I've added a new tab to the IIEX website labeled "SA Record".  As noted on the website I've been in the process of developing a model mostly based on the Graham/Buffett principles. The model is updated to reflect market conditions and is constantly being tweaked and sometimes changed in an effort for more accuracy. The results are located on the "Value Calcs" tab. 

Major changes to the model are complete but will continue to undergo minor revisions since the learning process is a never ending cycle. Most articles that focus on individual companies are generated from the model when discounts to fair value look attractive.  This new webpage keeps track of how well these stocks perform. 

The table (shown on the new webpage) measures performance of each company from the initial publish date on SA. Each represents a hypothetical investment of $10,000 so each stock is weighted equally. S&P return from the start date is listed in the bottom right corner of the table.
I decided on this method because of its transparency.  The reader can check the publish date recorded on SA, a date that can't be changed.  So far the performance as measured against the S&P is doing well, however the market can be full of surprises so we'll see if above average performance is maintained in the long term.

The publish dates and links to each article on SA are listed below the table.

As always any feedback such as suggestions for changes or improvements, mistakes, etc. are appreciated.
