I have been asked over and over from many of my friends, family, and colleagues; "What dividend stocks do you like?" So, by popular demand I have decided to reveal my dividend stock portfolio. This portfolio is my retirement portfolio, it is held in an IRA. As a general rule I try to hold no more than fifteen holdings in this account and I try not to own any mutual funds in this account. Lastly, I obviously believe these investments as a whole will outperform the major market indexes on average the next five years. The portfolio currently consists of twelve holdings and periodically I may buy, sell, or replace holdings at any time. So, without further ado, here is the portfolio:
