Saul's Returns Analysis

Hi there,

Firstly thank you to Saul and the community here, I’m English, live in London but learning and discovering the joys of US growth investing.

I have a portfolio of 20 stocks but trying to build up the confidence/analysis to justify moving down to a 6-8 Saul stock strategy with a view to increasing those annual returns.

After looking at the knowledge base for Saul’s annual returns, I was wondering if the years beyond the below are available to be shared?


2011: (-14.5%)

2012: 23.0%

2013: 51.0%

2014: (-9.8%)

2015: 16.0%

I also noticed this comment

"I can no longer put all my money in a half dozen little stocks, or get in and out of a stock position on a dime as I could when my portfolio was a tiny fraction of the size it is now. I just can’t be as nimble as I was and I’ll be very happy now if I can average 22% growth per year instead of 32%. "

Is this now outdated as per Saul’s current November 2019 portfolio of 9 stocks?

Thank you Saul and all the active contributors to this hidden gem of a board!
