I am sorry to see Lee stop posting his mid-cap benchmarks. He truly did an amazing job for 8 years here at this site.While I cannot do what Lee did, I will do my best to post quarterly updates for benchmark stocks from the S&P 100. I personally continue to use benchmark investing and have found it to be very rewarding.If you are patient and wait for the hugely undervalued companies and conduct your own due diligence, you can be handsomely rewarded. In a post TTD study dating back to the 1950s, we found the optimal strategy was to invest only in those companies trading 20% or more below their downside price target. The second best strategy was: below DPT and above 10% estimated earnings growth.
