    If you check back in my previous posts , I have sold some losers but yes these have been pretty good picks. I try to go through his recomendations and pick what I believe are sound stocks. Over all the average for all his recomendations is not that great but it is in the plus side.

    Frusnak,
    Instead of doing 1000 share lots, shouldn't you do it so you weight an equal part of your portfolio to each? Using that method, price has a large influence on return %, because so much of your portfolio would be in more expensive stocks. By equally allocating everything, it would balance out the inequalities caused by share price and give a more accurate picture of the overall portfolio return.
    I don't know if I'm being clear, do you get what I'm trying to convey?

    Yes, like you have 10 stocks so each gets 10% of your portfolio, if you had 5 each would be 20%... not like you imply above, with says you would have 1000 shares of everything, so you might have $10,000 in something but $50,000 in another.
