Happy New Year 2017 Investors!

I happily welcome the year 2017. 2016 had been quite major for me. I am praying for a good 2017. 2016 mark my 10 year blog anniversary. After 10 years, its unfortunate, I begin to have quite an history of my own and I am slowly but certainly getting older even if age haven't broke in my skin yet. This being said, 2016 had been the year of the almost $200 000 net worth. I closed the year sitting on a pot of gold of $184 074.35.

In 2016, I realized how bad I can be as an investor - but not in every way. Whenever I try to play a quick buy-and-sell game to make money fast on the market, most of the time, it won't work. It was the case with SWY and my US gun stock SWHC. I cannot be good at everything. Since I began to invest in stock in 2008, my goal was to build a portfolio for the long run, with many many stocks that could take place as beautiful diamonds. This make 9 very long years of investing for the long run, its where my instinct work at its best. I don't make the greatest choices when I picked for the sort term, so I decided to flush on the short term right now and only have the long term in my mind for my 2017 investment brand new fresh year. 

Think about this. In a flash, back in 2014, my net worth was at $101 172.99. 2 years later in grow up to $184 074.35. I haven't invest much in 2016. I expect 2017 to be about the same in term of new investments for many reasons. Two of them would be to leave some money in my bank account for once and try to reduce my usage of margin. But even before paying down my margin, I would be very happy just to have a couple thousands in the bank.
