Where Are They Now?

On January 25, the following were the five best-performing stock holdings in Ohio State's multi-million dollar student-run portfolio, along with how the stocks have performed since then.

1. America Movil (AMX - Get Report): Up over 3%, recently trading in the $56-$57 range.

2. Hewlett-Packard (HPQ - Get Report): Up around 12%, until today (see " EDS Deal Is Deja Vu for H-P Investors").

SIM's Five Best-Performing Holdings -- Today

Short-term market fluctuations aside, three of the SIM students' previous top five positions make can be found in their current top five. According to SIM's Matt Falk, here is a snapshot of the group's current best-performing stocks (since their initial purchase).

1. Peabody: Up almost 100%.

2. America Movil: Up over 64%. (This stock is also owned by the University of North Carolina's Applied Investment Management program.)
