Wow, seven days into 2013 and this is the first post on Canada Gen, how low have we stooped?HAPPY NEW YEARI'm hoping this works out better than the previous attempt to have units contract manufactured that ended in lawsuits and the company having to do it's own manufacturing. }};-()Everything involving airplanes takes forever to change (except in wartime) and clearly this product is proving that.

And a Happy New Year to you too Tim. I had a stellar year for 2012, more than doubling the TSXT-T gain of 6.17%, including the portion of my portfolio that is in fixed income which mostly earned only 1.25%. I have not been tracking my equities portion separately but it must have done quite well to beat the TSXT. Busy now doing my annual re-balancing which seems to be more difficult each year.Hoping that I can at least equal my results for 2012.Cheers,Bob
My total return for 2012 was 2.35% which is not bad when I am 75% cash or money-market (0.9%).Time to relax under a palm tree.Aloha allBob
Aloha allBobEnjoy, sounds a lot warmer than my two weeks in Washington DC over the holidays. A bit on topic, this was interesting. Tim http://howardgroupinsightnewsletter.blogspot.ca/2013/01/anti...
I also beat the TSXT-T. Held onto PMT too long though which set me back a bit, and I knew better. It was pretty clear to me. Oh well it is not a perfect game.I was never under 50% cash.Up 2% overall this year already!! :)IKan, Ikan, I think I can.
More importantly my incoming cashflow (mainly dividends) grew by approx. 45% due to growth/increases and new purchases.Wednesday I sold a December buy for a 54% gain. It happened a few weeks earlier than I suspected it would. It was intended as a trade.Learning more patience as I get older and sticking 100% to my strategies and objectives does seem to be paying off the last few years. Simple seems to work for this simple lad.Have a profitable and learning 2013.IKan
I have managed to segregate the equity portion of one of my accounts which represents about 50% of my total portfolio and calculate the return on it separately. Turns out that I am up 18.18% including dividends, for 2012. I am amazed!Bob
