  • NV Energy Bought By Buffett - Replaced With SCANA In HYLP Model Portfolio

    Thanks to Warren Buffett buying NV Energy (NYSE:NVE), the HYLP model bagged a quick 20%+ profit. The stock was sold to lock in the gain, and redeployed by purchasing SCANA Corp (NYSE:SCG) which has a 4% yield.

  • DG-Income Growth Model Change Due To HNZ Buyout

    Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway made a bid to buyout HNZ. As a result of the price run-up, and lower current yield because of it, this holding has been sold in the DG-Income Growth model and replaced with the next highest yielding stock on the buy list, Clorox (NYSE:CLX). This model will be completely rebalanced next month.

  • Stop-Loss Sales In DG Models

    In the last two weeks, Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Diebold (NYSE:DBD) triggered my -20% stop-loss rule (4 wks of underperforming the S&P by 20%). I had written about perhaps ignoring the stop-loss for INTC because it has such a low payout ratio, but since I haven't had time to do more research on this, the rule will remain in effect. The sales occurred on Oct 5th.

    INTC sold, replaced by Maxim (NASDAQ:MXIM) in the Income Growth and Dividend Aristocrats+ model portfolios.

    DBD sold, replaced by Harris Corp (NYSE:HRS) in the Small Cap DG portfolio.

    INTC was retained in the high-yield, low-payout model because this model does ignore the stop-loss rule.

    Disclosure: I am long INTC.
