2016 August Monthly update (+12,4% vs. 6,9%)

After 5 months of investing I've decided to cash all my shares. I was really lucky so far, so it's time to take a breath. I think that NASDAQ will fall a bit so I'm going to wait a bit and buy cheaper shares soon.

My investing diary in August:

3/08/2016 5 Fiserv Inc shares sold - 7.3% profit

8/08/2016 20 Tucows Inc shares sold - 36.9% profit

10/08/2016 30 Matrix Service Co shares sold - 14.6% profit

15/08/2016 20 Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc shares sold - 3.3% loss

23/08/2016 8 Adobe shares sold - 8.2% profit

2016 July Monthly update (+8,1% vs. 5,9%)

The fourth month of investing just passed.

July was terrific for investors. NASDAQ pumped 8% this month.

My portfolio was not such good, but still 6,9% of growth is more than expected. I'm really pleased of July.


One of my shares droped more than 10%. Monotype loses 12,4% so far. I am going to sell these shares. What is your opinion?


On the other hand both Tucows and Ulta Salon earns 28%. That's my shares! Never dreamed about such results.


2016 June Monthly update (+1,03% vs. -0,67%)

This month there was a huge drop on the market. Luckily things are going well back.


This time I hadn't traded any shares in June. I prefer long term investing and my share are doing fine so far. There was no need of change.


Monotype on 29th of June scheduled my first dividend in this battle. I hope there will be much more in the future.

Cutting losses

Weak Tesla's financial data and high risk from China. That's why this article created. I had to cut losses to protect portfolio from bigger losses.

05/05/2016 I sold 3 Tesla Motors shares with 11% of losses. The next day (06/05/2016) I sold all 7 YY Inc shares with 9.3% losses. Yesterday (09/05/2016) I lost 10,.2% after I sold all 5 Baidu shares.


I had to sell all of them to prevent my portfolio from further losses. I lost trust to these shares and I had to get rid of them.
