    Without further ado, drum roll please. . . . . .

    Winner for 2018 yearly comp is: Robusta
    2nd: explod
    3rd: Knobby22

    I've added the divs paid throughout 2018 to the EOY prices and fortunately the order wasn't changed.
    It did bring 2nd/3rd closer.

    Would the winners please check the results as I've manually added >200 prices to the comp spreadsheet and got the divs from the asx webpage.

    As for the rest of us, only 7 of 36 ended up with a profit.

    Thank you so much, @peter2 as always you do a stellar job!

    Well done robusta, explod and Knobby22!

    I guess this is the appropriate place to whinge. Seems like only a couple months ago all mine bar KCN were in profit. KCN's 50% loss meant for a pretty average (but still positive) result. The end of the year slaughtered me!
    Whinge over, lol

    Well it was an interesting year - thanks everyone! :)

    Yes the EOY selloff thumped us all except for robusta and explod.
    Notice how the EOY rally in gold helped explod's performance.

    Notes: I have to "feel" for bigdog who led for 8 consecutive months.
    explod's year would have been better if today's news re PLS was announced a few days earlier.

    Here are the equity curves for all those that ended the year in profit and a few that had at least +20% sometime throughout the year.

    These curves certainly show how the market selloff impacted our portfolios and how the gold rally helped the "gold bug".
