I'm just wondering what the best way is compare my stock portfolio to what interest I would be earning if I had invested the money in a compound interest account. Right now looking at my Fool Scorecard my XIRR is at 15.7% (over last few years has been around 15-20%) and my "Annualized" # is 8.7%.

How can I define what those numbers mean? Is that a good result?
