1. Do a better job on my watchlist. Cannot just put names on a spreadsheet and track weekly.
Have to follow a plan. Simple one is just having two columns (Yellow - starter position,
Green- buy). Even just one column as a reference point.
2. Start my own "Shipping index" and benchmark vs SEA, own picks
3. Expand the number of holdings in the port. Been thinking about this and I think I have a way
of getting there. Decide on a size, every time a position drops below that size, it doesn't
count as a pick. To avoid over-accumulation of non-picks, figure out a percentage, 10% makes
sense for 2013. Right now, using 1% as the guideline, I have 21 picks and 9 non-picks
