Last week, fellow Fool TheMiracleDJR penned (keyboarded?) a blog entry considering a Grown Up Portfolio.
That seemed like a great starting point for a Fool article and now it is one. I took a stab at screen criteria that fit a 'wise and mature' profile, sifted through the output and came up with seven candidates for a grown up portfolio. The seven stocks cover a diverse range of businesses and all are dividend-paying large caps with at least moderate growth prospects, reasonable payout ratios and 4 or 5-star CAPS ratings.
As with all screens, the results are just the starting point for further digging.
Please add your candidates for the grown up portfolio with a comment below or at the article.
And thanks to Dan for the idea.
