The Mac Observer
Stock Watch Virtual Portfolio

Last Updated: 12/29/00, 3:28:51 PM

In our never-ending quest for knowledge, the Mac Observer is announcing an "on paper" stock portfolio. We are opening an imaginary trading account with a faux 100,000 bucks and naming it The Mac Observer High Tech Aggressive Growth Stock Portfolio, or the Stock Watch Virtual Portfolio for short. Our goal is to achieve high growth within various technology sectors.

Of course, we aren't playing with real money and our decision to buy or sell a stock should be in no way construed as a recommendation for you to do the same with real money. We'll announce our buying and selling plans in advance so you'll know we aren't picking our exit and entry points after the fact.

Although we expect to do some trading and alter our opinion when new data warrants it, our goal is long term and we don't plan on daytrading or even following microtrends. In order to keep it simple we won't be shorting any stocks or playing the options market either, but we are going to play by all the rules of a regular investment portfolio.

However, the Mac Observer Portfolio isn't entirely free of ideological associations. After all we are a Mac-centric web site and proud of it.
