YTD Return: +57%
Investor: Charles Sizemore
Charles Sizemore isn’t just a Best Stocks contest veteran. He’s also quite used to almost being the winner.
Sizemore’s 2012 Best Stocks pick of Turkcell (TKC) was leading in the last few days of the contest before being edged in its final hours.
Heading into the last few weeks of the Best Stocks for 2013 contest, though, he’s hoping to edge out the leader and reclaim the title he won in 2011 with his Visa (V) pick. His pick of luxury automaker Daimler (DDAIF) has indeed been one of the best stocks of the year, boasting a mouth-watering 57% total return.
As impressive as that sounds, it’s enough to make DDAIF one of the best stocks of 2013 … but not the best stock.
