- New tax year and I have already loaded another R33k into my tax-free account and will be buying as per our high risk model portfolio.
- The annual Buffett letter was published last weekend. Always good reading, I especially like his comments on buying assets with shares (and hence paying a fortune). He also updates on his bet on the VOO vs. hedge funds (spoiler, VOO wining by a mile). The AGM will be webcast here on 6 May.
- We update the momentum portfolio stocks for 2017/8. Last years return was -5.2% after all costs and behind the benchmark so disappointing. I am NOT re-entering the portfolio this year for two reasons. Too much stuff and the ABSA NFEMOM ETF now uses my methodology and is more tax efficient.
