Oct09 net worth

October 30th, 2009 at 06:20 am

Um... this can't be right. This month is, by far, the biggest jump I've ever had since I started tracking my net worth.

Why? I'm not sure! In fact, I just triple-checked my numbers because I simply don't believe it!

Hmm. For one thing, it appears that my stock positions did extremely well over October. Extremely well. I'm completely out at this point, but that's the main driver.

Secondly, and this kind of shocks me, but my cash reserve has increased substantially. It shocks me because I did go to Atlantic City for a weekend, and the overall cost was substantial.

I mean, I'm not trying to gloat or anything. Honest. I'm just shocked and a little alarmed more than anything. How in the world did the numbers work out so favorably? I'm going to check again....

Edit: Ok, I know what happened. My road trip was made in advance, back in Sept. Therefore, I took the cash hit there. This month, the guys paid me back their share, creating that artificial bump in this month's calculations. Still, most of the money did come from the stock market.

    I understand how you feel. My jump from September to October was so huge that I had to do a double take because I knew that couldn't be right. Sometimes your planning leads to big gains. I must admit though, I am not looking forward to the time in life where the stock market makes the biggest change in my networth. I have a feeling I could grow conservative at that point, lol.

    I think it's good that you got it straight in your head, and congrats on the strong market performance. You'd hate to attribute it all to that only to have that not actually be the case.

    But a rise in NW? Good goings!! I'm off to do my NW sheet update.
