Even though I am holding only longterm stocks right now, I still keep up with my portfolio for learning purposes.
Today my $8,100 portfolio increased by $231 just today. After owning the stock for only a few days, Fortune Brands (FO) has given me a 10% return. I am holding it longterm so there will be no selling for now.
Dynegy (DYN) and Syntel (SYNT) were both in the red, but have recently both gained back big time, especially Dynegy. General Electric (GE) has been rising steadily.
