One Day Left

Unfortunately, the 2010 Buy List is limping to the finish line. We’re still ahead of the market, but our lead has closed some over the last few weeks.

The problem is that the Buy List is fairly light on cyclical stocks so we didn’t catch the biggest part of the recent updraft. We don’t have any energy stocks and that area has done especially well.

Since November 5, the S&P 500 is up 2.77% while the Buy List is up just 0.28%. Honestly it’s not that bad, but it takes some luster off what’s been a very good year.

Still, through yesterday’s close the Buy List is up 14.86% to the S&P 500’s 12.97%. That doesn’t include dividends. I’ll have the complete numbers this weekend, but dividends will add about 2% to the S&P 500 and about 1.65% for our Buy List.
