    Feb 1, 2013 7:29 PM | about stocks: BRK.A

    Well the first month is over and here is the report on how my 3 portfolios did against Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK.A) and the S & P 500:

    Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A)

    • 9.72% - YTD
    • 24.86% - Last 12 months

    S & P 500


    • 5.18% - YTD
    • 15.72% - Last 12 months

    Barchart Van Meerten New High (VMNHI)


    • 8.94% - YTD
    • 21.44% - Last 12 months

    Barchart Van Meerten Speculative (VMSPC)


    • 8.45% - YTD
    • 33.60% - Last 12 months

    Barchart Van Meerten Small Cap (VMVLS)


    • 15.17% - YTD
    • 33.60% - Last 12 months

    Summary: For the last 12 months I beat Warren Buffet 2 out of 3 portfolios and for the YTD only one of my 3 portfolios beat him. As for the S & P 500 I beat that 3 out of 3 for both periods.
