Download chapter one of The Little Book That Builds Wealth: Economic Moats

Do the stock holdings in your portfolio have economic moats? Do they have wide moats, narrow moats, or none at all? Click the Morningstar Moat Finder tab above and enter the ticker of a company or stock holding you wish to research. You'll instantly see the rating Morningstar stock analysts have assigned the company.

Click the D-I-Y Moat Calculator tab above and jump in the shoes of a Morningstar Analyst. Apply what you've learned from Pat Dorsey in Little Book That Builds Wealth and test your own skills at identifying whether or not a company has a sustainable moat.

The Knockout Formula for Finding Great Investments
Just as moats were dug around medieval castles to keep the opposition at bay, economic moats protect the high returns on capital enjoyed by the world's best companies. If you can identify companies that have moats, and you can purchase their shares at reasonable prices, you'll begin to build a portfolio of solid businesses that will improve your odds of doing well in the stock market. Discover Pat Dorsey's proven approach in The Little Book that Builds Wealth and be on your way to building a portfolio of high performance stocks.
