Fundranker Upturns April 2010 Update

Fundranker’s Top Eight Model Portfolio added another multi-month gain in February and March, 2010. The table below shows Fundranker’s multi-month gains and compares them to returns of the Nasdaq Composite Index (as measured by Fidelity’s Nasdaq Composite Index Fund) and the S&P 500 Index (as measured by Fidelity’s Spartan 500 Index - Investor Class Fund) over the same time periods. Since we didn’t start tracking the Nasdaq Composite Index until October, 2003, its returns are shown starting in 2004:

With its current two-month upturn, Fundranker has risen 11 of the last 13 months from its March 9, 2009, low. Fundranker is up again through April 15; perhaps it will extend its bull market run and this latest multi-month upturn still another month.

Over all the upturns, Fundranker now has an average gain of 21.237%; the S&P 500 Index gained only 11.693% on average. Over the 13 upturns during which we tracked the Nasdaq Composite Index, Fundranker now has an average gain of 16.371%; the Nasdaq Composite gained only 13.326% on average. See our Fundranker Upturns January 2010 Update post for earlier information.

Although past results are never an assurance of future performance, it’s still great to know that Fundranker regularly outperforms the Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 Indexes.
