I posted messages in Portfolio management & mechanical Investing about the track record of TMF Industry Focus 1999. TMF reported a +46% gain in '99 & naturally does not promise a repeat. I tracked the top selections in each Industry group & the results can be seen @http://www.geocities.com/WallStreet/6057/foolnov.htmlThe above shows a performance of about plus 11% since Jan. 1999.The Focus list for '99 includes, unless I am wrong, plus 200 securities. This quantity of securities will then perform as a mutual fund or index fund. I do not doubt the performance reported by TMF but would like to see the the calculations. Such a large selection of securities is not practical for a Fool. All large brokerage firms have a Focus list tracked by the WSJ. To the best of my knowledge no list exceeds 35 stocks and most under 30.I also sent TMF a email which remained unanswered. I am surprised at the lack of response from TMF. This is not typical for TMF to respond & support their publications.As a follower of Retirement Investment and a admirer of some of the banter I decided to repost here & await a response. Also, you awake my interest with the retirement portfolios that will be posted & tracked. A focus selection by some ex oilfield hands is tracked & posted monthly. The selections never exceed 18 securities. A record is kept of securities removed from the list to track the overall record. No security is kept for more than 1 year. If re-posted it is listed again but at the price on the day it is relisted, not at the original listing price.
