Lending Club Goal 2013 Completed!

Lending Club Goal 2013 Completed!

I would like to announce that I completed my first goal I set for 2013 and that was to reach 14% annual return rate. I am very happy about it, because with this rate of return, my investment will double every 5 years!

My other goals are going well too. It looks like I under-sized my goals and was too generous. But that is OK. If I meet all my goals prematurely I will adjust them for the rest of the year.

It is amazing to see this principle played out over and over again in our lives. If you are generous even when you have little, God seems to bless your finances to be able to do more than most who have more money than you.

New Trade – Safeway Inc. (SWY) put selling

New Trade - Safeway Inc. (SWY) put selling

I was searching for stocks which I can buy, but couldn’t find anything at a decent price. Everything I was interested in is so elevated that I wasn’t comfortable buying at the current price.

So I was thinking that the only way I would be willing to do is to sell a longer term put option. A reason for longer term put would be that I am expecting a correction in price. If I will be assigned, I do not want to be assigned when the price of the stock gets too low. Longer term put should get me thru a potential market correction.

Stocks which sparked my attention for addition today

Stocks which sparked my attention for addition today

I typically add new stocks into my portfolio, when the overall portfolio value reaches a certain threshold (see here). Before that happens I accumulate the holdings I now hold based on their price action. At today’s high levels I am mostly waiting gor prices to drop. When the stock reverses for either a small or large correction, that is my time.

Do you pay your fair share?

Do you pay your fair share?

Imagine the following situation. You and your neighbor work hard. You both make let’s say $50,000 a year salary. You both are married, have a new-born child, nice decent house and a car. You happen to be colleagues from the same company which you started working for in about same time. You both take part at company’s 401k plan, you are both young and have a great and bright future in front of you.

How to Spot Bad Notes in Lending Club Before They Turn Bad – Part 1


Lending ClubSince a few months ago when I claimed that I had zero In Grace Period, Late, or Defaulted notes in my Lending Club account, I have started receiving emails from other investors whether I would be willing to share my strategy how I avoid the notes before they turn bad.

Originally I was just responding to those emails, but the number of them was growing so much that I made a decision to publish my strategy of managing Lending Club account.

Strategies to manage your money and reduce monthly outgoings

Strategies to manage your money and reduce monthly outgoings

This is a guest post by Julie Cheung. Julie is a freelance online marketer with a keen interest in business, investment and finance. She can be contacted via Twitter at @juliecheung or on LinkedIn.


Wouldn’t it be great if you could put a bit of cash aside every month to save for a rainy day? As the end of the financial year approaches, I’m sure you’ll have heard advertisements on the TV or radio telling you to make the most of your tax-free stocks and shares ISA or cash ISA. Somehow though, everyday life gets in the way of all good saving intentions, and rather than having a little bit left over to save, you’ve probably ended up going into your overdraft again or using your credit card a few too many times more than you would have liked to, am I right?

Trade adjustment – Lorillard, Inc. (LO) addition

Trade adjustment - Lorillard, Inc.  (LO) addition

Today I added 25 shares of Lorillard to my portfolio. The trade trigger was triggered and the order was executed. It seems that the selling hysteria of this stock over a potential menthol ban calmed down. Of course, it still may happen, but it may not as this issue was on the table a year ago and nothing happened. In my opinion such ban would have quite economical effect, mainly on the already tight federal budget. So banning this industry without prior thinking may have a huge impact. And that thinking can take quite a long time.
