  1. This data is very encouraging. However, I did not seem to outperform the index and have only one digit percentage gains. I either get in too late or sell too early. Any tips on how I can get my portfolio together? Is it too late to buy NI, Pgold, MBT, BPI, MA, LC, PX? or am I targetting the wrong stocks. Any suggestions will help a lot. Thanks.
