For the first time, I published stock picks in 2013. I was inspired by Eddy Elfenbein after reading his Crossing Wall Street blog for many years. He makes it look so easy. His annual “Buy List” has beat the S&P 500 for seven straight years!

My goal was to beat the  S&P 500, which returned 32.37% in 2013. Mission Accomplished. My 2013 return was 37.97%
