There has been a bit of chatter on the Mentor forum about the philosophy of buying blue chip portfolios so I thought I would generate a simple table of the maximum drawdown experienced by each of the ASX 20 since 2000.
As you can see the drawdowns are for the most part horrendous with MQG the worst at 82% and WOW the best at 32.7%. Although in this context best and worst are relative. I might do some further work on what a portfolio of these would look like with a simple trading simple versus simply buying and holding them. I know what the answer will be, but its always fun.
