This is Week 2 of the 2nd year of the fund’s existence and it has already increased $3,851.76 of the $30,000 goal for the entire year. The $8,210.52 increase over Week 1’s ending balance reflects the significant change related to both pools tied to the market’s recovery during the same time period. The DOW Jones Industrial Average increased 6.115% during this past week and the Investment Fund increased 8.585% during the same time period.
The differential is tied to the quality of the underlying investments. Per the fundamentals of value investing, when the market recovers, value investment stocks recover at a faster pace.
