How did we do by comparison?

This is a little excerpt from an article by Jeff Fischer from MF Pro. (There are no buy or sell recommendations in this excerpt. In fact there are no stocks mentioned by name).

It’s worth pausing to highlight that 2015 was a bear market for most stocks. Consider that:

70% of stocks in the Russell 2000 fell 20% or more last year;
49% of stocks in the S&P 500 fell 20% or more last year, and
68% of Nasdaq Composite stocks fell 20% or more last year.

That’s a bear market. In fact, the median stock in the S&P 500 fell 22% in 2015. Lest you think it was only suspect stocks that fell, the reality is that most new stocks recommended by the Fool’s monthly newsletters were down, because most stocks were falling, period. The numbers below reflect results through today:

Of 2015 MF Stock Advisor picks, 8 are up and 17 are down.

Of 2015 MF Rule Breaker picks, 2 are up and 22 are down.

Of 2015 MF Hidden Gem picks, 3 are up and 20 are down.

Of 2015 MF Income Investor picks, 2 are up and 10 are down.

I’d say that we all did pretty darn well !
