Undervalued Stock Of The Week: 6 Month Report Card

|Includes:HIMX, SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY)

In the table below are the results so far of my undervalued stock of the week series. I have been pleasantly surprised by how well my picks have done, albeit in a strong market, the real test will come when there is a market correction. So far 14 out of my 19 picks have outperformed the S&P 500 (NYSEARCA:SPY) and on average by a decent margin. Even if I exclude my best pick of HIMX, my picks have significantly outperformed the SPY. In addition the percentage changes below DO NOT take into account dividends, so the returns on a total return basis would be higher for those stocks that pay a dividend. Himax (NASDAQ:HIMX) was my first pick and has been the biggest winner so far rising 157% since my article. Overall I am very pleased with the results so far, and I look forward to providing more picks in 2014.
