And that walk is anything but random.
It’s the kind of walk you take after rolling out of bed, rejuvenated while practicing prudent and effective sleep-at-night investing. This morning Eddy Elfenbein rolled out for the sixth consecutive New Year’s Day after watching his 20 Buy List stocks outperform the S&P 500 over the trailing year. Six years in a row. How many funds have outperformed the S&P 500 every single year over that time frame?
There’s a single fund that is 5-for-5 (didn’t exist six years ago). The fund (PSLDX) is a hybrid that appears to invest in stock futures and a blend of bonds. So it’s not even a direct comparison.
Eddy’s 2013 Buy List, as always — is a low turnover (no changes permitted during the calendar year) — collection of 20 stocks. They’re predominantly core stocks with a few special situations. Our tracking dashboard for Eddy’s 2013 Buy List is available here:
Crossing Wall Street: 2013 Buy List
We sleep pretty well too. And we’ll have some fun with the (20) best-positioned stocks from your 40 most widely-held stocks as shown in the accompanying listing.
It’s not a zero sum contest. We actually hope that Eddy will roll out successfully for a seventh straight year and that our favorites will join him.
For kicks, we’ll also add a group of honorable mention entries to our Christmas Countdown collection bringing the total to (20) and compare all of these participants side-by-side as 2013 progresses.
