Intel, Compounding Experience, Advice For New Investors, Yankees and Sunk Costs, Certainty, and East Coast Asset Management 3Q Letter

I forgot to mention Intel (INTC) in yesterdays portfolio update and that I still own stock in the company.  It falls in the bought before doing valuation category and it is a company I plan to own for years unless I find something better, or its business deteriorates.

Now that I have gotten rid of all the companies that I planned to get rid of, later today I am going to add a page to the site that lists what I hold in my current portfolio and will update the page anytime I buy or sell stock in another company.
