  • Stop-Loss Sales In DG Models 0 comments
    Oct 17, 2012 11:00 PM | about stocks: INTC

    In the last two weeks, Intel (INTC) and Diebold (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 (MXIM) in the Income Growth and Dividend Aristocrats+ model portfolios.

    DBD sold, replaced by Harris Corp (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.
