Will it be the buy-and-hold AAPL investor? Or will it be me Million-Dollar Mulligan investors with Pfizer?
Smart money would certainly have to go with the "Mulligan Maniacs" as even at the current 47.2K per point, an expected minimum four-point gain in the stock in 2011 would mean almost 190K in profits on an investment valued at 277K at the start of the year.
That would be a percentage profit of nearly 70% and in order to exceed that, AAPL which started the year as a $322 number would have to get to nearly $550.
As of today's close, the Mulligan is up by 9.4% year to date ($276,685 to an all-time high of $302,710). AAPL at about $347 after hours is up around 8% for 2011 so far.
Interesting stuff, isn't it? Looking at the gain YTD, I will be up 75% by the end of the year plus dividends. That is with a diversified equity portfolio. Of course, the fixed return investments will drag me down a bit. Yep, a huge gain is in the bag.
