Hello,

My question concerns the annualized return benchmarks reported on the Motley Fool personal portfolio section. Under the annualized return for my personal portfolio is the annualized return for the S&P 500. The counter says this is 42%, which clearly is not correct.

Am I misunderstanding what the S&P annualized return is?

Thanks.

Joe
