June 2015 Results
Present Plan:
I will contribute $280 every 2 weeks to the portfolio, aiming for total returns of 10% YoY, with increasing dividend income. 
At present, my model portfolio in pretty much in place and the only remaining positions I wish to eliminate are ATRS and AMRN.  
Note: 401k loan initiated to purchase/renovate a new home for our growing family (soon to be 4 of us)
 
All dividends are currently being reinvested back into the companies paying the dividend. New cash will be used to add to positions or create new ones at $1k increments.
 
===========================================================
Current Month-end Watchlist:
I am considering the purchase of the following positions in July 2015…
Div Growth: PM, O, XOM, CVX, VZ
Growth:  none
Roth IRA: account fully invested
