After two months of portfolio declines, we finished March at no change! Yes, you read that right. Our portfolio value finished the month with less than $100 difference from February. I think that is the first time ever! Our year to date total remains at -7.0%.
Our total percent increase since the beginning of our dollar plan is 972.7%.
March Performance Highlights
Worst: Fifth Third Bank
Best: Vanguard REIT Index
Worst: Vanguard Emerging Markets Index
I plan to finally sell the Fifth Third Stock. I have consolidated the certificates into one account. In addition, I’m considering giving our kids the rest of the individual stocks. It will depend on the final result of our taxes after the recharacterization.
