We rebalance the Carefree Cloud Port once a year at the end of the year.
We keep it simple. We sell everything and start the new year fresh by using
the cash received to buy all new positions. This sounds like a lot of work,
but it only took me 1/2 hour. My broker's feature of fractional shares makes it easy.

We construct the Carefree Cloud Port with 50 equal weighted positions. Each position
has a weight of 2%. We choose the 50 stocks from the EMCLOUD Index by scoring
each stock by revenue growth and free cash flow margin. We select the 50 with the
highest combined score.

So, on Friday 12/31/2021, we sold 46 positions. We added this cash to the cash
we received from the sale of 4 firms that were acquired during the year. We used
this total cash to buy 50 new positions from the EMCLOUD Index. Those 50 stocks
will make up the Carefree Cloud Port going forward from 1/1/2022. The 50 stocks and
purchase prices are listed below.

This is a real-money port. However, a 100% permanent loss here wouldn't affect
my retirement or other financial goals one bit. In other words, heads I win, tails
I get a flesh wound, but it doesn't kill me. That's the real reason this portfolio
is carefree, not just because there's no work or study or skill required.

Happy New Year!
