american flag 10 Stocks for an All American PortfolioAs we celebrate our country’s independence with grilling, family and fireworks later this week, we also should take time to acknowledge the companies that help keep our economy rolling.

If you’re not already proud to be an American, this portfolio sure should make your patriotic blood start pumping.
