Before we get to my 2024 stock picks, let's first recap the performance of my annual list of 10 stock selections for 2023. These delivered a positive return in a tumultuous year, but the benchmark S&P 500 Index did better: up 13.1% roughly a year since we published, compared with my collection's 7.9%. 

Still, for the past decade the average performance of my list was an annual gain of roughly 13%, including dividends, compared with less than 12% for the S&P. (Returns throughout the story are through October 31; my 2024 stock picks are in bold.)
