Just thought I would kick off a new thread on this subject. Has anyone read the article by Stephen George "Bull or Bear?" in the April issue of Quality Progress?
I was pretty appalled by it, and showed a lot of short term thinking. The Performance reports covered only 13 quarters (3 years). I would need much more historical data to prove an idea as this, say a 10 to 15 year study.
One little tidbit - look at figure 3, showing individual quartly performances. The Q-100 followed the S&P500. 6 of the 13 quarters showed negative performance. 3 of those, the Q-100 lost more than the S&P500.
Thoughts from the group?
