In one place you say your're trailing S&P by 8.6. In the other you say you're beating it by 5.4.

Hi Katinga,

Sorry for the confusion on that.

The trailing by 8.6 points was for the portfolio as a whole, measured by NAV and comparing to the S&P 500 since inception.

The other is as if all the purchases were on a scorecard, like Stock Advisor's, comparing each pick against the S&P at that time and averaging all of them together.

Cheers,
Jim
