In the three months since I unveiled this equal-weighted "anti-value" portfolio, the group -- which includes Amazon (AMZN)AMZN, Facebook (FB)FB, LinkedIn (LNKD)LNKD, Netflix (NFLX)NFLX
Salesforce.com (CRM)CRM and Twitter (TWTR)TWTR-- is down 3.6%. Meanwhile, despite a choppy ride, the S&P 500 is up 2.6%, and the Nasdaq Composite has risen 3.2%.
Salesforce.com (+7%), and Facebook (+18%) are the only stocks in positive territory during that period.
While three months is but a day to some investors, including yours truly, the point of this exercise is to track the path of the most exciting, well-covered, cult-like, priced-for-perfection stocks in the market today. These are the companies that are creating a buzz among investors and getting loads of press coverage.
