For me at least, much of the last 15 years can be summed up in two figures. The first – 3 – is the number of kids I have acquired over the period. The second – 486 – is how many Buy recommendations Intelligent Investor made between June 2001 and June 2016. I’m grateful those two numbers are not reversed. Life is tricky enough.
To mark the 15th anniversary of the launch of our model Growth and Equity Income portfolios and our latest recommendations report, each fortnight over the next few months I’m going to examine a recommendation from the period.
