ECINYA has long believed that putting one's money where one's mouth is can be a useful aid/guide to helping each subscriber analyse their own approach to investing & occasional trading. Our personal benchmarks are: absolute performance (make a profit), double-digit returns, out-perform the All Ordinaries index by 400 basis points (4 percentage points), times frame weekly, annually, 3 and 5 years.
Sam Goldwyn said: "Verbal promises aren't worth the paper they're written on." In similar vein, ECINYA agrees with Sam.
The ECINYA portfolios
- CACTUS - active value management - short (1 week to 6 months) to medium (up to 18 months), limit 30 stocks
- DAFFODILS & ROSES began on 5 May 2011 and wil be a relatively passive medium (3 months to 2 years) term account, but always subject to market context.
BOTH FUNDS have now been re-configured to start at 1 July 2012 as we consider a new market cycle will begin in the resaobaly foreseeable future. With DAFR we have also now included several stocks that that had been acquired before 5 May 2011.
