Summary of July 2017

Summary of July 2017

The strange situation continues at work which means that I have started to look around for a new job somewhere in Europe and in countries that will remain within Europe. Last time it took me a bit over a year to find a new job and the fact that the pound is down by -20% is helping me in this decision. Additional help comes from that I am getting more and more non function related assignments that are currently costing me so much time that I am not able to lead my team in a, to me, acceptable way.

My stocks seems to have been a bit more defensive than DAX during these two last months which I like to see but two months is nothing considering how long the race is so there is no reason to jump up and down out of joy.

For the previous summary please visit Summary of June 2017 and here you can see my stock portfolio as it is.

Invested versus current value July 2017

The total invested value is now up at: 89,217 € including a realised loss of -551 €.

Current portfolio July 2017

The value of the portfolio is today: 97,628 € and spread out I now have around 6,800 € in cash on the different accounts. The combined gain is now at: 8,411 € (9%) which is not as good as one would have liked.

Me vs DAX July 2017

DAX have ended up having a good run and is now up at 12,181 points which means an decrease of -2.4% which should be compared to my own stock portfolio that decreased with only -0.1%.

Conclusion: Second month in a row of me beating DAX. Great if it continue but I doubt that it will.
