April 2014 Results


April 2014 Results
Present Plan:
I will contribute $600 per mo. to the trading portfolio, aiming for returns of 10% YoY, with increasing dividend income. 
At present, my immediate plan is to get my model portfolio in place in the dividend growth part of the portfolio.  
I still need to trim Growth positions and add to Dividend Growth names, so I expect to make a few trades near term.
 
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.
