    AAII’s Model Shadow Stock Portfolio has had a dramatic three months. The year-to-date return through November is 37.7%—up significantly from 14.3% year-to-date through August 31 as reported in the October AAII Journal. At the same time, the portfolio increased its lead over the S&P 500 and other indexes. Recent and cumulative results are shown in Figure 1. In addition, I thought you might like to see how the Shadow Stock Portfolio compares to subscription-based advisory services, and an analysis is shown in the box below.
