As 2018 is almost over I think it’s time to review the portfolio and performance.
Overall result is -13%. Somewhat depends on calculations – I use broker day end values. so more or less… This can be compared to -9.7% FTSE all share (total return), far below my 30% target for the year. Many ideas havent worked this year so what has saved me is profit which was really from 2017 and rolled over the year end in the calculation – particularly Tejoori.
Long term performance has been strong – still 7X up over the last 10 years – long term chart below: Continue reading “2018 Performance / Portfolio Review -13%, could be worse” →
Just done my final performance numbers for 2017 – I recon the figure will come out at +c37%.

2016 is almost over so I thought I would go through what worked, what didnt and my plans for 2017.
+33% is OK – FTSE100 is up 14%, 250 up 3% AIM all share 14%. Peak to trough draw-downs across these are about 10% where as my portfolio (OK measured monthly) was only down 5% from peak at its worst.
My review of 2015 is interesting putting this in context. I anticipated that TRB and SIHL would do well but not that I would come up with other good ideas or that TJI would do well.

New position – 9% portfolio weight.
It has a market cap of £25.9m and a NAV ex goodwill of £94.3m. Simply getting to this implies a 200%+ return…
