About nine months ago I remarked that it would be rather cool to track the performance of stocks recommended in spam. It seems that someone has beaten me to it – spamstocktracker.com ran throughout May and June of this year. He bought 37 stocks, of which only three were up at the end of the period, by 4%, 8% and 124% (hey, there’s occasionally a good apple in the barrel. These are real companies, after all). His total loss was 45% – which isn’t bad, I’d have actually expected worse.
