No. of Recommendations: 0
I really gave up on my 2005 challenge portfolio due to time constraints. It is seriously in the red as of today. I might have done worse or better if I had tended it--who knows? It is a clear warning that a portfolio that is not tended needs to have stop loss orders in place. I am willing to accept the booby prize if one is awarded.

I will take time in the near future to figure out what happened to the portfolio recommended a year ago by Smart Money. That's a much easier task since it just involves a few funds and, again, the interest on the money market account.
