How We've Reined in Losses During this Downturn

by: Eddy Elfenbein

Eddy Elfenbein submits: Our Buy List is down -0.20% for the year, and the S&P 500 is down -0.30% (not including dividends). The daily volatility of the Buy List is 7.15% greater than the S&P 500.

Here's the graph based on a $1 million investment equally weighted in the 20 stocks at the beginning of the year.

Buy List vs S&P 500

By avoiding the heavy cyclicals, we avoided much of the pain of the current correction.
