Who’s better positioned for the rest of the year?


The 2 for 1 Index® has only dipped slightly (-1.0%) so far in 2016. The S&P 500 has lost over 5%. When the pendulum swings back to the positive, where would you rather be starting from?


Nike (NKE) the latest add to the 2 for 1 Index

SwooshNike, Inc. (NKE) is the company most recently added to the 2 for 1 Index®. NKE replaced American States Water (AWR) on February 12, 2016. Nike announced its split back in November but was not added to the Index at that time because of its relatively pricey PE and other valuation metrics. As a result of the market pullback, Nike came to an acceptable price point and became February’s selection for the 2 for 1 Index.


No one likes to see their portfolio go down but, because it went down less than the broad indexes, there is some consolation in the fact that we have still beaten the market. The 2 for 1 Index dropped about 3% vs. the broad market’s decline of over 5% over the 1st month of 2016. The hope is that this higher launching pad will allow 2 for 1 to take off and keep well ahead of the market for the rest of the year and beyond.Jan 2016


Three Promising Splits

zipperThere have been three 2 for 1 split announcements so far in November, Nike (NKE), Edwards Lifesicences (EW), and Hormel Foods (HRL), offering up a good selection for the monthly update of the 2 for 1 Index® on December 18th. The 2 for 1 Index, the basis for the Stock Split Index Fund (TOFR), is up 4.9% so far, YTD.
