Counting Interests vs. Counting Dividends???


Counting interests is low but steady steady!

Counting more dividends through re-investing or investing more saving. It may be shiok during rising market but not exactly that shiok when our portfolio value is falling lower and lower. 

Okay. Never mind! We can self-deceive and don't think too much.  

Don't measure. Don't track. Thing will be alright soon. Right?

This is World of Difference! Even some investment and financial bloggers also confused with compound interests and investment return.

  1. Hi CW8888,

    This might just be a function of the size of the investment portfolio.

    My guess is that as you scale from a four figure portfolio in 2000 to a seven figure portfolio in 2015, chances are that your XIRR is dropping.

    Cheers
