My main goal is to build a portfolio of $1,000,000 in 1500 days, starting from 1/1/2013. Every month, I provide an update on my status. My goal for 2013 is to get my portfolio up to $672,750, from a starting point of $586,043. Time to look back on the month of April.
If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that my first quarter was a pretty bad one. Despite a blazing market, my over-allocation in Apple dragged me down. However, things looked good in April as my portfolio went from $600,301 to $617,495 for a gain of $17,194. Woo! This is my best month so far. Here are the big numbers:
- Days elapsed: 119
- Days remaining: 1381
- Overall gains: $31,452
- Left to go (2013): $55,255
May is typically a brutal month for the markets, so I’m not holding my breath for a repeat performance. Also, the markets have been on such a rampage, I think we’re due for a correction. However, things are looking up and I’m eager to see what the rest of the year has in store.
