Survey question
If you already answered this survey on another board, please do not answer again. There are two sets of questions one on the first page and one on the first response to the first page. Comparison is with the S&P 500 index, a factor of two would be 2 times the market return of the S&P. Please be honest.

Over the past few years, the investments in stocks that I have picked for myself (not mutual funds or ETF’s) have:
Beat the market by a factor greater than 2
Beat the market by a factor of 1.1-2
Approximately matched the market, factor of 1
Lost to the market by a factor of 0.5-0.99
Lost to the market by a factor less than 0.5
