    Hi all,

    We all have risk tolerances, preferred asset classes and budget allocations. Some prefer real estate, commodities, stocks, bonds, crypto, domains or even cash.

    What proportion of your portfolio is invested in domain names?

    Not sure if I phrased the question correctly, but I personally need to diversify more. Wanted to see how much seasoned domainers put into domains. Also another good question, what % of my domains are assets. I’d like to think maybe 50%. There are probably some I renew that will never sell

    That is a pretty hard question to answer. It would need additional framing.

    How you are evaluating domain portfolio value?
    With liquid assets it is far easier.

    Good point about value. Let’s say % invested rather than actual projected value

    25% - securities / bonds / stock
    25% - real estate
    25% - commodities / crypto / monies
    25% - domains
    suppose to have 1-2% in cash, so just take 1% off of each and 4% cash. ty

    if you want to diversify, here is a great site that actually lets you invest in gold and they hold it in a vault for you where you dont have to have it at home:

    How does one value a domain portfolio?

    1) average list price X # of domains is flawed because it assumes 100% turn at prices most buyers are not willing to pay and ignores renewal costs

    2) portfolio cost (acquisition cost + renewals) X # of domains held could be considered a liquidation value for aged portfolios but would likely overstate the value for newbies with many domains which will never sell.

    3) prior year cash flow times a multiple of 5-10 - domain sales are sporadic and future sales may not necessarily mimic those results but prior year cash flow (sales less commissions less renewals) would be a starting point of assessing future cash flow. A business which generates positive cash flow should be able to find buyers willing to pay for that income stream. The multiple could be debated but with interest rates close to zero....Of course sometimes potential sales are lost because the buyer and seller were not able to reach an agreement on price. Assuming that domain could eventually sell would be an indication of value even though in that prior year the cash flow result for that domain was likely a renewal fee.

    There might be better of safer investments, but domains are the most satisfying.

    I'm about 50/50 in domains and real estate. Ever since I figured out they (whoever 'they' are) are not making either anymore in quality parcels/segments, I started jumping in hard to both.

    About 5% .. maybe 7% ... 90% of my domains are Liquid though ... if we go into a recession ... I will just buy and up my Liquid % in domains .. buy cheap - sell high ... having substantial capital in a recession is far better than living it up right now paying hyper inflated prices ..I save for a recession just so I can do a lot of bargain shopping ...

    Yep. You save in the good times to prepare for the bad times.
