I bet you UltraLong didn't know this...
Not in a million years would UltraLong think that portfolio of my recommendations I made on 10/6/09 would be up 32% after only 5 short moths. No way. Just noooo way. I know UL too well...
When he last updated this portfolio for me (I was on a medical leave) in comment# 6 from this post, the return of this same portfolio of my 5 picks was minus 4 %.
TEN is up 79.8% since my initial recommendation,
ARM is up 79.1%,
SAH is up 18.9%,
SEH is up 6.7%, and
PNX is down 24% (p.s. At one point PNX was best performing stock from this portfolio: up 34%)
The whole portfolio is up 32% if same amount invested in each stock. Even with a dog like PNX.
Who would think? I bet you UL didn't...
p.s.1 UL, sorry for shameless use of your name to get attention to my posts... :)
