The All-Over-the-Map Stock Portfolio
We don’t claim to be stock-market swamis, but we do speak the language of travel. So just for a fling, we put together a mythical stock portfolio composed of 10 companies that share the names of cities. We’ll invest 500 imaginary bucks in each stock and report our results each quarter. Remember this is strictly for amusement purposes; consult your stockbroker (and shrink) before investing real money here.
