In order to justify the effort of selecting individual stocks, it's worth striving to beat the returns from a market index fund. But the risk of stock picking is that you will likely buy under-performing companies. Unfortunately, that's been the case for longer term Insurance Australia Group Limited (ASX:IAG) shareholders, since the share price is down 34% in the last three years, falling well short of the market return of around 25%. The more recent news is of little comfort, with the share price down 31% in a year. It's down 2.2% in the last seven days.
