How Timing and These 3 Value Metrics Can Boost Your Portfolio

Carl Lewis, a former nine gold medal-winning Olympian, once said "Life is about timing." For value investors, timing plays an essential role in the value investing methodology. There's the element of patience that every value investor needs to learn, the willpower not to rush into seemingly appealing yet undeniably risky investments.

Then there's the knowledge and mastery of timing that can boost a portfolio. By simply investing at the right point you can achieve 10x returns. It isn't always easy to learn, but it's a valuable skill every value investor should practice early on to see their portfolios stay healthy and profitable.

#21 Little Acorns: 77% up after 3 years

When I set up my portfolio on 14th November 2014, who could have predicted the three years that were to come? Brexit, the Japanese recessions, Trump’s unprecedented presidency and now the fall of Mugabe, to name a few. Would I have chosen that moment to become a value investor had I known what lay ahead? Maybe not. With the benefit of hindsight I can see what a mistake that would have been.

#20 Little Acorns: Portfolio 70% Up and Tops $200K

My Little Acorns are 70% bigger than they were when I ‘planted’ them and overall portfolio value has risen above $200,000. I’ve also sold another stock with 180% returns, after STRIDE spotted potential financial weakness in this long-term winner that I would have missed.

#19 Little Acorns: 63.2% up and $18,826 Realised Gains

I’m happy to say I’ve been much more attentive to my Little Acorns portfolio since my last post. System 1 became a sell, and I’ve bought four new stocks, bringing my total slices to 33. And, thanks to my $18k realised gains, I still have $30k in cash.

I have been so busy with my consultancy work lately that I haven’t been into STRIDE for months. I’ve been checking my emails every day to make sure none of my stocks turned red for sell, but that is all the portfolio management I’ve done.
