NOTE: The values reflected above exclude investments in several tax-efficient accounts for which I do not disclose details.
The past several weeks have provided investors with opportunities to acquire shares in high-quality companies at valuations not witnessed for quite some time. Although I strongly suspect the broad market weakness shall persist for several more months, I can not predict the behaviour of stock prices over the short term. Knowing this, I continue to invest with the long term in mind and am adding to several existing positions. While the value of each purchase is relatively modest, I am comfortable with the cumulative value of my purchases.
I wish you much success on your journey to financial freedom.
