My best and worst stocks in 2019

My best and worst stocks in 2019

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.

Shopify +187.17%
Chipotle Mexican Grill +93.87%
Apple +86.16%
Alteryx +68.27%
Brookfield Infrastructure Partners +44.77%
Costco +44.28%

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%
