10 Stocks for an All-American Portfolio

These names can make patriotism profitable

#5 IndependenceAs 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.

And I don’t mean companies that just seem all-American. Even Real America Index member Coca-Cola (KO) and Yum Brands‘ (YUM) KFC get huge chunks of revenue overseas despite their red-white-and-blue branding, while more than a third of S&P 500 sales overall come from international markets.

Instead, I’m talking about companies that get most, if not all, of their sales right here in the homeland.

Don’t worry: We sorted through the S&P 500 and picked one company from each sector that fits the bill for you. The resulting portfolio is an impressive pile of homegrown names with combined year-to-date gains of 21% — better than the broader market. If you’re not already proud to be an American, this portfolio sure should make your patriotic blood start pumping.
