Net Worth Update (+2.5%)

by iam1percent on May 1, 2013 · 4 comments

Click here to see my current net worth.  Overall, an increase in net worth of $34,841 since my last update early April.

The major drivers of the increase were:

  • Investment gains in the market (S&P again hit an all-time high)

Most of the increase this month can be attributed to stock market gains.  Liabilities continue to trend downwards while assets continue to climb.  As noted in a prior post, I will be shelling out close to $4,000 for pool repairs this month, though I’ve already paid a $2,000 deposit.  Additionally, we will be going on vacation this month which may run us close to $3,000 for hotel, airfare, and other incidentals.  I’ll write up a post about those expenses soon.

How did you do this month?

Nice job. That’s a huge increase. You must be holding onto some pretty nice stocks :) or do you index? My net worth only went up by $5,200 in April. Have fun on your vacation.

I index….i don’t have the time to research individual stocks so I pay the experts via a mutual fund or ETF!

Being in the market during 2013 is the place to be and it may be that this trend may continue. Good work and enjoy your vacation.
