February 2007 Net Worth Update (-$1,351)

My streak of 24 monthly net worth gains has come to an end. My net worth declined -$1,351 this month. Its my first monthly net worth loss since Jan 2005 when my net worth declined -$1,903. The bulk of the decline this month was the result of a significant decline in my employer's stock price (IBM).

2M, you've had a great run. A 0.41% total setback on the heels of the worst week for the stock market in 4 years is really not that bad when you put it in perspective. Looks like you're doing great.

Very good point! Im not too beat up about it - too much other stuff going on even think about it really.

Dear 2M,
I am impressed by your ability to track the net worth to such a great detail, especially month-to-month changes. What kind of system you use to track your assets/liabilities? I am a novice and hope to learn on how you are able to assimilate disparate financial data and show in a meaning full way. Any tips will be helpful.

I was perusing some of your earlier posts, and noted that you have achieved an incredible savings rate, typically 50%. Well done. This explains the hefty monthly investments (e.g. $2000 Vanguard).

I'm afraid that my savings rate excluding the home principle payments would be a fairly dismal 9%, whereas if I include the home equity we bring that number up to around 43%. Yes, this indicates we bought WAY too much house. But 50% is something to strive for--

I appreciate your method of calculating this, as well.

Ah, Mr. 2 million man, I've been reading your posts and I have to hold myself back from laughing. Are you serious? Do you actually give out advice? Do people really listen to you?
Your debt ratio is 50%. You have $76K in savings but $64K in credit card debt? You have a terrible FICO score (600's are bad) and did some serious damage to your credit score with these zero credit cards. You only have $43K equity in 1st home and $24K in 2nd home. Are you for real? Has someone sued you yet?
You should seek out a reputable financial advisor as fast as possible. If you don't, you are going to find yourself in deep doo doo.
