Finally back

Dear readers,

it has been a very tough month for me. Very busy at work and very busy for an MBA degree I just got last week.

Now I am back and I decided to dedicate part of this week-end to a quick analysis of Louis Navellier's performance for the month of November 2008.

Let's start from the $5.000/year Global Growth performance.

Louis Navellier closed 22 trades this month and none of them was profitable. Average loss for all 22 trades is almost 40%.

In the table hereafter you can see a quick summary of the trades. In addition to the amazing 97.84% loss with XTLB you can see there half of the trades generated losses of more than 40%.

Moving to the $5.000/year Quantum Growth service we can notice that the 13 trades generated an average loss of 12%. There have been 1 profitable trade (6.32%) and a break-even. The other 11 trades were crap.

It is interesting to notice that buying when Mr. Navellier said "Sell" would have generated a 4.28% average profit up to last Friday...

Interesting comments. I don't think any manager has made any profit unless they shorted. Maybe this guy borrowed the shares to sell and has since bought them back at a much cheaper price. Is that possible?

PNRA, PETS, CMP, STRA, EBS, and MYGN are still up for the YTD returns. These are just the ones I know off the top of my head.

1. pharmacy stocks (such as mail order pet pharmacies and drug research companies) are generally still doing well.
2. Fast food companies such as PNRA are still doing well.
3. Education companies are doing well, expected to continue to do well as Obama takes office.
