You Really Want To Pick Stocks? Think About Following These Guys


There’s a market-stomping mutual fund you’ve probably never heard of. 

Between 1970 and March 31, 2014, it averaged a 14.67 percent annualized return. 

That will double your money about every five years.

Those investing $10,000 at its inception would have nearly $4 million today. 

It’s called the Sequoia Fund. 

It walloped the S&P 500 by nearly 4 percent annually for 44 years. Studies prove the S&P 500 outperforms most stock pickers. 

But what about the Sequoia fund and Warren Buffett?

If they can do it, why can’t you? I won’t say it’s impossible.  But beating the market requires brilliance and more than a few hidden horseshoes.

    I’m think this fund has been closed to the general public for over a year.

    Hi Andrew,

    I just checked the Fund’s prospectus online. The firm’s choice of using S&P 500 Index as the benchmark does not truly reflect the manager’s investment process. The Fund may invest in securities in any Market Cap. (S&P 500 is strictly a large-cap BM). MER at 1.00% seems to be very high given the portfolio’s extremely low turnover rate.
