Today is Friday. That means it's time to report on my progress with the Million Dollar Challenge.
I've moved up from last week. Then I was in the top 41% with a portfolio value of $1,028,941.17. Today, I'm in the top 32% and rank 149,124th with a portfolio value of $1,029,803.71. My money value only went up less than $1,000, I guess that means several other people did worse than I. If I were playing against the celebrities, I would be in fourth place.
I've gotten more aggressive by buying 1000 shares of companies, and selling when I have a decent paper profit. I've even managed to answer some of the bonus questions to add to my portfolio value.
Tiffany gave me my best profit. I always say, if you can't afford to shop at Tiffany, buy the company's stock. I've made a total profit of over $10,000 so far in spite of the fact that I've had a busy week and couldn't watch the market more closely. Maybe this week will be better.
My goal for next week is to move up to the top 28% and increase the value of my portfolio to $1,033,500.50. Let's see if I can do it.
