A bit more on Stockdoctor picks. They have analysed the previous years returns (1/7/00 to 30/6/01) on their Star Stock picks as follows :
Large Cap stocks > $1000m 24.99%
Medium Cap stocks > $100m 28.37%
Small Cap stocks < $100 13.8%
Tiny Cap stocks < $50m 12.34%

This surprised me because the perception is that the small caps will always do better that the medium to large caps.
Having thought about it I think I can see why the Medium caps do better. It is because they have gone through the initial marketing, R&D and lack of capital problems and have moved into the solid growth stage.
This is where the major growth takes place so I guess it is logical for that group to show the greatest gains.
Any comments anyone ??
Regards
Harmy
