Alphabet Fund

|Includes:Agilent Technologies Inc. (A), B, C, CTL, D, E, F, G, H, K, L, M, N, O, R, S, T, V, X, Y

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.
