I actually only had 10 stocks beat the market this year and 12 stocks that trailed the market, yet my overall individual stock performance almost bested the market by over 10% points for 2019
Shopify led the way with a banner year almost tripling in value in 2019 and has now grown to become my 3rd largest individual holding.
Chipotle made the list for a 2nd year in a row and is completing its massive comeback after being on my biggest loser list in 2015,2016, and 2017.
Apple was actually a surprise for me being the largest company in the world but still growing at a small cap rate.
Actually with the exception of Shopify and Alteryx I would have looked at the rest of the stocks on the list as boring stable companies and here they are outpacing many of the supposed high flyer stocks in a banner year for the market.
Chipotle Mexican Grill +93.87%
Brookfield Infrastructure Partners +44.77%
As far as biggest losers there really is only one. BJ’s was down nearly 25% this year. Not sure what to say here – they are a small restaurant stock and account for 0.50% of my nestegg.
BJ’s Restaurants -24.94%
