During the initial years of my investing education, I used to pick individual stocks. If I get 2% gain in few stocks, I was happy. But, it is amazing to see the portfolio of 28 stocks provided an average return of 2.47% in one day. Overall, the portfolio returned 26.44% in 7 and 1/2 months! Yes, we should be happy..More than twice the S&P 500 return during the same time..
