February wasn’t as nice to me as January was, particularly thanks to the stock market issues in the last days of the month. So while overall I’m only up 3.66% in the last month, my non-invested accounts are up 7.23%.
Here are some notes. I’m now including a line for my company stock purchase plan to separate it from my brokerage investments. The amount in the plan currently has not been invested yet. It will remain cash until March 31, at which point I’ll be able to purchase stock at 15% below the lesser of the January 1 or March 31 price of the company stock. I plan on selling this stock at the first point I can, but I have to wait for an open trading window.
Take a look at the numbers before I get to the rest of the notes.
As always, the credit card account is simply an “current accounts payable” account. That balance will be paid in full towards the end of the month, by which time I will have accrued more regular expenses on the card. I like this credit card because every once in a while they send a rebate check. I happened to receive one this month, and I’ll share the details in my income and expense report, which will be posted shortly.
As time passes, I am still slowly paying off my debt. My car loan at 2% should be completely paid off in September. The student loan will take some more time. I could pay a good portion of it off immediately, but I want to keep my cash around as I am looking into buying a condominium later this year.
I’ll get around to writing about my income and expenses after I have dinner.
