In conclusion, these five great companies continue to be strong and well positioned in their industries. With the fourth year closing in, I continue to believe that the portfolio as a whole will continue to out-perform the S&P 500.
Special note: I have been questioned many times from my followers and readers on how exactly can a small investor invest in these five stocks when the prices of the shares are so high. The simple solution is to use the investment services of Motif Investing, where a small investor can create their own portfolio of up to 30 stocks with a minimum investment of $250.
