My Updown account was down 6.3% in May 2010 while the S&P 500 was down 8.2% so I beat the index by 1.9%.
For 2010 I'm up about 3.8% which is 4.5% better than the S&P 500.
Since starting in March 2008 I'm up 6.4% while the S&P 500 is down 18.1%.
The market was beat up pretty bad this past month.
I bought another chunk of FRE at $1.20 simply speculating that it will bounce up again. I also bought some NMM to add to the previous purchase of SB. Both are shipping companies with pretty high dividend rates.
