Hey everyone,

Here's the link to a snapshot of how my Best Buys Now are performing as of market close today. The updated sheet to look at is the one titled "Motley Portfolio BBN 3". Also remember that this reflects the four ideas that I discussed on Cash Flow the other night:

This link is to a Google Docs spreadsheet which I will periodically update on a periodic basis via an Excel spreadsheet I maintain which plugs in to Capital IQ and updates prices instantly in real time. So the takeaways from this installment are:

• Currently of the 22 picks, 15 are beating the market and 7 are losing to the market;
• Of the 22 picks 17 have absolute positive returns;
• The big winner versus the market is Starbucks beating the market by 19.3 points;
• The big loser versus the market is Apple losing to the market by 30.8 points;
• Biggest absolute winner is Starbucks up 24.2%;
• Biggest absolute loser is Apple down 24.5%.

For another perspective, if you invested $1,000 in each pick and $1,000 in each corresponding market pick (so for those counting at home that's $22,000 total in each portfolio) the BBN's balance would stand at $23,022.59 and the market's balance would stand at $23,015.07. Note this is not a time-weighted calculation, just a very simple absolute total of the columns. Just another way to look at it.

Keep on the lookout for a new installment very soon.

Foolish best,
