As a novice investor, I try to build a diversified portfolio of stocks based on some rudimentary analysis, investment newsletter choices and a little gut feeling
Here's a look at my portfolio as of the close of the markets June 1.
A number of these stocks have taken a brutal beating over the past several weeks. Timberland is not 31 % off its high. Dolby, down nearly 10 %. Boston beer is off 12 % this month, and National Presto is down some 20 % since March 1.
That said, I like this collection of stocks moving forward.
I dumped all my Chinese stocks out of worry over recent frauds, shifting much of that money into AAPL and BRK.B.
What do you think? Anything you would add? Subtract?
I've just started sharing some of my investing experience, here, at other community sites and at stocksnovice.blogspot.com.
