I thought most people did out perform the market by a few points using screens. All the surveys of results I have seen have shown that. (surveys on this board).

Surveys here are meaningless. As are virtually all surveys & polls on internet sites. The people who respond are a self-selected group, and are not representative.

And in the case of the MI board, it's only people who have made above average returns. The people who lost money are long gone and don't visit here anymore and aren't around to give their survey answer of "underperformed".
