    I hope you do well this year Jason. I still think you are one of the most knowledgeable people on this site.
    Is today Saturday again?

    Are you taking under/over bets?

    I'm along the lines with Scout333 in one of the first posts, 12% (1% a month).

    I'm still new to the TSP club, so while learning the ropes, that's the lowest I want this year. Anything over that will be a very welcome bonus and make me a happy investor.

    My goal is to outperform the best performing fund. Originally I started following this site because I wanted to beat the G fund. Now with this community and what I've learned since then, I am confident I can consistently beat C and S (or F/G in a down year). I won't complain if I make money this year, but my goal is to do better than 'buy and hold.'

    Wow... I guess you have to dream big.

    I'm retired and taking payments vis IRS 72t rules. A realistic goal. A percentage higher than my withdrawal plus inflation. Anyway, anything over 5% is a positive. 10% would be awesome!

    I want to have at least a point or two edge on the L2030 - which is the super science driven allocation my betters feel I should be invested in.

    After that, I would love to beat the S&P500 - but not with the risk of the S&P500. I have never lost anything close to some of the dumps in the S&P500 and I want to keep it that way...

    This year feels like a 6%er in the S&P500...
    Lookin' up at the 'G Fund'!!!

    Buy the C/S now and you'll already have a nice little lead on them.

    I am due for another big year, probably how everyone else feels.

    I stick my neck out for 15%, but I am shooting for 2 - 2 1/2% per month putting me about 25%.

    I lost touch of that goal last year on month three when I had to start traveling again and the market became volatile. Well see what happens I guess !!

    goal is 20%, happy with +10%
    CURRENT ALLOCATION = 100% S
