Here’s my quarterly portfolio update for Q3 2018. These are my real-world holdings and consists of 401k/403b/IRAs and taxable brokerage accounts however excludes our house, money reserves, and a couple of side financial investments. The objective of this portfolio is to create adequate income to cover our family expenses. As of 2018, we are ” Target Property Allocation. Our general objective is to consist of property classes that will provide long-term returns above inflation, disperse income by means of dividends and interest, and finally

use some historical tendencies to balance each other out. I personally think that United States Little Value and Emerging Markets will have higher future long-term returns(along with some higher volatility )than US Large/Total and International Large/Total, although I could be wrong. I don’t hold commodities, gold, or bitcoin as they don’t offer any income and I don’t think they’ll surpass inflation substantially. I think that it is essential to imagine a possession class doing poorly for a very long time, with bad news constantly surrounding it, and just hold the ones where you still think you can maintain faith.
