Top Stock Millionaires Winners and Losers of 2013 – Part I

A look back at companies we profiled during the year, and how they performed…

Another year has come and gone, and it was the usual roller coaster ride in the world of stocks.

Some sectors soared while others sputtered. Admittedly, my optimism for precious metals didn’t pan out as I had hoped. But on the whole, US equities had a record-setting year.

In part 1 of our year in review, I look back at how we fared on our calls up until the end of August. Stocks we covered during that time made an average gain of 9.94% with almost two-thirds of the 56 companies posting gains.
