    I’m working on an article about c-stores chains and the pursuance of master limited partnerships and have a few questions if you have a few minutes. My email is included if you want to contact me directly

  3. Kemper,

    An excellent question, I have heard from many parties that model portfolios would be something that people would find interesting (any Tweets, info, etc. about my trades are purely for information purposes only and should NEVER be considered an endorsement by me to make a similar trade). I have construction and tracking of model portfolios on my long to do list and have done some digging around to try and find a way that someone external would be doing the model portfolio tracking for credibility purposes and have come across I would love to hear anyone’s thoughts or feedback regarding using Covestor (or any similar websites to check out as well). Thanks for your question.

    after looking at your website it appears that you provide a lot of information but no model portfolios to follow? But you blog about your positions which confuses me.
