A 401k adventure

July 24th, 2017 at 03:29 pm

For the financial voyeurs out there Stick Out Tongue I was comparing year to year returns and thought this looks interesting.

2012 - Salary was 34k at the time and contribution was about 10%. I bought my house around July, so it was a stretch to save this much. For all that effort, the return was pathetic.

2013 - Getting a little better

2014 - Ouch

2015 - OMG WTF.....

2016 - Recovery, whewww!

2017 - So far so good

And that's that. Nothing really exciting, but the final numbers are nice to look at.

    Wow, how did you obtain these? Did you keep records? I'm looking around my 401(k) provider site and can't find anything like this.

    My English Castle - thanks!

    Ceejay - This is something available in T-Rowe Price. Under Transactions -> Account Activity -> click on Show Filter to customize the date. Unfortunately, Vanguard doesn't have this feature. I'm not sure about other 401k providers.

    Yeah, Prudential only seems to do it by quarter.
