Current Holdings 2-16-2015

In an attempt to hold myself more accountable, I'm going to try to start insta-blogging my holdings and recording my trades.

First, we have my common stocks:

Common Stocks 2-16-2015

$GSK and $MAT are remnants from when I was foolishly chasing yield. $SAND and $SLW are remnants from when I was foolishly trying to diversify. All positions are small enough that I see no reason to sell. $IGT is pending a merger.

$JNJ is new this month, as it is a best of breed stock and is fairly priced at under $100/share.

My current watchlist consists of $ABBV, $EMR, $KMI and $WMB.

Next, we have BDCs:

BDCs 2-16-2015

$MAIN is best-of-breed, and I intend to hold it forever unless tax regulations change. $HTGC and $TCPC were bough during BDC sell-offs. Both are solid currently, but they're candidates to be sold should their share prices inflate.

I currently have no BDCs on my watchlist, as I feel that I have enough BDC exposure.

Next, we have REITs:

REITs 2-16-2015

REITs are currently way overvalued. As such, I have sold off all of my more speculative REITs, with $CSG being the only non-best of breed remaining.

$STWD is on my watch list.
