December 2016 Results

December 2016 Results
Present Plan:
Typically, contribute $500 a month to the portfolio, aiming for total returns of 8% YoY, with increasing dividend income. 
At present, my model portfolio in pretty much in place and the only remaining positions I wish to eliminate is ATRS.  
 
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.
 
===========================================================
Lessons Learned in 2016:
1.  Ignore the geopolitical events and stay invested.
   A "Trump" election showed futures down 800pts followed by a rebound (S&P up 4% in 1 month)
2. Stick to the plan, quality companies performed well again
  Utilities up 17.9%, REITs 13.9% - Staples only up 3.0%, Cons Disc down -0.1%
Goals for 2017:
1.  Increase dividend income to >$5,000 for 2017 
2.  Increase portfolio and 401k value to >$275k for 2017
3.  Begin to pay off car loan (extra $100/mo pays off 5yr loan in 4 yrs)
===========================================================
Current Month-end Watchlist:
I will be considering the following purchases in January 2017…
Div Growth: consumer staples with >3% yields
