As mentioned before, the objective of the portfolio was to beat the S&P 500 consistently over time. Modern finance subscribe to the theory that over time stocks offer superior returns - that being the case, as long as you outperform the benchmark index, you will register superior long term performance. Hence it is useful to look at the performance relative to the S&P 500. Over the last 3 months, the fund managed to outperform the S&P 500 by 0.17%; over the past 6 months the outperformance was more pronounced by 20.36% (and these are in percentage points); and over the last 12 months, the outperformance was by 50.47%.

The Salvador Fund line in orange. The m100 line is the aggregate performance tracking the top 100 funds in Marketocracy. The comparison is stark but to be fair, this portfolio will need another 1.5 years before we can safely say its a superior long term performer.
