This blog post contains parts of our first financial review of our investment recommendations at Welcome to the Decentralized portfolio our paid subscriber service..
A little back story for new readers;
We started the decentralized portfolio just a few months ago in August 2020, mainly as a result of friends consistently pushing us to make available our investment research.
(we think maybe our friends wanted to know what exactly we’ve been up to thats enabled us to lead life on our terms) and that’s fine with us.
But ultimately we thought they were on to something, so we decided to share our investment research through a subscription service to make it available to anyone who subscribes.
We even toyed with the idea of making this service free, but unfortunately data shows that typically information that’s paid for is valued more than free information, and we didn’t see the point in making an effort to do in-depth time consuming research and then to write up something that might only get your attention in passing and ultimately find its place in the trash along with everything else we all get bombarded with on a daily bases.
We want our subscribers to actually take the time to read through our research and take action on it, if it seems right for them.
So we charge a small annual subscription fee, mainly in the hope that our subscribers take their investments as seriously as we do.
Our research is based on companies we invest in ourselves, we won’t publish investment ideas that aren’t good enough for our money. we don’t think those ideas would be good enough for your money either.
And so here we are doing our first review of the first six months of this service from august 2020 until the end of January 2021. In the future we may decide to offer quarterly reports or something similar, but for now let’s review the first six months.
So how did all our positions do in our investments, let’s take a look;
Firstly, congratulations to all of our paid subscribers, we know it takes a lot of effort and trust to pay for a subscription service, read through all the info and take action, putting your hard earned money into anything with some risk attached is not a decision to be taken lightly, it’s stressful! so thanks to all of you for committing to our service, we think it’s been well worth it so far!
(ok it’s s still a new service so there’s only a few of you, but still, we are very happy with the last six months and knowing that if you, our subscribers keep making superior gains, our membership will grow over time)
For those that took the time to follow our recommendations at the time we made them and kept uniform position sizes, congratulations on your outstanding gains! your portfolios are up by an average gain of 154% in six months !!!!
We think 2021 is going to be a very exciting year and we hope we can continue to deliver outsized gains into the future.
To be fair to our paid subscribers we can’t reveal the exact investments we recommended to them, but we can say this;
Over the course of six months, we recommended a total of 11 investments,
We had 7 recommendations in the natural resource sector and 4 recommendations in the technology sector.
Out of the 11 positions, our worst performing recommendation was -21% and our best performing recommendation was +700%
And the average gain over all 11 positions was 154% all within less than a six month time frame,
And that’s not all; each of the positions we recommended is still growing and has a lot more upside to come, we’re not selling yet in other words, and we’re starting to add new recommendations going further into 2021, the first of which went live a few weeks ago.
We always suggest allocating uniform position sizes, meaning that, whatever capital you had available to allocate for investing should be split evenly throughout the recommendations, and not on cherry picking one or two positions, uniform position sizes help create diversified spread and help mitigate risk.
It’s been an incredible six months for our subscribers at Decentralised Portfolio, and I can’t wait to see how things pan out in 2021!
