A late post, as things got really busy for me at work toward the end of the year. My portfolio's performance was probably at it's worst moment if we looked from the short term perspective. Return YTD was -13.05%, XIRR YTD was -17.05%, and XIRR since inception was -1.14%.
The positive thing was I received the sale proceeds of my flat and injected some of the cash into the portfolio. With a $120K cash injection, I went on a buying spree. As an optimist, I believe the darkest hour will be just before the dawn, and there was no better time to buy except when everyone was fearful. Aside from healthcare and consumer stocks, I also bought banks and other beaten-down stocks like Boeing.
I received dividends of $1,139.05 in Oct 2020, bringing the total dividends YTD to $20,154,70.
