Portfolio performance 2017

It’s the time of the year to fill out the tax forms.

2017 was the second full-year of the bargain hunting strategy.  The total return for the portfolio was 18.8 %. This return includes fees, FX and taxes (transaction taxes and realized capital gains). The average share return was 23.9 %, which may interest anyone considering the NCAV/Market cap as a key ratio.

Unfortunately, I have stepped on a mine. Swing Media is trading halted and the situation smells bad. Either due to poor management or some shenanigans the company is facing bankruptcy due to liquidity problems. I’ve taken the conservative stand and marked it to zero value. Maybe I’ll write some more on the lessons learned later.
