While it is completely fair to compare your portfolios to the S&P 500 as everyone else does, it is also important to understand they are very different and more akin to the Russel 2000 Growth stocks index e.g.

Have you ever considered comparing to this also? I think it would be an interesting exercise and perhaps enlightening.
