Last quarter, almost all of my investments were experiencing positive performance. Three months can make a big difference. My investments tell a different story today.
One thing has not changed since last quarter: my company stock continues to do well, even when the broader stock market is in decline. This was not my best performing investment over the first half of the year, however. That acknowledgment belongs to a small investment I made several years ago in Akamai (AKAM) with free money earned from a bonus for opening an account with ShareBuilder. Overall, while the stock has seen good performance for the year, it has eked out only a $3 profit since the time I opened the investment.
Here are my investment account balances and performance numbers as of the end of March 2010. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments.
