    [March 31 2014, links added April 11&15 2014]

    We don't call specific stocks and price targets very often; but since it has been requested on a couple of occasions, and since we'd like to keep some kind of record ourselves, here is a place where we keep track of the few calls that we have made and their subsequent performance.

    This record should be viewed as work in progress and will be updated and expanded at times. Feel free to remind us of calls that we have made, but forgot to mention in this list.
