How My Stocks are Faring

In short… not so well.

In long… ignoring the $7500 I’ve “lost” in my Roth and Vanguard index funds, I’ve lost another $1051.99 thus far. I have invested in 11 different stocks and ETFs in my Sharebuilder account ranging the gamut from a gold index to a natural foods supermarket, and everything in between. Not one of them is in the “green.”

The best performing is my gold ETF (GLD), which is down $10.95 on a $533 investment. Not bad, but it’s also not making money.

Everything else is doing really shitty.

Here’s my investment list, and losses:

Comverge (COMV) – Invested $205.51 thus far, it’s currently worth $115.96 (loss $89.55)
Wisdomtree India Earnings (EPI) – Invested $482.59, now $262.56 (loss: $220.03)
iShares Brazil Index (EWZ) – invested $251.72, now $104.30, (loss: $147.42)
SPDR Gold Trust (GLD) – invested $533.67, now $522.72, (loss: $10.95)
iShares Medical Devices (IHI) – invested $150 recently, now $146.58 (loss $3.42)
Market Vectors Coal ETF (KOL) – invested $120.26, now $32.76 (loss $87.50)
McDonalds Corp (MCD) – invested $296.74, now $273.41 (loss $23.33)
Powershares Global Clean Enegry – invested $462.31, now $195.88 (loss $266.43)
Procter & Gamble – invested 100.00, now $89.03 (loss $10.87)
Whole Foods Market (WFMI) – invested $121.23, now $36.33 (loss $84.90)
Financial Select Sector (XLF) – invested $148.29, now $41.20 (loss $107.09)

For a grand total of…

-$1051,59.

or -36.61% of my total investment.

For what it’s worth, I’ve invested $14,950.00 into my Roth IRA and Vanguard Index Funds, and I’m currently down $6849.33 on that account, or 45%.

So even though my stock picks are doing crappy, they’re still doing better than my basic index funds for now. I wonder how they’ll all look in a year from now.
