In october, I wrote some lines about the results of the four analysts listed above over a one year period.
Three months later, in the eye of the storm, let's take a look at which analyst did the best. Take note that the period is slightly different for each analyst because they almost never appear on TV at the same time. However, their appearances have been close enough to compare them.
Once again, I've retained the three top picks for each analyst. An average return is calculated for each list of 3 top picks.
Jason Donville (february 5th, 2015)
Valeant (VRX.TO): DOWN 45%
Constellation Software (CSU.TO): UP 38%
CGI Group (GIB-A.TO): UP 6%
Average return for top picks: 0%
Fabrice Taylor (january 28th, 2015)
Klondex Mines (KDX.TO): UP 2%
State Office (SOT-UN.TO): DOWN 20%
Snip Interactive (SPN.V): DOWN 48%
Average return for top picks: DOWN 22%
Christine Poole (february 10th, 2015)
Royal Bank (RY.TO): DOWN 12%
PPG Industries (PPG): DOWN 20%
Loblaws (L.TO): UP 4%
Average return for top picks: DOWN 9%
Bruce Campbell (january 14th, 2015)
Diversified Royalties (DIV.TO): DOWN 24%
Nobilis Health (NHC.TO): DOWN 16%
Patient Home Monitoring (PHM.V): DOWN 31%
Average return for top picks: DOWN 24%
Can you believe it? Two of these analysts did worse than the stock market with their top picks (Fabrice Taylor and Bruce Campbell). One analyst did almost the same as the stock market (Christine Poole) and Jason Donville is still the king with his 0% total return (beats the index by 11-12%).
I'm not really surprised for the results of Donville, but I'm beginning to think that the others are fucking lame. They're suppose to give advices to people on TV and they fucking can't achieve results better than the index with their biggest conviction picks.
Worse, they fucking achieve results twice as bad as the market.
