Well the end of the year is fast approaching and a new one is about to begin. Have you achieved your goals for 2005? I am satisfied with both my financial and non-financial goals. I have not purchased any property this year, however, I have added to my share portfolio. As for 2006, well, I can't wait to hook into it. Over many years I have tried just about every type of share/option investing/trading...and I find that I tend to gravitate back to value investing for the long term. I increasingly find that waiting patiently for good companies to suffer an irrational share price drop usually brings about a good buying opportunity. I aim to continue this investing philosophy throughout 2006. Additionally, I will be starting to take a serious look into the property arena again. What are your financial goals for the upcoming year? BTW, apologies to John Lennon for the subject title.
