Here we go again with another request for a change of strategy for a Motley Fool Portfolio. Why don't you just do what the Breaker Port is doing and add $50,000 every 6 months? Eventually the numbers are bound to look good. Look, I thought this was supposed to be a portfolio of stocks that we bought and then checked on again 10 years later. At least that was my understanding of Tom's intention when he established the Cash King Port years ago.

That was all well and good for you Motley Fool "analysts" when all stocks were rising. So, the economy is in a recession. Should that change the underlying philosophy of this portfolio? Hey Tom, 10 years isn't up yet...why are all of your portfolio manager's panicking. Could it be because your "analysts" have such depth of experience that they have never felt the impact of a market downturn before and don't know how to react?
