1990
The NZ stockmarket and economy remain depressed, but we look for depressed stocks.  Our portfolio slips -37.8% in value.
Salmond Smith-Biolab Ltd 17-07-90 82* 05-12-95 185 51.0   +188
Carter Holt 1992 Option 11-09-90 16* 11-06-91 6 Nil   -63
Transmark Corporation 11-09-90 166* 12-11-96 190 63.9   +53
 
1991
The NZ stockmarket starts to recover. Many investments perform well, including NZ Refining which becomes our first ten-bagger (i.e. our shares increase 10-fold in value). We successfully identify more under-valued shares which appreciate strongly in 1991 - and which become big winners in future years. During 1991, our portfolio more than doubles in value, up +102.0%.
Owens Group Limited 12-03-91 47* 10-10-00 100 81.8   +287

Regal Salmon Limited 16-07-91 41* 14-05-96 18 3.9   -47
 
1992
Smaller companies and growth shares rise strongly - lifting our portfolio +77.0% during 1992. We find a few more big winners to (i.e. Steel & Tube, Radio Works) add to our portfolio!
Steel & Tube Holdings 14-01-92 167* 14-05-96 772 167.0   +462
Apple Fields Limited 10-03-92 237 10-10-00 7 10.0   -93

1993
Smaller shares continue to rally and NZ Refining becomes a 20-bagger. At higher prices it is difficult to identify new recommendations that yield future profits.  Our portfolio gains +22.5%.

1994
We enter the Australia stockmarket - at just the wrong time! Smaller company shares fall from favour. Our new recommendations initially decline in value.  Overall our portfolio is down -21.2%.

Cavalier Corporation 05-12-95 156*      282.0   73 +128
 
1996
Stockmarkets remain flat, but our Australian shares continue to decline: Stanilite Pacific goes bust. Central Equity and JNA fall 50% (later to recovery strongly)! This, however, is the ideal time to be buying into depressed Australian shares, so we sell NZ Refining for a +3,330% gain (i.e. a $10,000 investment would have grown to $343,000) and use this money to add to new and existing shareholdings at depressed prices.  Our Recommended Portfolio gains +15.4% during 1996.

1998
A wonderful year! The NZ market fell and Australia went up only a little - but our shares soared! Cavalier, Michael Hill, Radio Otago rose strongly. JNA was taken over at A$3.75 - with that money re-invested into Flight Centre, Toll Holdings and Vision Systems.  Portfolio appreciates +20.8% for the year.
