Calculating the Loss – Wealth Guard Management

# Calculating the Loss

## Follow the Simple Math How to calculate the % return necessary to recoup your lost principal.

Example:
\$10,000.00
\$3000.00
\$7,000.00

Divide the loss, \$3,0000 by the remaining principal (\$7,000) = .4286%, rounded off to 43%.

A 43% Gain necessary to recapture the principal of a 30% loss.

(So to check the math, multiply \$7,000 x .4286% =\$3,000.20)

Another example:

Say you lost 20%…..
\$10,000.00
\$2,000.00
\$8,000.00

Divide the loss, \$2,000 by the remaining principal (\$8,000) = .25%

A 25% gain is necessary to recoup a 20% loss of principal.

(And again, multiply the \$8,000 x .25% = \$2000.00!)

Remember: 1. It will always take more time AND more gain to offset a loss.

2. You may afford the loss, but can you afford the time to recoup the principal?
