Mine's doing pretty well actually...I'm happy with it's performance. Of course, part of that could be because my company has a great matching percentage but I'm not complaining either way

I'm up 7.5% for the year so far but that does include my contributions too.

8.5 mostly oil related and REIT's and basic materials.

Mine's up 4% this month. I just switched a good chunk to T Rowe Price Science and Technology.

I've been flipping company stock the old fashioned way.....buy low sell high....usually on a 10% price swing.

I've also employeed a simple method to do it. 10% rise, sell some....another 10% rise, sell some more. On the down side, 10% fall....buy some, another 10% fall buy some more.

I'm not a financial genius by any stretch but it seems to be demonstrating gains.

update: $2.00+ rise in company stock after good earnings rpt & forecast/guidence upward. I'm thinkin' it is time to retire....401k up 19.2% ytd

"Personal Rate of Return from 01/01/2005 to 07/29/2005 is 7.8% "

Well, beats the hell out of losin money anyways.

1 year personal rate of return: 13.1
3 year: 12.3
5 year: 4.5

Last twelve months: a littleover 22%. If I would've stayed with small caps only I'd be at 27%. Last year wasn't too shabby either.

Up 2% for the year. Asset allocation was (roughly) 20% bond fund, 20% company stock and the rest in S&P500 Index fund. I re-jiggered it earlier this week so that I am 25% bond fund and 75% aggressive mix large cap equity fund.

5.6% Since January 1st; 22.7% in the last year. I'm 100% in stock funds, with about 1/3 each in international, S&P 500, and a mid-cap fund, all index funds, of course. So far it looks like 2004 was a much better year for performance, but I'm in no position to complain.

going great, i think.

Just about a 301(k).

My 401k at work is through fidelity and we get seriously crappy choices. This is reflected in my poor PRR of 4.4% for fidelity assets (thank goodness their international fund is doing very well or I'd probably be underwater. )

Luckily I've also got about the same amount in other retirement funds (SEP-IRA,IRA,Roth) with Vanguard and I'm doing much better there. This was primarily due to early investments in energy over 14 months ago. My PRR with vanguard assets is 16.3%.

Everything is in funds with both companies as I just don't have the time to keep on top of stocks. If things keep going to plan I should be able to retire comfortably at 50 with the house paid off and a nice egg in the bank.
We'll see if my new son (2 weeks old!) can avoid wrecking that for me!
