And please check out my analysis of the holdings of the Claymore/Clear Spin-off ETF (CSD) in the Stockpickr Portfolio of the Day. Spinoffs of public companies are often artificially sold off and create attractive buying opportunities. The Claymore ETF is fascinating, but I think you can do even better by picking and choosing the best spinoffs in their index.


Note: If you have an idea for an interesting portfolio, complete with good analysis, throw it up on Stockpickr, send me the link, and start your own financial blog there.
