  • My Dividend Portfolio: Adding Coca-Cola [View article]
    Bahamas, they are a number of smaller Australian listed companies, I'd estimate there are about 15 positions that comprise that dividend amount.

    The stability that it provides to a portfolio and the high quality of the earnings and the dividend is part of the attraction.

    Q2 was when the position was first initiated, I've been adding selectively since then.

  • My Dividend Portfolio: 2013 Year In Review [View article]
    moze, The total return of my portfolio over 10 years is about 12.5% based on my calculations. I have a current yield on portfolio of a bit under 4%.

    Ruger,

    I prefer not to have the regulatory exposure that comes with owning the tobacco stocks (even though they done a pretty good job of insulating themselves till now)

    moze, i don't blame you having unemployed capital. I'm pretty happy not having my surplus capital more actively deployed at the moment. I'm fully invested, and I just continue to see what I hold go up and up. My aim is to also sustain a livelihood from passive income, primarily dividends and some rental assets. I'd like to get to that desired level of income to be fully passive within the next 10 years.

    Pole, I'm not completely sure that LMT won't be affected by defense cuts. I'm happy with the initial size of the position I bought and I don't regret the partial sale. It may be one of those positions I shouldn't have initially bought, because I'm not sure that I would have wanted to hold it for 10+ years. I just couldn't help myself because I was attracted to the high starting yield.

    Visa & Mastercard - Now that's a different story. I want to hold those positions for life.

    Thanks Barry. Visa and Mastercard rose so spectacularly last year that I couldn't help myself take a little off the table. I still have very large core positions in both in my portfolio. I do wonder though now whether it was the right thing to do, since their earnings will continue to run onwards and upwards in my view. I guess that's the challenge for a value investor when prices dramatically shoot up.

    Alex, That's sage advice. I do wonder if I went a bit too far overboard with my trimming/rebalancing toward the end of last year. It's one of my objectives to exercise a bit more discipline in 2014 with respective to taking money off the table through partial sales.

    kolpin, I made the decision to trim more on the basis of valuation of some of the stocks in my own portfolio that were trading at pretty lofty valuations. I'm really not sure how much longer the bull market can go on, but I find it tough to time these things. 5 years is already pretty lengthy for a bull market, I'm not sure if it can manage another couple!

    LMT did have a dramatic run upward, I think close to 60% over 2013. My main concern with LMT is how it's medium term earnings may look post all the defense cuts. That element of uncertainty, combined with a pretty steep valuation prompted to me to trim slightly. My own view is that it's more on the side of overvalued rather than fair value right now. Morningstar assigns LMT 1 star currently, and their valuations have served me well in the past.

    Thnx Pkan. Yeah I have been running the ruler on Target. It appears to me to be fair value rather than compelling value right now (which is better than what I can say for a lot of stocks in the market currently). I'll probably wait for a more meaningful decline before adding.

    Yes, many are traded as ADR's or pink sheets. Franked dividends (which is what most of my dividends are) are treated as qualified for US tax purposes given the tax arrangements between Australia and US.
