April 2018 Budget Roundup: The Net Worth & Investments
Sherry’s April 2018 Net Worth
Or an increase of…
+$4455.59 or +0.69%
Stock markets are down, my spending was up (omg), but my net worth still went up anyway thanks to my day job.
This is what it looks like:
- Stock market still not doing well — If we head into a bear market, I read or heard somewhere that this is good news for me in MY retirement years because the market will have time to recover & be golden in my golden years
- I’m stockpiling cash — I need to see if I get extended. Will know more later.
At least the direction is up?
Now for everyone’s favourite Little Bun:
Little Bun’s April 2018 Net Worth
Or an increase of…
+$2060.26 or +7.80%
Some of the money is from the government as usual, but his portfolio just exploded this month. This is how I invest his money in the stock market.
DIVIDENDS FOR THE PREVIOUS MONTH
My statements are all a month behind (am too lazy to go line by line and calculate it myself transactionally), so I will always be a month behind in this regard.
So this is something I changed from last month. I think I socked something like $20,000 into the market buying dividend-paying stocks (while paying attention to their long-term viability).
I also re-purchased a few more of my old favourite stocks.
ONCE I GET EXTENDED..
It is almost a certainty but I never say anything is in stone until I have a piece of paper.
Sometime in the next month I should know, and then another $40,000 (my emergency fund) gets thrown into the stock market.
Freakin’ killed me. I had to find time to do it then I forgot all about all the investments I liquidated. OMG.
Anyway, whooooosh $$$$ out of my pocket.
I am pleased that it’s all done and over with. I just need to focus on moving forward.
FUTURE NET WORTH
Speaking on focusing on moving forward, I am looking at hitting a goal of $750,000 in my net worth by the end of the year.
Shall I make it? We shall see… I hate missing goals. $750,000 is doable, it’s another $100,000 on top of what I have right now.
I should be able to make it. No emergencies withstanding.
ON MY TO DO LIST…
- More dividend stock research and investing — when I have time *eye roll*
- Hit $750,000 net worth for the end of the year IF I AM EXTENDED
