If you are at least an average dart thrower you could have made mad money blind folded the past half year.  With the S&P 500, NASDAQ, and Russell 2000 up between 30-35% in that time frame, it would have taken a very specialized skill set to pick losers since Bernanke declared war on bears at Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  But it was possible.... here are the unsavory stocks/ETFs that some unlucky souls may have embraced, missing out on the party. 

My target pool is some 2020 stocks/ETFs, with market cap over $300M, stock price over $10, and trading at least 200,000 shares a day.   Of that, only 3.5% of the entire market lost at least 5%...  72 shameful actors.  (to put it in perspective the best 72 stocks/ETFs in the same time frame gained between 113-400%)
