Well now that we are happily well into 2015, let's take a look at what happened in 2014. How did you do overall? What were your biggest successes or worst losses? Did you learn something from them? Did you meet your goals for the year? I'm fairly satisfied with my 2014. My European portfolio took a few nasty hits... though it's not a big wonder since I did exceptionally well the year before mainly due to one volatile stock gaining huge percentages. I managed to sell part of them in time, but kept some. For my north american portfolio... it was actually the first full year and I'm quite pleased with the results. Slow but solid growth in most of the companies which I own... quite a few of them obviously surpassing my expectations. A couple of dark clouds in there... mainly Ubiquity and Norther Properties REIT but I learned a thing or two from these events and I still see both of them as worth keeping in the long run. I did reach my goal of X amount of dividends during the year, though I wasn't too far ahead of my objectives.
