Viimasel ajal pole ma kuu kokkuvõtteid enam teinud, kuid lubasin seda, et aasta kokkuvõte tulemata ei jää. Head lugemist!
Minu portfelli keskmine tootlus 2018 aastal oli veidi üle 21%, millega võib täitsa rahul olla. 20% piir oli ka üks aasta alguses seatud eesmärkidest. Varaklasside kaupa vaadates oli tootlus hoopiski erinev. Kui aktsiad tootsid miinust, kontol seisvat raha näris euroala üks kõrgeimaid inflatsioone, võlakirjad pakkusid ühtlast rahavoogu, siis ühisrahastuses väljastatud laenud tõid kastanid tulest välja. Aga sellest on täpsemalt juttu juba all pool.
Hi there! Another month has passed and summer warmth has not yet arrived in Estonia. It is time to give my June portfolio update. If someone is not yet noticed, half of the 2015 has passed (too fast!), therefore I plan to soon write another post about my half year goal progress.
What happened in June?
Nothing super interesting happened, but it was good month full of different sport activities. I started to use my bicycle when going to work (on sunny days) and I like it. You can look my progress on the chart below.
We Estonians also had our national holidays called “Jaanipäev” and “Eesti võidupüha” and I personally had almost 5 day mini vacation that included grilling and eating. It is a time when a lot of people drink and eat too much. I managed to avoid the first one entirely and the second one was managed also fairly good. The only regret is that I did not do much sport during that 5 day period only some work in our summer home.
BTW. I had an idea that someone should organize “Finatsvabadus” groups “summer days” event. For example, few hours of chatting and grilling meat in the nature. Maybe someone has a good spot/summer home near Tallinn?
Enough of that, back to numbers!
June was again worse than 2 previous months, mostly because lower dividend income, however, this is expected due to the yearly dividend payment policy in the Baltic stock market. When not taking dividends into account, it was still worse than May as the advertisement income has decreased also (people spend less time on-line in summer). Continue reading “June 2015 update”→
In the last post I described by finance goals for 2015. I realized that I it would be beneficial also to create and write down my personal goals to see if this approach increases the success rate of my objectives.
It is said that all goals should be measurable and traceable. It was easy to set numeric values for my finance goals but it is not so easy and intuitive for my personal goals. However I will give a try at least. I try to categorize the goals into different groups.
These are my initial goals. I will update this post if I find some more interesting goals that are missing.
Health and Fitness
1) Workout or do sports at least 4.5 hours a week. That is 52*4 = 234 hours total. (Last year I tracked 169 hours, however I did not log all my workouts).
2) Lift weights at least on average 2 times a week.
3) Log all my workouts using Endomondo to track effort and goals.
1) Track time on freelance projects and analyze time consumption of different project reoccurring tasks to improve them and therefore increase the productivity and money earned per hour.
Learning new things
1) Learn and use at least in one project PHP framework named Phalcon.
2) Learn and use at least in one project Javacript frameowrk named React.
1) Read at least 2 books about investing into stocks.
If you have any interesting challenges or goals that I should add then please let me know!
