January 2012: A look in the rear view mirror

Jan. was a solid month for The Stoic Investor and a great start to the year.  I managed to save 76% of my gross income and added to my portfolio with the purchase of TEF.  The TEF purchase was made with funds from December.  I’m attempting to build up a cash reserve  during the first quarter of 2012 and not make any more investment purchases during that time.  The details for this decision will be expounded upon in a future post later this week.

Hope everyone had a great start to the new year as well.

  1. Great job saving 76% of your gross income! I only saved 30% of my net income this month (which I’m going to post about very soon), but that was including the purchase of a car…which is obviously an unusual purchase.

    Hopefully you continue to have a fantastic 2012!

    • Thanks DM. Mine is not really that impressive due to the favorable pay and expenses realated to my current position. Your rate of 30% AND buying a car is very impressive indeed. I’m thinking you are going to have a big year!
