For all you folks with 401(k)s, what was you rate of return for 2012?

14.1% here.. basically tracked the S&P.

Fucking loving BAC, WY and AIG.... 120%, 50% and 45%.... time for a new car.

Yup.. 14%. Don't worry though. I'm down 20% on AAPL frown.gif

I wish I could free up some capital to buy a ton of RIMM..

We're good then. I'm up 143% on AAPL with 50% of my bankroll stuck in. I'll spot you that 7% nod[1].gif

Yo boys, check out MAPP for April...

14.47% for me although I haven't checked to see what exactly they are doing to calculate that rate of return since you have have to deal with contributions coming in and my contributions this year were 70% of the 1/1/12 balance (3rd full year in the plan coupled with higher wages).

Not sure on my Roth IRA...TD Ameritrade didn't seem to do a good job carrying over data from Thinkorswim when they finalized the acquisition. As such, things like cost basis are fucked up (it thinks I have made 253.19% return on TRREX since the cost is only recorded as purchases I have made since the acquisition) and I am not going to be bothered with going back to the records and computing it myself.

Ya, they have a drug pending approval. The FDA has the 2nd review set for Apr 15

BTW, I like to use this for trolling pharma approvals:

EDIT:

You guys forced me to go and look, in fact my return last year was 11% not 7. Phew. I still got outplayed but didn't think it was a blowout. I do more dividend/bond funds than most people do so I expect to lag on + years.

My IRA was going to be huge until AAPL dropped. I was at 35% when it hit 700. Need to calculate it but I think I finished at 25% or so.

This was a good year. I think '13 should be strong.

Well I think we are also both younger than you. I have a token 5% in a total return bond fund (I also have 10% in a high yield bond fund...but junk bonds are a different story).

What are you guys at as far as contributions? I'm at 11% of pre-tax (which is beyond my employer match cutoff) as well as maxing out the Roth IRA.

However, the Roth contribution limit is static which has the effect of every year, a lower % of income goes into the retirement accounts so maybe I should bump the 401k % at some point. Also, things like 401k contributions help keep you eligible for the Roth...you can make big pre-tax contributions to bring your taxable gross below the income limit (otherwise this year is probably the last year I can use a Roth).

Well done fellas. I'm right there with you, except in one account which is heavy in high grade bonds.

I max 401k and 5k IRA. I don't have a ROTH. I have a side business as well where I can contribute up to 25% of the business income into a SEP IRA.

Oh yeah...forgot there was a 401k max. Well, I guess at that point I will finally have to start using fully taxable investment accounts.
post #3045 of 4888
I'm only contributing 7%, which is the max my employer matches, dollar for dollar. I would contribute more, but I want more cash to spend. At my salary level, maxing out my 401k would sting a bit..
