Please note this page details our actual portfolio, warts and all, and will be updated monthly.  Changes made after the date shown at the top of the page are not reflected until the end of the month.  Also, the portfolio's performance may not be truly reflected as I'm too lazy to devise a system to measure each stock against the market at the time of entry as opposed to YTD. Finally, the portfolio as shown does not mirror our actual allocation. The stocks are shown here equal-weighted while our portfolio has different weightings as well as multiple buy points for some stocks as we average down. I have listed our initial entry point on this web page but our actual positions may have a lower or higher cost basis and thus our returns may differ substantially, hopefully to the upside!  Included are our real-world cash balance and IRR for reference.
