Using the BMWm, or any other for that matter.

At what point should you consider your portfolio successful on a year-to-year basis?

I know beating the S&P is the benchmark, but isn't our goal to do a little better?

Is 15% too outrageous to expect year-to-year? How about 12%?

On a long term basis, at what return can I say that I am using the BMWm well?

I've read many old posts and BuildMWell strives for 25%, but that cannot be our expected return.
