Here you can see the historical performance of all ideas I have written up in the public domain (Seeking Alpha; this blog; Sumzero), or discussed on public podcasts. Note that this is an attempted exhaustive list of all ideas discussed publicly from BEFORE the launch of Raper Capital Pro. (Current subscribers can access the tabs ‘Ongoing Ideas’ and ‘Recently Closed Ideas’ for performance of Pro ideas in these two categories).

The overall summary of performance data is as follows (as of end-April 2020):

That is, I have published 49 discrete investment ideas at a 76% win rate over 6 years, generating average gross returns of 28% and 41% on longs and shorts, respectively, and an average alpha contribution – that is, gross outperformance versus the MSCI All World Index – of 31%. The average holding period for ideas is ~9.5 months, suggesting a simple average annualized gross return per idea of ~43%.

Here you can see each discrete idea, with the company name, ticker, and all other relevant data, sorted by gross return. Note that all of these ideas remain time-stamped in the public domain (and can be sourced upon request).
