( Experimental Notes to Myself )

All the stocks you will ever need? A bold statement. There are tens of thousands of stocks plus thousands of mutual funds. You will not want to have anything to do with most of them. Of the remainder, you need only a few good stocks for good profits.
Here, there are one hundred stocks to choose from. (More about them inside.) These stock picks are for the most part the largest, most visible, widely held, and liquid common stocks in the world. If you cannot make money in them, it is hard how to see how you will consistently harvest profits anywhere else.
The stocks are sorted into three portfolios . They cover the all-encompassing spectrum of growth stocks, value stocks, and "new era" stocks, always valid measures of investment philosophy in all phases of stock-market price behavior, past, present, and future.
- CLASSIC PORTFOLIO
- Blue Chip Stocks   Large, well established, longstanding, experienced companies which make products or services people use every day or provide the materials that go into these products
- PARADIGM 2000 PORTFOLIO
- Strong Growth Stocks   Large, widely held, high-technology companies, well established,
typically in the strongest growth sectors of the economy, especially
information software, hardware, and biotechnology
- INTERNET SET
- Internet Stocks   These are the largest internet companies with the most liquidity which have been around long enough to observe with some measure of confidence in their ability to grow revenues--(profits come later I'm told)
- ...with each stock portfolio containing the three prominent index "exchange traded funds" plus a proxy for the Internet
- Nasdaq-100 Index (symbol QQQQ), S&P500 Composite Stock Index (SPY), and the Dow-Jones Industrial Average (DIA) for comparisons and possible investing or speculating--and the Internet HOLDRs Trust (HHH)
The stock portfolios are adaptive to changing conditions. Stocks are replaced periodically when they no longer meet selection criteria or when their companies are merged or acquired. Thus, these hundred stocks continually represent the best, useable, continuing expression of growth, value, and fad in each era as the current era undergoes morphogenesis from predecessor eras.
As always when encountering a new process or methodology which you think you might want to use, caution and practice are requisite. And more caution and more practice.
For effective use, the site requires work and judgment--yours. I supply some of the easy labor. The rest is up to you. The results you get are yours--entirely.
These pages are really my notes to myself put on public view. They are ongoing research in the continual development of tools and methods that have superior chances of profitability.
Read "How to Use This Site" first, before you look at the portfolios. Also, before you use anything in the site, you must read and agree with the "Waiver." (Both these pages are accessible in the blue Contents column to the left.)
Site data are complete through the Friday prior to the date shown at top left after weekend processing is usually finished by 5:00 p.m. on Sundays, Eastern Time.
The Index/Glossary contains footnotes not appearing on the main pages and other information which you may find useful in your pursuit of stocks and stock profits. (As Don Worden put it, "Others will find insights that will subtly change the way they look at the market." --The Worden Report, May 25, 2001 in TC2000)
