Sigh…  Not much to say here other than I’m getting tired of seeing the red line below the blue line.  I need to seriously rethink our investment strategy going forward.






April 2013 Net Worth Update (+0.95%)

May 03, 2013 @ 08:50 am by EMS



Considering that I figured that we would experience a net worth decrease in April, I’m pretty happy with the slight increase that we experienced over the month.  The month was expense-heavy due to a new countertop purchase and a few other out-of-the-ordinary expenses that were incurred.

These expenses can be seen below as increase credit card debt.  I am taking advantage of a cash-back program through American Express and will have these paid down to our “normal” levels next month.

Our stock portfolio once again trailed the market this month.  I really need to take some time and try to get it figured out and balanced so that we can start seeing some improvement in that category.

May should be a relatively quiet month in regards to expenses.  We have our new countertop installation late in the month, so I’m sure we will have a few incidental associated costs, but nothing major.
