I originally setup the 10 stocks for 10 years portfolio in April of 2005. In order to track performance I setup a marketocracy portfolio but had to make some adjustment to comply with the diversification rules. In December of 2006 I announced a new 11 stocks for the next 10 years (9 are the same, I dropped First Data Corporation, which had split into 2 companies and added Tesco and Yahoo.
The marketocracy portfolio won’t let me by Tesco so I don’t have it in that portfolio though I want to and will add it if they let me. I also have not sold Western Union of First Data (the companies resulting from the split of First Data). I still find them reasonable investments, just at this time would not buy them for the next 10 years (but for reasons such as not being able to buy Tesco and diversity rules for Marketocracy I am keeping them for now).
At this time the stocks in the marketocracy portfolio in order of returns – Google (116% return, 15% of the portfolio), PetroChina (88%, 7%), Toyota (85%, 12%), Templeton Dragon Fund (69%, 12%), Cisco (56%, 6%), Amazon (23%, 4%), Yahoo (2%, 4%), British Petroleum (3%, -3%), Intel (3%, -11%), Dell (6%, -32%). The split First Data is probably up about 20% and combined they are 4% of the portfolio. I also have under 2% positions in a couple of stocks and about 15% in cash. I occasionally purchase or sell some amounts (I have sold a small portion of Templeton Dragon Fund and bought some Amazon, Dell, Intel and Yahoo in the last few month). I will sell First Data and or Western Union if the price increases enough. I would also like to find an energy company I like to hold in addition to PetroChina (and would likely sell BP if I find one I like for the long term).
