An update for the last 2 months covering May & June 2019. From now on it will be monthly updates, as long as I remember to take a snapshot of my portfolio at month end. Being an accountant, month end is already busy but should be able to get it down.
Another (short) period of good performance. Consistent on the savings/cash in, and good investments gains. Getting close to 100k now. Target is to reach the milestone before the end of 2019. If the market continues to be bullish and my savings rate doesn’t change I will get there soon.
One of the best performers in this period was Merlin Entertainment as it was announced that Lego would be taking the company private at a 15% premium, see my blog post here. A good result for me with an annualised gain of 9.5% in total.
When the sale completes it will change the balance of my portfolio removing a chunk of equity & UK investment. I don’t have anything to replace it with and am looking for ideas but am in no rush.
Prior to the announcement of Merlin, I started purchasing shares in Lloyds Bank. There will be a blog post about my reasons soon.
Here’s what I could buy if I cashed out – A house in Leeds!
