However, year-to-date, my passive income is still up 10.5% compared to the first 7 months of 2019.
Year-to-date, my total returns are 4.82%.
Another month, another step towards financial freedom.
July was a wonderful month for the broader markets. The S&P 500 was up roughly 5.5% as the COVID-19 recovery rally continues.
My personal portfolio saw gains of roughly 4.6% during the month, showing a bit of short-term underperformance.
However, I never get upset about such short-term price movement. Thus far, year-to-date, my portfolio's value has increased by 4.82%, which is still outpacing the YTD returns of 2.30% returns that the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) has generated. I do hope to beat the market every year on an annual basis, so here's to hoping that I can maintain this lead throughout the remainder of the year.
