What is realistic? I have started reading Lynch's book and others. Everyone seems to agree that you can beat the performance of most mutual funds by knowing what you are doing. As I recall, those mutual funds were running as high as 25% to 40% return in one year prior to the big downturn. IF one becomes a good stock picker, what is a reasonable rate of return? When analysist say they expect the price of a stock which is currently selling at say $20 per share to reach $25.00 per share would not that be a 25% return on your investment if the stock actually did go up to $25.oo? Does this happen very often? I am just learning about these things so input from those who have been at it a while is very helpful

Thanks
