    As crazy as this may sound, I am in the process of testing out what I'd like to call, "The Alphabet Fund".

    Basically, I am creating a personal fund with the following ticker symbols:
    A - Agilent Technologies
    B - Barnes Group, Inc
    C - Citigroup, Inc
    D - Dominion Resources, Inc
    E - ENI S.p.A.
    F - Ford Motor Company 
    G - Genpact Limited
    H - Hyatt Hotels Corporation
    I - N/A
    J - N/A
    K - Kellogg Company
    L - Loews Corporation
    M - Macy's Inc
    N - Netsuite Inc
    O - Realty Income
    P - N/A
    Q - Qwest Communications
    R - Ryder System, Inc
    S - Sprint Nextel Corporation
    T - AT&T Inc
    U - N/A
    V - Visa Inc.
    W - N/A
    X - United States Steel Corporation
    Y - Alleghany Corporation
    Z - N/A
    As you can see, there are some pretty recognizable names in this list.  I want to buy an equal number of shares of each company, and track it's performance relative to the SPY and QQQQ ETFs and see how well it does.  I have a feeling that my Alphabet Fund might actually outperform both SPY and QQQQ.  I will be giving regular updates on my theory -- that you don't have to be some Wall Street guru to outperform the general market.

    Disclosure: I am long Sprint and Citigroup
