Alpesh Performance Figures

Performance is based on a 12 month holding period. No account is made of spreads, dealing costs or dividends. Stocks are sold if their closing price falls 25% from the start price. Sold stocks are assigned a performance of -25%.

Following Alpesh Patel Special Edition, an initial investment of £1,000 in 2004 would have compounded to £6,354 by the end of 2016 - an impressive 535% return in just 13 years.

By contrast, the same £1,000 invested in a FTSE All-Share tracker fund would have yielded a profit of just £714 over the same 13 year period (a 71% gain).
