A top stock picker constantly beats the market over a long period of time. Investment guru Warren Buffett would not be the world’s third richest person and the world’s top stock picker if he was not the best at what he does, which is stock selection. Yet there are different opinions on who is actually the top stock picker in history. Some would argue Peter Lynch of the Magellan Fund is the top stock picker in history, due to his steady returns. Others might say the top stock picker is Georges Soros, who made a billion overnight betting on the British pound. The one overriding factor in determining the top stock picker is the person’s consistency and ability to beat the market.
