Retirement Nestegg Report February 2020

Retirement Nestegg Report February 2020

Well February was an exciting month. My nestegg hit two new milestones in the same month going north of $1.4M and $1.5M in the same month and then the last week of the month dropping over $200,000 from the high to actually finish down from the prior month.

My individual stocks still outperformed the market by a wide margin, which is actually surprising since they have done so well for so long and I have many high fliers that would expect would fall harder/faster than the market in general. I also added a new account over at M1 Finance that I am testing out so you will see a new taxable account in my report going forward.

I actually missed out on the fun last week as I was on a family vacation and really didn’t get to see the effect of the drop from last week until I filled out this report. The little bit that I saw on the tvs at the airport made me think the sky was falling and I’d be pennyless when I flew back home. The end result is my nestegg has fallen all the way back to what it was the middle of January (6 weeks ago) – which is still $400,000 higher than it was last January. I think life will go on 🙂 Don’t waste any of your time watching the news and worry about things that matter (hint you’ll never hear it in the news)
