Portfolio Update: September 2018

To be honest, 2018 has been a tough year for my portfolio. Since the portfolio reached its high in January, the return hasn’t recovered. However, I shouldn’t complain much I still hold about $15,000 gain and the return has still been higher than the S&P500.

While my portfolio still beats the market, the gap has been narrowing since January.

What’s interesting is that while Japanese stocks have been performing quite well (from 80% - 200% gain), the returns of Canadian stocks have been somewhat mediocre. I wonder if this could be because I have a competitive edge analyzing Japanese stocks or I simply bought the stocks at a good timing. I suppose time will tell as the timing of purchase will matter a lot less in the long-term.
