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:
TITN 23
FDML 32
UIS 36
BGCP 26
CMLS 41
AXL 17
BZH 19
TNS 44

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.
