    This is one of the most common arguments we hear against following 13F filings. We responded to it in this Marketwatch article:

  • Avoid These 5 Dividend Monsters [View article]
    It is a legacy position. I stopped trading stocks because we are subject to several trading restrictions (i.e. no transactions within 10 days of the publication of an article) to prevent even the impression of any wrongdoing. Since we publish dozens of articles every day it is almost impossible for me to trade stocks.

    If you want to find out the list of stocks we really really like please visit this page (our picks returned 48.9% during the last 9 months): http://bit.ly/WQrEeN

    This article is written by Matt Doiron and he doesn't own CTL. I am the editor of Insider Monkey and I own the stock.

    They have a long-term equity strategy as well (these picks we discussed in this article most probably belong to that strategy). Its track record is better than index funds.

  • Billionaire Mason Hawkins' Top Stock Picks [View article]
    There is a chart on our site (see: http://bit.ly/GUugpE ) comparing our performance vs. the SPY. The market was flat between the end of August and the beginning of December. During this period our small-cap strategy beat the SPY by more than 9 percentage points. Don't confuse our alpha with beta. It is true that about 25 percentage points of our return is due to beta, but the remaining 25 percentage points is alpha.

    Keep watching us. We are very confident that we will outperform the S&P 500 index over the next 3-5 year period.

    By using those "useless" 13F filings we created an investment strategy and its stock picks returned 49.8% since the end of August. During the same period S&P 500 index gained only 20.3% including dividends.

    You can check out ALL of our stock picks from the first issue of our newsletter here: http://bit.ly/WQrEeN

    Our strategy beat the market by nearly 30 percentage points in less than 9 months. Don't you think $499 is a bargain for this kind of performance?

    The filing is made on May 14th. Sorry but you don't know how to read a 13F filing.

  • 5 Takeover Rumors Hedge Funds Have Been Buying [View article]
    I don't think you read our article correctly. The last time Icahn invested in CHK he made 30% in 3 months and sold the stock above $30.

    Icahn also initiated a 50 million share position in CHK last May when the stock was trading around $15. Again, he made around 30% from those transactions. The stock may have been a loser but you can still make a ton of money if you know when to buy and sell.

    Our stock picks gained 37% between September 2012 and March 2013, vs. 12.9% return for the S&P 500 index. I don't understand why you are glad?

    I am not picking and choosing the time frame. We first published these picks at the end of August. This is our entire track record.

    Our product is our small-cap strategy. If you are interested in 13F filings, the data is freely available on our website as well. We also provide a free 50+ page report summarizing quarterly filings.
