Yesterday, Caterpillar announced much better results than expected and its stock price rose by nearly 8%.

I half-jokingly tweeted that a smart investor would look carefully at any company that the anti-Israel idiots want to boycott, because it might make a great investment.

So I decided to test my theory.

Here are all of the publicly traded companies I could find listed on the BDSList.org site, and their stock prices from a year ago and today, with the percentage gain or loss. (Some are only listed on the Tel Aviv Exchange.)

Company 4/27/2016 4/25/2017 % Gain/Loss
Afcon  114.7 165.8 45%
Bank HaPoalim 26.25 31.35 19%
Bank Leumi 13.76 17.25 25%
Caterpillar 78.68 104.42 33%
Elbit 100.21 119.19 19%
Hewlett Packard 12.76 18.61 46%
Motorola Solutions 76.04 85.39 12%
Sodastream 13.9 55.34 298%
Teva 56.23 30.76 -45%
AVERAGE 50%

If you would have invested equal amounts in all these companies a year ago, you would have made an astounding 50% profit. (The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 16% in that time period. The top funds rated by Kiplinger for the past year made about 30%.)

It is every investor's dream to beat the market. Thanks to BDS, now we can! (And Sodastream, the one company BDS hates the most, has done unbelievably well!)

By the way, this "BDS Fund" also way outperformed the Israel-specific funds I checked out for the past twelve months, so the BDS method of stock picking is truly amazing.

If anyone wants to hire me as manager of their EoZ BDS Mutual Fund, let me know!


(I probably need to add the disclaimer that Past Performance Is Not An Indicator Of Future Results)
