State of the Mutual Fund

After much hesitation, I decided to check the status of my mutual funds and see how it has been performing so far. I’ve been making regular monthly contributions for almost two years now.

Gain/Loss Percentage: -28.61%

Sadness.

    Rico, I know what you mean! Good thing I was able to shift my account to fixed income after Lehman collapsed and only lost around 10%.

And the phil. stock index is at its lowest today! hay naku! when will it stop. sakit sa loob! i’m thinking of withdrawing them pero i don’t wanna make the lose a reality! kaso the longer it stays there parang lalo pang bumababa!

  7. It depends really. Would you follow Warren Buffet’s advice of “If everyone is afraid, be greedy. If everyone is greedy, be afraid”?Everybody is afraid now.

  11. I just checked again. I think I’m now at -32%. Worse than a few days ago but I guess still a far cry from -47%.I hope things get better soon for all of us mutual fund holders.Btw Booyah, I don’t think we’ve met but I’m sure we have lots of common friends as I use to live in Kagoshima. Nice to meet you.
