Six months have passed since I opened my Rising Star portfolio. While it's been a challenge finding companies that fit my "motley" style of investing, it's also been a lot of fun. So far I've collected a nice diverse portfolio of businesses, each with their own story to tell. Even better, I still feel great about each one. Here's a quick review of each of my 10 holdings to date:
Houston Wire and Cable
White Mountains Insurance Group
As it stands, the market has had a pretty good run these past six months, and I'm still lagging. But this won't be measured in such a short time frame. We Fools take the long-term view, and I feel confident that as long as I continue seeking out excellent companies and buying them at fair prices, over time I'll do better than just fine. Follow me on Twitter to keep up with what's going on.
