The Gisele Bündchen Stock Index

Though the Brazilian supermodel may be skinny, her investment returns are anything but.

That's the conclusion of finance blogger Fred Fuld of stockerblog.com. An index he concocted tracks the companies that Bündchen currently represents in ads or on the runway, Ralph Lauren, Italian jeweler Bulgari and Brazilian telecom giant Vivo Participacoes S.A.

Last year the index soared 29%, pulverizing the Dow's 6.5%. Okay, it's down 1.9% so far this year, but that's a mere fraction of the Dow's 5.6% drop. Can a mutual fund be far behind?
