A Market Beating Portfolio

It is generally said that beating S&P 500 on a regular basis is hard. I have been experimenting with an idea of a portfolio of 28 stocks that are evaluated on a weekly basis based on many of my own criteria. Some new stocks are added in place of stocks that do not meet my criteria any more. This has done extremely well so far. I want the readers to have a look at this and express their opinions and suggestions.

The performance for the last 1 month for my portfolio is 7.36% against S&P 500 return of 2.37%. BABA, CDW and ESNT were sold on April 3, 2017 and replaced by COHR, VMW and RP. CAVM was replaced by ALGN on April 17. This new portfolio was started on March 27, 2017. For the calculation, the buy price is the open price of the stock on the day it was bought.
