Get ready to laugh at/with catoismymotor3!
Yesterday I decided to create a new handle (catoismymotor3) with a new purpose: If I were to pull a Rip Van Winkle for the next five years which stocks would I want in my portfolio? I decided to keep the number small because in real life my portflio is limited to six companies, ones I know very well. I have four of those six represented in my picks. The additional six picks for caps are companies I think are solid as well but chose not to buy in real life. I know with only ten picks my caps score will never be high. But it will be fun to see what can be done with ten picks for five years. So in five years (12/22/09) you can either laugh with me or at me. So long as laughing occurs I'll be happy.
From time to time I'll broadcast my progress with catoismymotor3. And for those playing at home: Yes, catoismymotor2 was set up for a similar purpose, but I did more research into some companies and did not like what I saw long term. I was not very D about my DD with a couple. Bad Cato! So I decided to tweek the picks from 21 to 10 and keep a similar time table in mind.
