My Track Record

Dear Reader,
 
I do know it is impossible to convince you about my track record for the years before August 2012, because my past stock picks are not publicly available. However, I have been writing for SeekingAlpha since late 2012, using the alias "Value Digger". As such, you can confirm my track record from August 2012 to May 2014, by reading my SA articles and comments. 
 
An indicative sample of this track record is shown below. To confirm all the calls presented below, you can go to my SA profile and click on "Articles". By accessing the archive of my SA articles, you can easily find all the stock picks mentioned below, along with the corresponding articles and dates.
 
Given that S&P rose 20% in 2013, I have omitted the calls (bullish and bearish) that have yielded less than 20% from January 2013 to H1 2014, to focus on the stocks that have outperformed the market.
