I’m Increasing my Monthly Investment: 33% Club


This article was posted on Tuesday, 16:36, UTC.

Today I transferred 40 000 NOK (5 000 USD) to my broker platform to invest in a new asset for September as a part of the 33% Club. My current investments have done fine, but I saw a drawdown for “Funcom” which is now in minus 1 329 NOK. My Norsk Hydro investment has given a 12,30% return which is quite staggering. I read Funcom’s latest financial report, that you can find here, which was a good read:

1H17 is the most profitable half-year period ever in Funcom’s history.

However, they have exercised options and there are some concerns regarding their ongoing profitability if the sales decline of e.g. Conan Exiles. This stock is a small cap stock and is volatile. I’m therefore unsure if I want to keep investing in Funcom or if I actually want to sell with a loss and find another asset to invest in. Your comments might sway me in the right direction.

I have not found a new asset I want to invest in just yet, but I’ll write a new post once I do and when I have invested the new 40 000 NOK that I transferred today. I can reveal that I’m looking into other gaming companies and Lithium based companies.

    Instead of picking the right winner stock, I would invest some time in this here: https://www.ifa.com/indexfundsthemovie/

    I have the conviction the stock picking part is pure chance in almost perfectly efficient markets. Just if you have additional inside information but that is illegal in most situations.

      You are totally correct. I do want to invest in index funds, but I’m waiting until we have a new recession to find a good entry point. I believe most indexes are overvalued at the time being.

    If we’re correcting or even crashing again, small caps like the suggested one tend to be hit hardest. As well, market timing I believe is another illusion in stock markets. I personally feel we’re overvalued as well but why not another leg up of 40% and correct from there 20%? Most said the same thing and held back at the beginning of the year, see where we are now… Just my 5 cents, best to act like a computer and simply rebalance on a regular basis – emotions aside…
