Top Performers in Morningstar's Four Stock Portfolios
We look at the stocks with the best 2006 performance in each portfolio.
For those of you who don't know, Morningstar runs four stock model portfolios that appear in our newsletters, StockInvestor, DividendInvestor, and GrowthInvestor. The portfolios rely on the research produced by our team of 95 stock analysts--their fair value estimates, moat ratings, company visits, etc.--allowing our portfolio managers to whittle down our 1,800-stock coverage universe to a shortlist of the most attractive stocks.
Below we take a look at the stock in each portfolio that has posted the best return so far in 2006. The purpose isn't to toot our own horn--we have our share of losers, and our investment horizon is far longer than nine and a half months. But each of these stocks illustrates a nice lesson.
