Note this 2014 portfolio is the worst portfolio I have ever compiled.  I believe the fault lies in chasing yield.   This 2014 portfolio is heavily weighted toward energy and it is a small portfolio with only 18 stocks.  The portfolio holds over $6,000 in cash from buy outs.  I do not reinvest these funds so that I can track performance easily.
