Today, we'll take a look at Jason Donville's Top Picks of 2012.
Once again, every Top Pick for which the price has rised from 100% at least gets a rating of "good". Every Top Pick for which the price has rised between 0 and 100% gets a rating of "average". And finally, every Top Pick for which the price has declined gets a rating of "bad".
The Standard and Poors (S&P) index has been up 56% since January 1st 2012. That's why it's still required to get a 100% yield to get "good".
Precision: Some companies could go private or be bought a little after Jason made his picks. I don't consider anything else than the price at the time when the Top Pick was made and the last price recorded for the shares. Only the result in appreciation is considered.

A few stats about those 6 appearances on the TV:
1/6, Donville has had 3 good top picks
2/6, Donville has had one bad top pick
2/6, Donville has had 2 or 3 good top picks
6/6, Donville has had at least one good top pick
If we attribute a note of 10/10 for each good top pick, a note of 5/10 for each average top pick and a note of 0/10 for each bad top pick, Donville would get the global score of 125/18 which is equivalent to 6,9/10. So, his top picks for that period were "average plus".
