Yes, my investment accounts (not counting one pure fixed income account and retirement accounts) made 23.9% this year! Well, that's below 31.5% of S&P total, but I still have some fixed income and cash on my accounts. My long term performance (since February 1998) jumped 13.8%, which still beats Dow, S&P, Nasdaq or almost any index you can find. Maybe you can't beat the market, but I can. Well, anybody can. It's just a lot of work.
Anyway, I'm raising my champagne tonight for the New Year.
