Note that the company may report on a different day, these are estimates. A positive surprise in earnings and revenues with upbeat forward guidance from management is usually the trifecta earnings call that moves share prices higher.

I think it's occasionally helpful to put the MLH Portfolio in perspective by looking at the year-to-date returns from the best performing hedge funds. The percentage gains I show in each post make a little more sense when compared against funds that are run by professional portfolio managers with tens or hundreds of millions of dollars under management. The funds listed below are the best performing, Long Only hedge funds showing year to date returns.

Kingsferry Classic Value Fund 59.40%

Allan Gray Africa Equity Fund Limited 33.41%

Spyglass Partners Fund LP 36.32%

Mother's Little Helper 36.17%

Tosca Opportunity 14.25%
