Performance

Since inception on October 19, 2004, the rate of return for the Special Situations Real Money Portfolio has been 23.5% APY. This is a substantial improvement from what I reported earlier this year, 12.1 APY. The quick turnarounds with AutoNation, PVC Container, and Major Automotive definitely juiced my returns. While not quite as safe as putting my son’s college money in EmigrantDirect’s 4.5 % Savings Account, these relatively low risk special situations produce some great returns.

I maintain a list of these opportunities over in Contributor’s Corner. For a small contribution, you can gain access to the latest information in this premium section of Fat Pitch Financials.
