Individual investor looking after the family portfolios. Portfolios: Dividend and Income Growth: ABBV, ABRPRA, BBL, BNS, BP, BXMT, CAT, CCP, CLDT, CSCO, CVX, D, DOW, EMR, EXC, F, GE, GPT, HP, IBM, JPM, KO, LADR, LTSPRA, LXP, MAIN, MAT, NLYPRC, NRE, NRF, PG, PKG, PRU, RASPRA, RDSB, SDRL, SO, SOUHY, STAG, STWD, T, TUP, VTR, VZ, WDR, WEC, WFC, WMT, WPC, XOM (started in July 2014 buying only when fair value or better is present, with a minimum 3% YOC at purchase or in sight with next dividend increase; portfolio YOC of 5.30%, Beta of .687). Dividend Tracking: SCHD (used to compare against results of the Dividend and Income Growth portfolio). My IRA: IVOG, POAGX, SPAXX, VASVX, VDIGX, VGHCX, VWIGX (experiment in active management following the Growth Model portfolio by Vanguard guru Dan Wiener; MRD in 11 years). My wife's IRA: AAPL, AMGN, BRKB, CMI, DLR, FBALX, HCP, HTA, JCI, JNJ, KMI, MPW. OPK, PFF, RS, RZG, TAREX, UNP, USB, UTX (evolving into growth and income strategy - won't need income or cap gains until MRD in 15 years). LEGACY: AXP, COH (shares acquired through stock option exercises - heavy capital gains - holding on and tracking separately - no new buys for either as they are both out-sized positions). Over time I hope to learn the value of different strategies by monitoring and managing these portfolios.
