The first week of 2011 got off to a flyer and week 2 hasn’t been too shabby either.
A virtual portfolio has been set up using the 2010 Dec 31st close figures as a starting point and £1000 has been invested in each stock. This does not include buying fees or stamp duty and is purely intended to be used as a benchmark or summary for each week. The B list has also been included for comparisons. I included 2 of the newspapers top ten for 2011 to monitor/compare against.
The virtual portfolio’s use the ‘last trade’ system to calculate the days close.
Building on the Hotlist’s week 01 gain of 7.23%, week 02 ended up at a very sweet 9.59%. The ‘B’ List also did well rising from week 01 2.45% gain to reach 3.53%. The independent and Tempus Times 2011 picks are listed below. Not too bad either. But the 2011 Hotlist leads the bunch for the moment!
