    Clearing out the study and came across DJC's "Investment ideas" publication for November 01

    $20000 spread equally among the stocks suggested in returns a total of $19365 a year later (-6.3%). Not too bad considering the XAO is down 6.7% over the same period, but not quite as good as Ridges HC Comp List which managed a small gain (sorry I lost the numbers). I guess there might also have been a few dividends not taken account of compared with the HC stock too.

    I pasted this from excel and no doubt the columns will dissolve and make it impossible to follow, but the DJC recovery stocks did well (for a 27% gain) but not so the "growth" sector which registered a 34% loss.
