  * The returns shown assume investment of equal amounts each day in each recommended stock,  buying  at the opening price the day of recommendations, holding for 20 market days (about 1 month), selling at the closing price on the last day, and repeating with fresh recommendations.  The returns are calculated assuming a starting portfolio of $1 million and $8 commission paid on each buy and sell.

These performance graphs - three and half years- visualize historic risks and returns - "past performance" - against the SPY ETF benchmark.  When the value of a line falls below a portion of the line to the left (in the same year), there is risk. Both the benchmark and the recommendations have risk and rewards.

A detailed technical report on the characteristics of these recommendations is also available.
