Long time TD reader and Money Board fan....here's mine below for the year:

Personal Rate of Return from 01/01/2012 to 12/31/2012 is 21.1%

All with Fidelity - it was a good year in my 401K (above) and matched that growth in my stock portfolio as well led IBM, Apple, XOM and CVX.

Wow,

Was it market timing or long term investing in those core holdings?

13.6% but shifted some stuff around at the wrong time (buy high, sell low strategy)...hopefully some funds will pick up in 2013.

My ROR in my 401K this year was part of my long term aggressive growth strategy (I have not changed it much at all over the past 2.5 - 3 yrs). Outside of 2008/2009, I averaged just under 20% yty returns in my 401 K since 2004. I have no bonds or individual stocks in my 401K (those are in my personal and IRA accts) - rather I have a choice mixture of domestic and international growth MF's mixed with large cap based funds (60% or so) then the rest with Mid-Cap (some small-cap) and foreign real estate MF's.

Additionally I've been focusing on "smart" old school buy/hold stocks (see Warren Buffett) that are large stable companies with strong fundamentals at cheap prices - see IBM, Apple (prior to mid-pt 2012), XOM, CVX, Coke and other large/fast growing IT and Healthcare companies. Since I'm 5 months into my International EMBA (@ UNC), I'm also being exposed to a number of other growth oppty's which I plan on taking advantage of in 2013 and beyond (bio-tech, Big Agriculture, small finance).

My background: I'm 31 and been working for a Fort. 15 company for 8 yrs out of LSU. Oh, and I'm a big Money Board lurker and enjoy reading all of you guys' posts - good, bad and the ugly. ;)
