  • DCC-Active-Income-Growth Model 0 comments
    Oct 15, 2011 2:43 AM | about stocks: AVP, MDP, WMT, GPC
    Per the research discussed in my recent article on potential dividend cut signals, I created a variant of the DCC-IncomeGrowth portfolio effective today (10/15).  The new portfolio is identical to the DCC-IG, except Avon and Meredith were removed because they exhibited the 20% gap signal earlier this year.  Had I come up with this rule sooner, these stocks would not have been purchased in August, and we would not have incurred their below-market performance for the last two months.  Hopefully this rule will help this model outperform the other DCC models.  I will report on this model, along with the other 3, on a quarterly basis.  

    Using the proceeds and current cash, 180 shares of Wal-Mart were purchased to replace Avon in Consumer Staples, and 180 shares of Genuine Parts replace Meredith in Consumer Discretionary. These were the next two stocks on the screen list from my original August research.  

    If any stocks in this portfolio develop the 20% signal before December, they will be sold and replaced ahead of the annual rebalance.
