  • Tracking My Seeking Alpha Performance 2 comments

    As it is often mentioned on the Seeking Alpha contributor forums but has yet to be implemented, I thought it would be interesting to track my own performance on the site. Since I usually avoid giving very specific buy advice in my articles, I will simply limit the performance-tracking to stocks that I wrote favorably about. I will only include stocks that have been written about more than two months ago, to provide better perspective. I will include the company name, ticker and the date the article was published as well as the stock's approximate price per share at the time of publication and subsequent gain/loss.

    (Numbers from YCharts.com, as of 8/10/13, all numbers include dividends reinvested where applicable)
