For my real-money Motley Fool portfolio, I've already invested more than $5,000 in the past five months. So far I've had a good amount of success, and one of the best practices I've implemented is to always have a watchlist -- stocks I'm watching closely that have caught my eye for one reason or another. Continuing to update your theses and ideas is one of the greatest ways to make sure you always have a home run idea in the works.
Below are three stocks that I'm watching carefully, and I suggest you do, too.
