We were audited by the State of Wisconsin, and for the umpteenth audit by various regulatory authorities, questions were raised about whether the composition of the Model Portfolio represented the activity in all accounts we manage.  In order to eliminate questioning in future regulatory audits (we are too old to deal with them) we will no longer present the Model Portfolio. Over 31 years The Model grew from $50,000 to $773,000. That is a compound rate of return of 9.23%.

PAST PERFORMANCE OVER 31 YEARS IS NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE OVER 31 YEARS - WE'D BE 102.

The market value of the Model Portfolio is net of advisory fees, brokerage commissions and other related expenses. Model Portfolio results reflect reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. The Model Portfolio column is the overall return of the portfolio for the period shown.



Past performance is not indicative of future results. Other methods may produce different results for individual portfolios and for different periods and may vary depending on market conditions and the composition of an individual portfolio. Care should be used when comparing these results to those published by other investment advisors, other investment vehicles and unmanaged indices due to possible differences in calculation methods. A list of all recommendations made by Lemley, Yarling Management Co. for the preceding one-year period is available upon request.
