Hello Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog, Stock Picks Bob's Advice. As always, please remember that I am an amateur investor, so please consult with your professional investment advisors prior to making any investment decisions based on information on this website.
I had a nice email a few days ago that I would like to share with you! (If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you very much to share your thought. It is great analysis.First of all, thank you William for your kind words. I like to share with you all my basic understanding of stocks and this helps me to evaluate stocks as well.
If you do not mind, could you tell me the ratio of your pick (winners/losers) and/or rate of return?
Thank you very much!
Unfortunately, I do not have the ratio of my picks (winners/losers) to share with you. I also do not have the rate of return. All of this information can be calculated because all of my past picks are located on the blog and organized by date along the left side of the page.
I suppose if anyone was ambitious enough, it wouldn't be hard to set up a spread sheet and calculate all of that out. It would also be interesting to calculate what the rate of return would be if we also applied my own personal selling strategy: selling losers quickly, and selling gainers slowly at targeted percentage gains.
But I don't have that information either :(.
What I do have, is the weekend review, where I look at stocks with about a trailing one year period, one week at a time, assume a buy and hold strategy, and calculate return.
Another thing I do is post my trading portfolio, which is accessible in a link along the left side of the blog, and keep readers updated with all of my trades and the current performance of my actual portfolio. I also have a "fantasy" mutual fund with marketocracy, and I use a rough form of portfolio management with my RMF fund. You can view the performance of that fund as well with a link along the left side of the blog.
Please remember that I am an amateur investor. If things continue to grow around here, I am sure that I will be able to get somebody to help me set up that other report. Meanwhile, I hope that my thinking stimulates you to thinking about stocks in an organized fashion. Please let me know if and how the information I write is helpful to you!
Again, remember I am an amateur. Consult with your professional investment advisors, and follow up with all investment suggestions with your own investigation.
