We spend a lot of time making predictions, so I thought it would be an interesting and informational exercise to perform follow-up and share sales data from the Holiday 2014 season on how some sets actually performed.
I'm still crunching some numbers but decided not to wait to make this initial post so people could go off and do their own analysis. Are your records good enough to contribute?
I'm using 10/1/14 - 12/31/14. For simplicity, I'm ignoring fees and I'm also ignoring the value of freebies, reward points, etc. I'll post:
1. profit $
2. my ROI %
3. my Annualized ROI %
4. profit $ over MSRP
5. ROI on MSRP %
6. Annualized ROI on MSRP %
Before I post my data, I'll post just the names of the 5 best, 5 median, and 5 worst performing sets and see if people can put them in the proper categories without research.
