1st Place – Barron’s Ten Stocks for 2013 are doing well, increasing from an initial value of $10,000 to the current value of $11,793. Top stocks in the group are Western Digital and Marathon Petroleum.
2nd Place – Auggie comes in at a strong number two, with a value of $11,536. Top performers are Best Buy and Yelp (who would have guessed that?).
3rd Place – The very simple and inexpensive Vanguard Growth fund is in third place, with a value of $10,936.
