Special Ops and Deep Value Update

Note that due to the shuttering of both the Deep Value and Special Ops services, I’ve dropped them from the chart, but will include their prior historical returns until they roll off next year.

    Motley Fool’s performance figures are deceiving. Motley Fool always gives performance figures “since inception.” They are mostly useless because we generally don’t know when inception was and when we do know, we have to calculate the average annualized return. For example, Stock Advisor (David) shows absolute returns as of Devember 2016 as 305%. Stock Advisor was “started in 2002” (according to Kevin). Taking July 1, 2002 as the date of inception, the average annualized return is just 8%, about the same as the total market. It would be nice to see the performance figures over the most recent 1-year, 5-year and 10-year periods.
