Day 151: Breaking Through 22%?
The Mother's Little Helper portfolio was up today +3,643.39 (+0.51%) . Overall GAIN YTD: +$128,025.55 (+21.93%).
According to CNN Money our benchmark index, the S&P 500 is up +7.91% Year To Date (http://money.cnn.com/data/markets/sandp/).
The portfolio is close to breaking through a 22% YTD gain. With some catalysts in healthcare and oil I think we could see some remarkable gains by year end. Below is a graph comparing Mother's Little Helper (blue line) to our benchmark S&P 500 YTD (red line), and the Russell 2000 Index YTD (yellow line). MLH is steadily ahead of both indexes and holds a large margin of error allowing for out performance even if the market declines.
