Checking in on the StockTwits Random Walk Index

Earlier this month we launched the StockTwits Random Walk Index as a way to have some fun and take a serendipitous look into the market and the community. We figured it was a good time to check in and see how whats going on in the portfolio:

Below is the performance:

As you can see the random-walk is outperforming the $SPX by 130bps and all of its “benchmarks”. Meanwhile UpsideTrader is apparently crushing the Random Walk Index so far this month.

Below is the current sector breakdown.

Given the heavy weighting  in the portfolio in Healthcare, its a bit surprising that the portfolio is outperforming.

The top 5 performers have been:

Liz Claiborne Inc $LIZ  +21.8%

Brush Engineered Materials $BW +21.09%

BJ Restaurants $BJRI +18.15%

Cheniere Energy Partners $CQP +16.61%

MF Global Holdings $MF +15.21%


The bottom 5 performers have been:
