The Gameplan


Yesterday I talked about where I have been. Now let's talk where I am going.


Part of the difference between where I was and where I am now is that now I am more diligent and have a stronger belief in diversification. Maybe it’s age, maybe it’s the history of my luck, maybe it's just growing as an investor. In the past I was willing to “cowboy up” to positions as deep as 40 percent of my overall portfolio. However, now I am going to try to limit that to no more than 10 percent, unless the security has been purchased within the last year (in which case I will allow it to grow and then rebalance).


Simply put, here are my principles:

Where have I been?


I am glad to be back blogging. Over the last couple of years I got away from it, mainly because I felt the opportunities have been nearly non-existent. Over the last couple of weeks I have come to the conclusion that this is the new normal. The "central banking powers that be," will do everything and anything in their power to avoid a deflationary spiral. To spite the economy here in Canada (and the US) not doing that well, the markets are at an all time high. How does this make sense? Simply put, money printing.
