My 2017 goal is to gain 30 plus percent on my portfo.  35 will be better. I think it is doable if Trump keeps his Twitter account.

Modest goal.  If one could own the market during bull markets, one could keep annual draw-downs from crushing a portfolio during bear markets, one would be very happy. 

This would be decent....http://www.optimalmomentum.com/gem_trackrecord.html

There may be more to this than you think......

Don't set yourself up for disappointment. Most fund managers would be content with less than half that gain.

Modest goal.

I think it's pretty ambitious.

Me too.  I should have winked.

Never hurts to try for lofty goals if you are within your risk tolerance.

I've had a hard time exceeding 17% a year or so, and was fortunate to be relatively flat during the recent down years (2008).  But I've never been well diversified.  I prefer to be heavily invested in a handful of things I can watch closely.

We have a fund the wife got when her parents died that we have to take a withdrawl once a year.  In 2016 the fund made back both the 2015 and 2016 withdrawls plus 25% .
