Last month, in a post about Portfolio Armor‘s security selection method (A Security Selection Method That Beats The Market), I might have included a few too many charts. At least, that’s the impression you gave in the comments. So this time, I’ve decided to use a table instead, where every starting date links to an interactive chart.

What Am I Talking About Again?

Using price history and option market sentiment to pick securities likely to do well over the next 6 months. These securities are all hedgeable against declines as small as 9% if you want to hedge your bets with them.

Less Talk, More Numbers

Here you go.

So Portfolio Armor’s top ten names averaged 19.51% over the average of these 17 6-month periods, versus SPY’s average of 11.82%, an average outperformance of 7.69% over 6 months.

That table gets updated every Thursday. You can find it here.

For a few months starting at the end of September, I time-stamped some of those top names each week on Twitter. I’ve collected them in a thread on Twitter, along with their results 6 months later. To see, just click on the tweet below and scroll down.

Wishing a Happy Easter and Passover to the Slope community this weekend.
