This past week was interesting. I got my haircut beside Conrad Black. So I told my barber, “Give me the ‘Conrad Black Special'”. Mr. Black smirked. What intrigued me was that he pays $21 bucks for a cut just like most of us. This week I also launched my new YouTube Channel.
The first quarter of the 2017 calendar year has come and gone. I already shared with you my 2016 Best Performers. And below are my Top 10 Stock Performers for 2017 year-to-date (January – March).
A Couple of Takeaways (2017 YTD):
- 3/10 stocks are return best performers from 2016 – Tucows, Savaria, and Canopy Growth Fund
- These 10 stocks, as well as my entire portfolio, are segmented based on three categories: Mis-Priced Large Caps, Capital Compounders, and Speculative Takeovers. Read More
- My overall portfolio (+6.79%) beat the S&P 500 (+5.53%), Dow Jones (4.55%), and S&P/TSX (1.70%) benchmarks. But my top 10 stocks were up 31.90% on average
- In the next couple of weeks I’ll allocate new capital to some of these top 10 stocks (see below)
- National Beverage Corp (65.48%) is surging on the strength of its product line – LaCroix, which is a sparkling water – huge growth!
- My biggest loser overall in my portfolio, Under Armour, dropped 31.91%. I bought in too early into this mis-priced large cap stock
