all the unemployment and bankruptcies.

-3 YTD. Very happy to be where I am at with all that has happened. I am very optimist about the future of markets even with the negatives that are happening and uncertain future.

Down 4.8 on 60/35/5 AA. Could be a bit better, could be a lot worse.

Even - go figure. That is accounting for all of the with drawls for this year.

Going back 1 year (when I turned in my retirement notice) up a few bucks. And that is after joining Robbie's blow that dough club with significant home remodeling and a one month European vacation in 2019.

Dumb luck to have avoided SORR thus far under the circumstances and still have a decent sized nut to live on.

IMHO - When the third quarter earnings come out and the pandemic stimulus ends as scheduled - it will get scary for people trying to make ends meet and frightening for stockholders.

Pretty much even compared to 12/31/19. With all the ups and downs, some major, it's kinda hard to believe it would be that good. No complaints here.
