The Long Portfolio

I’ve had some requests to reveal my full long stock portfolio.

music selection:  “Up All Night” — Hinder

weigh-in:  215.4 +1.8

A large portion of my strategy relies on buy and hold high yield investments.  This is mostly in the form of Closed End Funds (CEF) and Master Limited Partnerships (MLP).  This is how I am able to make most of my budget without needing to trade.  That is an important element because sometimes the market isn’t offering any favorable trades and I need to sit on my hands waiting for a fat pitch.

    With a long portfolio, mixed with junk bonds and then short selling on some stock it seems to me as you get your inspiration form the hedge fund model of Alfred Jones with some Buffett thrown in for good measure.

      Haha. I find inspiration from lots of places and go where the market is rich.

    Hey Liz King!

    Kind of a loaded question but how do these names even come up on your radar? What type of DD are you conducting on these names?

    It’s amazing how your portfolio has grown so fast, despite net withdraws!

      Some come from my own screens and others come from for pay subscription services I have. I like Stansberry products best.

      The market has certainly been treating me well!
