September 2016 Results

September 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.
