Mike,

<<<Surprisingly enough, when I checked out the TMF's profiles, a lot of them own upwards of 15 or 20 stocks!!! I won't pick on anyone specifically, but one staffer owns 19 stocks; another owns 20 (and guiltily states that he's trying to get that number down to 12 or 15); another owns 25 stocks and 7 mutual funds!! And these are just a few examples.>>>

We are required to list all stocks that we have a beneficial interest in. Therefore, all stocks that a TMF spouse owns would be listed. Also and children's accounts. Add any co-holdings such as investment clubs or joint accounts with grandkids, neices, nephews, etc and it can add up fast.

Now, with that said -- Fools are human too. Sometimes we buy on a "hottip", sometimes we don't do all of the DD that we should, sometimes we get lax about keeping up with the companies we own. Sometimes we learn from our mistakes and sometimes we don't!

TMF Dawn
