Flat in 2012

January 02, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: BEN , VALE , PBR

In 2012, this portfolio had 21 active picks and largely market performed.  The portfolio lost 9 points from 263 to 254.  Accruacy fell from 54% to 51%, as on the margin these stocks did not keep up with the S&P 500.    [more]



Winning in 2011

January 03, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: MSFT , BBY , MA

For this portfolio, 2011 was the exact opposite of 2010.  In 2010, the market was up, and this portfolio struggled to score points.  In 2011, the market was flat, and this portfolio soared.  The total score of this portfolio increased from 99 to 263.  With 18 active picks, the average outperformance was north of 9%.  Accuracy also increased from 48.65% to 54.65% which shows that the gains were widespread and not the result of one position that skyrocketed.    [more]



2010 bites the dust

January 03, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: RIG

Despite 2010 being a strong year for equities this portfolio struggled.  The score dipped 50 points and the accuracy fell below 50%.  For 2011, the theme is "Drop the Zeroes,  Get with the Heroes".  Serial underperformers ISH, UTMD, RIG, BAC and CX are gone.  RIG was the hardest, but if oil prices fall in 2011, it will be tough for the value of the driller to increase.  [more]



Adios 2009

January 04, 2010 – Comments (0)

So 2009 was by all means a successful year for this portfolio.  Big winners included VALE, DOW, and several other industrial companies.  PACR was by far the largest disappointment but, was outweihed by several other smaller winners.  [more]
