Our Winter Portfolios: Still profitable and beating the benchmark

February is typically a good month for stocks – the four-best month of the year, according to the Stock Market Almanac – so a 3.8% decline this time was a shock. However, our pair of winter portfolios not only remain in the money, but are also thrashing the benchmark index. Add in dividends earned, and the margin of outperformance is greater still.
