Total portfolio worth

This past quarter just shows how fast things can change. In my first report, I had decent gains for most of my stocks. Fast forward 3 months and the picture looks completely different.

There is a clear negative decline between the first and second report I made. There is one reason why my wealth grew regardless. I kept earning money.
Because of that, I could deposit 11,500 EUR into my investment portfolios. 10,000 EUR went into the Beobank portfolio that holds active funds and 1,500 EUR to my personal trading account with Lynx.

While my wealth didn’t grow as much, I’m not too worried though. In fact, I see this is an opportunity. I should be able to get more value for my money when I purchase new shares in 2019.

If at one point you want to see my latest status, I have a separate menu item with my latest portfolio status. In due time this page will contain a timeline with all my quarterly report posts and their respective wealth level.

Keep Calm and Carry On INVESTING
Nothing else to do

USD stocks

The below table contains my stocks denominated in USD. Since the currency rate fluctuates daily, it impacts the total portfolio wealth counter. To keep it simple I will use the rate applicable at the time of writing every quarter (give or take a day). You can find the rate used at the top of this page.

Just like my euro stocks this quarter, my dollar-based stocks received a bit of a beating as well.
Coming from pretty much B/E I received a decline of 0.08 – 19.96 =  -19,88%.

Actively managed portfolio

My portfolio at Beobank containing actively managed funds dropped quite a bit as well.
With a new deposit of 10,000 EUR, I did at the end of November the decline in absolute numbers is now larger of course.
With only one day remaining it’s safe to make a final balance for the year. In percentage the drop is a strong -19.13 – 2.80 = -21.93%.

Pension fund

Just like the other stock portfolios, my pension fund took a beating this quarter as well.
