I started out with Investinstuff in March 2016, my focus was to provide useful and comprehensible Investment possibilities and also some education around this Investment topic. Early on I started with my earnings reports which were very important to me, on the one hand as USP – there are many websites that provide financial Information or also Investment possibilities but do not invest themselves – and on the other hand as proof of work so that every Investment can be traced back to the post it was first mentioned and also the returns are traceable.
Plans for 2017:
- Focus on a higher level of alternative Investments so we can reach at least 50% of year-end blog earnings with alternative Investments
- Focus on getting higher quantities of already “proven to be successful Investments” –> see Watchlist (http://www.investinstuff.com/2016/05/22/watchlist-profitable-investments/)
- Start to get into different types of alternative Investments e.g. fine wine, watches, cars, art – basically goods that also allow higher nominal returns but of course with higher amount of employed capital
- Starting to provide at least monthly email Newsletter
Statistics for 2016:
In the last 10 month, I was able to generate a return on capital employed of 3,06% for every month which is a nominal profit of 220,3 EUR each month at an average capital employed of around 6.400 EUR.
The maximum capital employed was at a level of around 8.700 EUR which gives us the calculated return on Investment of 25,42% or as nominal value 2.202,5 EUR. As alternative investments and common financial investments cannot be bundled in one brokerage depot I assumed a generic depot size of 10.000 EUR which gives us still a very nice profit of 22,03% on return. The mentioned return is split at ~34% (743 EUR) with alternative Investments and ~66% (1.460 EUR) with other mostly financial Investments.
