Harry as Example

by Irv

(April 6, 1999) -- Harry paid a substantial brokerage fee when he opened this account in January, starting the portfolio at -3.62% right off the bat (he's learned since then). But the thing is, he was beating many mutual funds after three months ANYWAY. The average mutual fund returned about 1.28% during the first quarter. Many returned less. As of today, Harry is up 3.5%. Just goes to show you something.
