Retirement Nestegg Report – May 2013

Retirement Nestegg Report – May 2013

Well pretty sure this month set all time records for biggest increase dollars and percent and out-performance of the SP500. Set an all-time high for my retirement nestegg and am coming very close to breaking through the $300,000 mark. It’s crazy what a tare the stock market in general has been on and in my portfolio as well I have had some crazy high fliers such as Tesla Motors which nearly doubled in value last month alone!

A new item for this month is that I went ahead and added a taxable account to my nestegg report. I have actually had this account for a while and it has been my “play” account where I messed around with options a little bit, but the more I look at my retirement goals the more I think I have overlooked adding money to a taxable account for retirement. Since I plan to retire well before 59.5 I need a source of income I can tap into without any penalties so I am going to start building up a taxable account for just this purpose. So you will see that account now on my monthly reports.
