How this portfolio works, we track and publish a model $50,000 account that you divide into five buckets of $10,000 each. Depending on the value of the share that determines how many shares you buy rounded down. For example, Facebook trading at $82.50 would allow you to buy 120 shares. It's entirely different when you look at a stock like Netflix trading at $441.69 you would've just purchased 22 shares of that stock. The idea is to keep the portfolio balanced percentage wise. For example, a 1% gain in Netflix would be the same as a 1% gain in Yahoo based on a $10,000 bucket. The idea is not to bet big on any one stock or to try to pick the big winner for the year. The reality is no one knows and this approach is conservative and has produced outstanding results in our research.
