After 2 months and two days.
20 of 25 are still on the list, not having fallen 10% below the index (6% gain). The 5 that fell off the list were therefore accounted at minus 4% apiece. Shady accounting practice.
14 of the original 25 beat the market. But the aggregate score then is about a 7% gain, which is a two month market out-performance of 17%, in newsletter terms.
Outliers and percentages (rounded) they actually gained:
I rode CMLS to a nice gain.
I bought BGCP in a non-trading, LTBH account. It had formed an ascending triangle, had a stupid P/S ratio, and I think today the yield is still over 11% after it has run up some.
