Beatles Stock Index Outperforms S&P 500 by 7.5 percentage points!

Exactly one month ago yesterday, I reported on ways to invest in the Beatles through companies related to the Beatles and their songs. Several stocks were mentioned in the article, including Apple (AAPL), Starbucks (SBUX), Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. (LYV), and Sony (SNE), along with several other companies.

If you had invested an equal dollar amount in each of those companies, your account would be up as of yesterday's close, by an amazing 11.7% in only one month. If you invested that same total amount in the S&P 500 (to give an apples to apple comparison - no pun intended), your account would only be up by only 4.1%. So the Beatles Stock Index outperformed S&P 500 by an amazing 7.5 percentage points! You would have achieved almost twice the return from 'buying the Beatles.'

For a list of all the stocks in the Beatles portfolio, which can be downloaded, sorted, and updated, go to WallStreetNewsNetwork.com.
