For what ever it is worth:

I decided in December when I rebalanced to keep a little of the AOL that I was supposed to sell when following the screens I use. I assigned it to the RS26 bullet. 74 sh at about 68 = abuot 5,000. It stayed at 3 or above until April, and went Long term for me from the original purchase date. Sold when dropped to #4, price 142. Switched to the new #1, VISX. VISX up about 45%. As of now, the original 5,000 is about 15,000.

I am now sorry to see your results from the backtest. Makes me worry about what I have done and about whether I can hope the gains will persist.

but I still am not so negative about your results. Yes, the volitility is very high. But so is the CAGR. What is lethal about that? I guess I am just not very sure about how to interpret the results when they fall into this very high range.

Good Returns
