Back in December 2013 I asked could a couple of monkeys.. ahem… my kids pick a winning stock portfolio in this market?
I asked my kids (ages 11 and 14) to pick out 10 stocks and we would track them. They were free to pick any stocks they wanted and we would see how they would do.
At the end of December, I posted an update on how they were doing. You can see it here: Monkey Portfolio Update
After the nice pop the markets saw on Friday, I thought it would be a good time to provide an update.
Here is a screenshot from google finance showing the market performance since inception of the portfolios.

Monkey Portfolio 2
* please note I have tried my best to reflect the Google stock split on Google portfolios
In conclusion my kids are stock picking dynamos!
At the end of the year , I will wind up these imaginary portfolios and we will do it all again – but this time I will join in to provide further proof that my kids are smarter than I am.
Thanks for visiting.
