My mind remains confused by the comparisons of all these newsletter performance evaluations that tells us how great their recommended stock performance was when they had average return of say 20% while the DOW gained 30%. What am I missing? Just buy a DOW index fund and make 30% right? Seems to me a newsletter evaluation that was 40% gain over the DOW 30% would be an impressive winner and warrant the praise of being an outstanding newsletter. HELP. I do not understand.
