How over 3 years? A fair question, so I checked.

My returns per Fidelity for 3 years: 12.5%

Per my Fidelity numbers:

DJI: 13.05%

NAS: 16.14%

Russell: 14.61%

S&P: 14.6%

Maybe I didn't hit a home run, but I wouldn't say I did that bad for 3 years, either.

Keep in mind, I do NOT just stick my money in there and "let it ride". I make changes in some areas, while letting things like AT&T, for example, just pay me 5% or so.

I'm just saying that people MAY be able to do better if they do their homework and monitor what their money is doing.
