Spinoffs continue to live up to their reputation for market-beating returns with the Bloomberg Spin-Off Index up 60% Y/Y. Sifting through this year's large class, Barron's likes CST Brands (CST, also liked by SA Pro's Daniel Phillips), and Blackhawk Network (HAWK). Another oft-profitable play is buying the parent before the spinoff, and Ingersoll-Rand (IR) - ahead of its security business divestment - may fit the bill. There's also the Guggenheim Spin-Off ETF (CSD) which has consistently beaten the SPY since its inception more than 6 years ago.

    Hah, just sold my CSD this week, after enjoying the 50% rise over the past year. My luck, the Barrons tout will be good for a nice pop Monday.
