QP cover story for April 2002

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?

I haven't read it, but I saw it and was intrigued by the caption on the cover. I'll read it and give my opinion later - I'm in a time crunch right now.

Three years of data now, eh? I hope this thread develops with some good feedback!

Carol,

I will look for this article to see if I have it. I have spoken to the Q-100 fund manager, nice guy. If I have it I will commit further.
