March 2017 Results

March 2017 Results
Present Plan:
Typically, contribute $600 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.
 
===========================================================
Current Month-end Watchlist:
I will be considering the following purchases in April 2017…

February 2017 Results

February 2017 Results
Present Plan:
Typically, contribute $600 a month to the portfolio, aiming for total returns of 8% YoY, with increasing dividend income. 
At present, my model portfolio in 95% in place and I plan to add to existing positions.  Two or three new positions may be added if an opportunity presents itself.
 
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.
