Portfolio Manager

David Sharek is stock portfolio manager for Shareks Stock Portfolios and founder of The School of Hard Stocks.

Since 2003, Sharek’s Growth Stock Portfolio has averaged a 12% return to its investors (after fees) vs. 8% in the S&P 500. 

Through 2018, $100,000 invested in the Growth Portfolio at inception would have made a profit of $235,000 vs. $185,000 in the S&P 500 during that same time.

David has written more than 2500 stock research reports on the School of Hard Stocks. Utilizing the research posted here in this site, David manages three stock portfolios for his investors: Growth Stock Portfolio, Aggressive Growth Portfolio, and Conservative Stock Portfolio. 

Before Sharek takes a new position in a stock — or sells out of a stock — a research report stating so is posted before trades are entered, although positions are often increased or reduced without notification (as he’s managing the portfolios).  

David Sharek has posted four years of +40% returns in his 16 year career as a stock portfolio manager.
