Morning Henry,

Today could be the day…come on giddy up!!

It’s a great achievement being able to double your money, congrats.

From my perspective it has been a fantastic learning experience watching you manage your portfolio, when you buy, when you sell and understanding your thought process and how you connect the dots.

How you balance and grow your portfolio…

Even just dealing in percentages rather than dollar values has helped my thinking and emotions around my own decision making.

All this has been invaluable guidance to me and shown me a way to manage my own portfolio that probably would have taken years to learn on my own and helped me build my confidence and I feel I make better decisions because of what I have learnt.

So Thanks and once again Congratulations!!

Regards,

Hi MT,

Many thanks for your fabulous work. I’m grateful to have found MT as I feel I’ve learned so much from reading your column and listening to your podcasts. After having a bad experience with a broker who was managing my SMSF, I’ve taken it over myself, figuring that I can pay myself to lose money instead of paying them! Actually since reading MT I haven’t been losing money, and my fees are quite reasonable!

Many thanks again.

Hi Marcus and Team,

It really does feel like being part of an investing family.

I’m tracking well and enjoying being a member (and genuinely cared about by the team!), although I’m not quite as active as I used to be in terms of reading everything you make available. Looking after three kids as a home dad sees to that 🙂

That said, retail investing is my job now and has been since I joined. Getting out of my commercial management role in the corporate world and doing this instead has been brilliant, and some of your philosophies and viewpoints have helped influence my approach massively.

Thank you MT team… once again, your Newsletter & candid assessments have more than paid for the ‘cost’ of subscription. Our Super Fund sold BHP today, 2 parcels bought in April & May 2020. ‘Risk’ is up there, as noted by MT today – we were sitting on 45% gain. Why sit like a chook on an egg?  Inertia!  Capital Gain plus 2 cash dividends & imputation credits have given us in total a 55.7% gain in about a year. Enough to pay 2x annual Term Life policies for 2 of our 4 Fund members, plus the Fine Art Insurance renewal, with some left over & original capital back in the bank.  A self-funded retirement means having funds at the right time to pay regular expenses. Your Newsletter helps us do that. Thank you SO MUCH.

Hi Henry,

I just wanted to say another thank you. It’s a year today since I began investing and my results are way beyond the wildest expectations I had when I envisaged a year ago where I hoped to be today. A lot of that is down to you and your small cap section of marcustoday. I have a very different investing strategy to the one I started out with and small caps are a major part of it.

I don’t know whether many people ever tell you how they go but from a good size investment amount that my wife agreed to trust me with (!), I’m 133.8% to the good (as of CoB yesterday). It hit as high as 155% last week but RNU has had an expected pullback I elected not to risk selling out of, rightly or wrongly, and that is my biggest holding.

Biggest winners: RNU, DW8, FYI, LKE.

Warm regards, and keep up the inspiring work!

What a ripper of a newsletter today after only 1 day back congratulations

Congratulations to everyone who made this possible, I’m sure it took a lot of hard work.

I’m glad I renewed my subscription.

I would like to acknowledge the MT team and members of this group. It is because of you that I get to feel like a very smart investor who has done very well lately. Despite the old adage that a rising tide lifts all boats, if it wasn’t for my investment in becoming an MT member, I would not be looking back on the last 3-6 months with as much pleasure as I am now (from an investment perspective of course – Covid has been a real s***show). Thank you.

Being a part of this group has made my transition into investing in equities sustainable and enjoyable. It’s good to feel a part of something bigger and have the support, feedback and insight, though I am also growing in confidence, enjoy learning and am developing my own approach over time.
Thanks everyone 😊

I am what I would describe as an accidental investor and without his [Henry] calm and steady demeanor coming down the Facebook airwaves everyday during a very difficult lockdown in Malaysia I don’t think I would have managed to stay focused and I certainly wouldn’t have been able to pay my kids school fees …without his ‘general advice’. So please tell him he’s a real Hero to me and I will continue to hang around Henry’s part of the Newsletter for some time to come.

Really appreciate your transparent, candid, no marketing nonsense commentary.

A month ago I didn’t know how I was going to face my accountant this year … and now my SMSF is almost back to pre-Corona levels.
