Friday’s post entitled, “The People Asked To Get ROCKED And A Boulder Fell On Their Heads” wasn’t supposed to go up. I’m trying to limit the amount of big government love related posts, but “every time I try and get out, they pull me back in”! Let the record show that I’m not against Democrats, I’m just disappointed in the system. I do apologize to readers for the John Edwards of the world though. At least politicians make life a little less boring.
The Samurai Fund is down 2.7% YTD, which compares favorably to the S&P 500 down 3.7% YTD. Still, losing money is disappointing and I wonder if we have to change our outlook and investments given the anti-capitalism rhetoric by the government. Should we raise cash? Sell some of the winners? Need some thoughts from the contributors and readers in general who have investments in the markets.
Perhaps now is the best time to open up the fund to 2 or 3 new entrants given the declines. I will need help from someone to do a screen shot each week, because my 12″ monitor on my rocking 5 year old iBook G4 can only fit 17 entries!
The Freedom Fund continues to chug along slowly, with a $2,000 increase for January. Nothing special, just savings from cash flow.
