The Official Fumbled Returns NFL Stock Portfolio is not made up of companies who have sports related products, or sponsorships, but rather stocks that have symbols which look like they could represent a particular team.
This is my version of the monkey throwing darts theory of picking stocks and it seems to be doing quite well.
As one might imagine, it was a bit difficult to actually come up with a symbol which could be easily related to an NFL franchise abbreviation or location. But I did manage to come up with one for each team. In some cases I had to resort to team owners or franchise players and (just in case you don’t like the one I picked for your team) I have alternate names listed as well.
All selected stock names count towards the average return for the watch list.
The Fumbled Returns NFL watch list is actually a diverse group of stocks, mutual funds and ETF’s and as you will see below has handedly beaten the averages over the past two years.
