Tracking the fund managers' picks
At Livewire Live, each Australian fund manager panellist was asked to make a stock pick for the coming year. We've built a Sharesight portfolio with their picks (and the picks from last year). Each buy trade was made the day of their pick and we assumed $10,000 invested in each company inclusive of brokerage costs. All dividends are reinvested.
The picks from 2015 have had a full year to perform, and the managers made excellent calls. Total (annualised) return is 32.43%, or a $10,062.31 gain:
We'll keep track of the portfolio's performance versus the STW, which tracks the ASX200. For the whole portfolios, the fund managers have outperformed the benchmark, 11.20% vs. -1.89% over the past 12 months (note: our benchmarking feature assumes that you’d invested equal amounts of money in both for the duration of the reporting period - more on this can be found here).
Too early to assess performance on the entire portfolio, but we'll keep track and post periodic performance updates.
