2012 Performance of the Highly Diversified ETF Portfolio

For the year 2012, our diversified sample portfolio returned 15.23%, a very respectable performance for a low cost, passive portfolio. Given the volatility and continued economic uncertainty and low-growth environments both in the US and abroad, investors should be satisfied with this level of return in a moderate risk portfolio.


  1. Many are on the sidelines missing these returns!

    1. My biggest regret over the past 4 years was not having the guts to commit more money to stocks when things looked the bleakest in 2008 and 2009. I didn't sell anything during the downturn, unlike many of my friends and I've more than recovered from any losses incurred during that crisis.

  2. I like the narrow sector exchange traded funds best. You can focus on and take advantage of a sector or even a single counrty thats had a huge decline.
