Family Stock Index Q1 2013 Review

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 19:06

After the best first quarter for U.S. stocks in fifteen years, the major market averages begin the second quarter of 2013 at all-time highs (not the Nasdaq, I know; can we just pretend 1999-2000 didn’t happen?  Thanks).  The Family Stock Index is likewise at an all-time high, and we beat the other broad market indices handily during the first quarter.

  1. FSX +13.6%
  2. Dow Industrials +11.2%
  3. S&P 500 +10.0%
  4. NASDAQ Composite +8.2%

In a bull market like this one, it’s not enough to have a positive return—you’ve got to beat the market to prove your worth.  Here’s how the FSX members performed during the first quarter.

#1-6: MARKET BEATERS

Reaganesque

#1 – Ruby (RJET) +103%.  Don’t worry, Boo-boo; I won’t tell Reagan about this affront until after she comes back from Hilton Head next week.

Obviously Spoiled

#2 – Zondro (ZQK) +43%
#3 – Wilson (WILC) +40%

I’m too nice to them, obviously.  Can I adopt a snapping turtle?  How about a wolverine?

Serial Acquirer

#4 – Charlotte (ICE) +32%.  I would’ve sold the derivatives clearing business along with the European bourses, but what do I know?  I lost to Justin.

Armed Camps

#5 – Justin (SCI) +21%.  Oh, real nice, Justin.  You had to tack on that extra $0.18 on the last day of trading to pass me.  I won’t forget this.  18 cents—I will write that number on your soul in the blood of a billion suns.
#6 – Lee (TGI) +20%.  Book War III is over; I may know in a month or so if I won.  Up next?  The War of 18 Cents.

#7-20: MARKET PERFORMERS

Cubans

#7 – Dustin (DST) +18%
#8 – Jenny (JNY) +15%
#9 – Mario the Younger (MAR) +13%

Cigars

#10 – Icarus (FAST) +10%
#11 – Nicole E. (NICE) +10%
#12 – Winston (ED) +10%

Close, But No Cigar

#13 – Mario the Elder (MGEE) +8.8%
#14 – Namilita (NL) +8.6%
#15 – Nicole M. (COLM) +8.5%
#16 – Ghost Marisa (MOLXA) +8.1%

Those Candy Cigarettes You Used to Get Sometimes on Halloween but Now You Never See

#17 – Lisa (LNCE) +4.7%
#18 – Reagan (REGN) +3.1%
#19 – Katie (CATY) +3.0%

Candy Cigarette Wrapper

#20 – Marcus (MCS) +0.2%

#21-25: IN A DARK CORNER IN THE BACK OF THE CLOSET, RINGED BY AIR FRESHENERS

Lulu’s Litterbox

#21 – Brinkley (BCO) -0.9%
#22 – Zero (ZAGG) -1.1%

Lulu’s Litter

#23 – Jodi Ann (JOY) -6.7%
#24 – Lucas (LEI) -9.5%

Lulu

#25 – Lulu (LULU) -18%
