Portfolio giving 111% return on investment this year in 2019? - Proof in the Pudding

Well I thought I would check on the mock portfolio to see exactly how well the companies I thought would do well and I would buy if I had means to do so and invest were performing.

The answer is:

111%

Now ordinarily if you speak to any financial advisor or Hedge-fund Manager they are going to tell you that getting just a 9% return on your investment is a really big deal so 111% really stands out.

Currently as of September 13, 2019 close of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) you would be getting a 16.7% return on your investment. 

William, I have no idea what you are talking about what exactly does that mean, you forget I do not know anything about Wall Street? 

What it means is that if you gave me $1.00 on January 1, 2019 and your average investment advisor $1.00 that as of the market close on September 13, 2019 and you asked for your money back I would be giving you $2.11 while the broker would be giving you $1.16 or less based on their choices.

So lets see how we did:

The Earth is Not Flat or is it?

One of the most astonishing things in today's modern world is that anyone will believe anything.  Of course the Earth is not flat.

OK, WILLIAM PROVE IT!

No, that is a proven fact by many Scientists, in fact over 200 years ago by Gaspard C. Coriolis,  While I may get comments that want to dispute this claim I do not spend my time arguing with Morons so therefore if you want to comment go ahead, but just realize that myself and many of the other 50,000 people who read my articles are going to understand exactly how stupid you are.

This brings me to the purpose of my article; less than an article it is really more of a rant. In the world of the internet we should not have to provide information or sources when we are stating proven facts. Just because you happen to respond to a Tweet, Facebook post, Instagram comment or other form of social media we should not have to provide references to the 3,600 pieces of evidence and source materials that prove the Earth is round  (want me to pr…

Going Green on St. Patricks Day ~ 4:20pm to be exact meet us!

So legend has it that the reason 420 is associated with Marijuana is that a group of boys in Orange County, California would meet up everyday after school at 420 to smoke.

Cannabis is a growing industry in Canada and with States changing daily like New Mexico any day now the future of the industry is bright and those companies that have taken advantage of that are looking at huge profits.  I wrote an article earlier about WEED and other Cannabis stocks but it is time to add one to our portfolio and for that reason I choose Aurora Cannabis (ARB-CA) out of Canada as of Friday's close was at $12.83  so we will buy 2 shares to be compatible with our current portfolio.

Aurora seems to make a big jump every time they announce earnings but after that jump the stock does not slide, it maintains at that price point.  The stock is up 89% for the year and although the price per earnings ratio is -450% sometimes you need to overlook that if you are in a playing field that is wide open.  Base…

Reverse Split ! AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!

Avoid a reverse split at all costs it means the company is in financial trouble let's take HMMY Helios and Matheson who used to trade at $4229 a share now worth .0008 a share.  They own a subsidiary called Movie Pass which allowed you to see all movies for $14.95 in theater, good concept gone bad, they also did other electronic database systems type of things then were caught in a fraud scandal and stock plummeted. On March 15th they waill announce the reverse stock split and maybe how many shares of Movie pass which they are spinning off to see how company survives. It is my opionion if will not.  Only the spin off from Movie Pass will. But as an unpopular product with consumers I doubt it will be profitable.

Borrowed Voice? Fake News? WilliamsWallstreet.com Cannot be bought!

This is a picture from the Launch Party of WilliamsWallStreet.com held in October of 2017 I am sitting with some of my closet friends (who I love, who I trust and whose advice I trust; and who I provide advice too.)

I feel the same about my readers you are all my friends, when I set out on this adventure a year and a half ago I had no idea that in such a short period of time I would grow to over 50,000 readers!  I apologize it has taken awhile to write another column but I wanted to see the direction the market was truly taking before making an educated guess.  That appears to be a world economic slowdown that is at the moment being masked by increased corporate profits beating market expectations and earnings reports aat least meeting target; at the current moment on Wall Street.  Then I realized that is not the story.

The fact my readership went over 50,000 is the real story and why? My Blog is independent.  I am not obligated to any corporation or brokerage firm. I do not rely on …

So how is our pretend Porfolio doing? ~ William you let us down!

Homeless Jerry, I do not like it when readers sound off in the title, but remember I said this is a 5 year, 10 year or 20 year plan the are no quick fixes If you want to continue putting your money in Bitcoin, bet on the horses, or visit Las Vegas I won't stop you.  Before I start this article I already know we are loosing based on the stocks I looked at but this is why this is a 20 year plan not a 1 1/2 year; you suck William plan.

"I am homeless now and you left me broke!"

No, Jerry you were homeless before you ever started reading my blog.  I am here to teach you about the basics of Wall Street, the basics of investing and how to get smart with money.  People like Clark Howard, Dave Ramsey, Susie Orman, Warren Buffett and William Greider all understand one principal if you want to make money you must follow basic economic principals.

"Your stocks suck!"

Looking for value in a Bear Market

George Bailey kept his head during the 1928 stock market crash when many investors chose to make a run on the bank or in his case the Bailey Building and Loan which by comparison to today's world would be a credit union.  Although we have had a choppy ride and the market is well under performance for the year down from the totals I posted in another article. This is the time to buy not sell those companies that have a strong upward potential like Apple or Nividia think of them as being on sale and a chance for you to have the opportunity to benefit from their eventual upward momentum.

Let everyone else panic; do not sell off your 401K or your EFT's or even your blue chip stocks (explained in earlier articles) at this time.  Warren Buffet included this poem by Rudyard Kipling in his 2017 Berkshire Hathaway letter to his shareholders and I can't think of anything that sums up what I am saying better than his statement:

If you can keep your head when all about yo…
