Ok. This is some advise just for everyone else besides me. Don't check your mutual fund gains every day only look at 3 to 5 year performance.
Of course I never do that. I personally like to look every day just so I can feel that pain and guilt for making the wrong investment changes.
Anyway, so I'm finally happy with a day's returns. I want to capture it here so I can feel good. Observe the following gains:
A while ago, after Artisan went up 10% I sold a bunch and bought Dodge. Then Artisan went up 10 more percent and Dodge went up like 1. I has been hard, since I am obsessed with watching the totals every week, to not buy Artisan back.
Well look at the chart. Notice how Dodge & Cox has gone up while Artisan Mid Cap has gone down 1%? Take that Artisan, you volatile pile of junk. I will not surrender to you. I will not come back and buy you just because you are doing well now. I am better than you. I will not be controlled!
