Sometimes, simple does pretty well too...

If you take the top 2,3,4, or 5 stocks
in the DJIA that performed the best
over the last 3 or 6 months,
you would have doubled the return
of the SPY ETF from 2009 to now.
See chart below

Even looking at the last 3 years,
you would have done well; 
even taking out AAPL.

To find the winners,
use this link and look for the top
winners in the 3 month (quarter) or 6 month (half) column.
It's sorted on the quarter returns,AMGN,AXP,B...
