*The WA50 (Washington Index of 50 stocks) is a mathematical experiment of ours, not an ETF or security. We selected 50 Washington-based companies, weighted their various stock prices by market cap, and set their collective value at 2000.00 as of start of day January 1, 2017, in order to approximate general growth. We are not a broker, so these values are not live-streaming.
We re-analyze the stock prices each month. Performance so far: start of year 2000.00, end of Jan 2027.86, end of Feb 2084.60, end of Mar 2092.38.
