Need I put this in perspective? Index funds and large cap funds will do 20 to 30% in a good year. Recently we have talked about Janus XX, which did 70% in 1998. Fidelity Select Electronics in a recent unspecified 12 months (probably ending June 30) did 114.7%. That is an average of 9.6% per month or 6.6%/mo compounded--a bit better than CD's.

Clearly technology stocks and sector funds are hot!!
