How Is Mom Doing?

Summary

About once a year I like to check on the performance of Mom's portfolio of 58 stocks.

Her stocks usually perform better than mine on average.  So it is time for my yearly lesson in humility.

Mom keeps offering to manage my portfolio for me to prevent me from making any foolish mistakes.  But I am 62 and I would rather do it myself.

The S&P 500, by the way, is up by 13.72% over the past 52 weeks.  So it will be interesting to compare the performance of each of Mom's stocks to the performance of the S&P 500.
