I love the midpoint of the year. The summer officially begins, I celebrate my girls' birthdays and we still have plenty of time to follow through with those resolutions we made at the beginning of the year.So let's all make a commitment to start getting to work on time, stop drinking in the middle of the week and make more time to analyze our investment portfolios. Now is a great time for a midyear portfolio review. But remember, we don't live in a stagnant world. If you only visit your portfolio two or three times a year, you'll have missed the boat 10 times over. That's because each month brings new quandaries. At this point we're dealing with a precarious housing market, rising interest rates and that nut in North Korea. And while consumer spending hasn't really been hurt yet from the oil and interest rate run-ups, the economy clearly has a few kinks to work through in the upcoming months. So make a vow to look at your portfolio statements at least once a month. While you don't want to do any panic buying or selling, you do need to know where you stand.
