Half the year has flown by already so let’s quickly check how our top stocks for 2012 has been doing.
The original experiment was to have a small crowd of value investors submit and vote up or down stocks. The top 10 were then added to a virtual $100k portfolio with each position equally weighted at $10k.
First quarter performance was just mammoth at +30% but things quickly returned to the mean and the portfolio is now up 8.7% compared to the S&P total return of 9.96%.
It goes to show that you can’t judge a portfolio by quarters or even a year. You need several years of performance before you can judge whether a strategy has succeeded or not.

Investing Magazine Coming Soon
My first investing magazine is now complete and I will be releasing it next week.
It is a 30 page high definition PDF and I hope that it offers great value and help for you or any new investor you may know.
But here are the details.
To be able to download, you need a twitter or facebook account. There is no cost other than a tweet in exchange to download the file.
If you don’t have a twitter or facebook account and refuse to create one, I’ll send the pdf to email subscribers a couple of weeks later.
