|I almost don't want to write a comment for this month but I feel like the numbers are clearly super strange.|
The big inflow for the month was around 1m USD which came as a result of my mom's apartment being sold. The proceeds were given to the kids which I used to pay down the money I owed for my home. Also, I am realizing because of the way I copied the data for here from my spreadsheet and how data was stored in my spreadsheet, instead of being under "Home Mortgage", the money I owed for my apartment has been categorized under "Other Debt"
Without this, it would have still been an amazing month for both bonds and stocks. A fair number of dividends and semi-annual coupons were also paid this month resulting in the high cash figure.
The embarrassing part: With the month being both flush with cash personally yet stressful in the business, I took a weekend to escape to the casinos. Gambling is something I'm not too proud of but has been an escape of mine for some while. Despite my worst instincts, I managed to quit while I was ahead to enjoy the rest of the trip. For my type of betting and games, I experienced an 86th percentile trip (if i tried the same trip again with the same amount of money 100 times, 86 of those times I would leave with less money than this), so that was really good. It further pushed cash way up this month.
I have a promotional time deposit at 5% that I can park up to 250k in for a month that I'll probably do for a month. After that month I'll either pay down some of my "Other Debts" or purchase more IG bonds at around 4% yield. (My other debt cost of borrowing is around 1.7% a year right now)
