5 Years of Stock Investing



๐Ÿฅณ Last week, I celebrated my fifth year as an investor and my fifth on eToro. In these 5 years, the S&P 500 $SPX500 returned 89% while my portfolio returned 580%. I was able to ๐™—๐™š๐™–๐™ฉ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ข๐™–๐™ง๐™ ๐™š๐™ฉ๐™จ ๐™—๐™ฎ ๐Ÿฒ.๐Ÿฑ๐™“ ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐Ÿฑ ๐™ฎ๐™š๐™–๐™ง๐™จ, and I'm currently the Popular Investor with the best 2 year and 1 year returns. Even though it looks great, it is not that simple. At some points, I was down 30% when I first started. I've not gone through a bear market yet and I cannot really call myself a good investor before that. However, I've learned a lot during these 5 years.


๐Ÿ’ฐ The main reason why I started investing was not actually to invest but to trade to solve my money troubles. I started with $100 on eToro which was half my monthly income. I opened a highly leveraged trade in oil $OIL and made $24. I thought that this game was easy but the next day, I lost $56. In the first six months of trading, I lost nearly $700 on $2000 invested. That's when I decided to ๐™—๐™š๐™˜๐™ค๐™ข๐™š ๐™– ๐™ซ๐™–๐™ก๐™ช๐™š ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ซ๐™š๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ง. Today, I'm one of the approved value investors on eToro. As a Value investor, My returns improved as I've returned 58% per year or 850% in 4.5 years.


โœ๏ธ I was always sharing my analyses (even though they were not as good as today) and eventually, I got copiers as my stats improved and ๐™„ ๐™—๐™š๐™˜๐™–๐™ข๐™š ๐™– ๐™‹๐™ค๐™ฅ๐™ช๐™ก๐™–๐™ง ๐™„๐™ฃ๐™ซ๐™š๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ค๐™ง. At some points, I decided not to do a Masters' Degree in Theoretical Physics and focus on investing.


โ™Ÿ๏ธ I still had some problems with my portfolio, I had too many stocks, at some points I had 32 and all of them were correlated with each other and with the market. Apple $AAPL was over 20% of my portfolio. I decided to ๐™›๐™ค๐™˜๐™ช๐™จ ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™–๐™™ ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™จ๐™ข๐™–๐™ก๐™ก๐™š๐™ง ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ข๐™ฅ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™š๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™ก๐™ค๐™ฌ๐™š๐™ง ๐™˜๐™ค๐™ง๐™ง๐™š๐™ก๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™จ ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ข๐™–๐™ง๐™ ๐™š๐™ฉ ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™š๐™–๐™˜๐™ ๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ง. I took profits on Apple and invested in Skyworks Solutions $SWKS instead. Gradually, I started investing in special situations, doing arbitrage, I invested in a bankrupt company until I saw the greatest investment ever, GameStop $GME . The stock was a cigar butt stock on a brink of a short squeeze and nobody was talking about it.


๐Ÿ’ธ So far this year, I've made 170%. To go from 170% to 200%, I need only 11%. That's the power of compound interest. For compound interest to work, we need to ๐™›๐™ค๐™˜๐™ช๐™จ ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ก๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™œ-๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง๐™ข.
