Day 140: Where can you get 20%?


The Mother's Little Helper portfolio was up +0.95% today for a gain of +6,644.20. Overall gain to date: +$119,243.73 (+20.42%). According to CNN Money the S&P 500 is up +7.30% Year To Date (http://money.cnn.com/data/markets/sandp/).

I love those 20% coupons that Bed Bath & Beyond sends me. For Mother's Day I got a 20% discount from Harry & David's but I couldn't bring myself to use it - I just felt cheap. If you pay off a credit card with a 20% rate that's the same as earning 20% on your money.

The Mother's Little Helper Portfolio cleared a psychological milestone today as the YTD overall return rose above 20% to settle at +20.42% at the close.

Investors seem less and less concerned about geopolitical risks, a dismal economic report from China and other issues like the wannacrypt global cyber-attack, while home builder sentiment is upbeat and crude oil prices jumped as optimism over production cuts from Russia and Saudi Arabia appear to be getting extended.

Stay Invested,
