I recently published a new dividend portfolio page that highlights all of my investments. I’ve been looking forward to taking things public to help me stay focused on my holdings, share ideas and receive feedback from fellow investors like you.
I am currently in 27 stocks/ETFs and holding about 10% cash while I hunt for more value. 4 of these are REITs and 4 are ETFs. I expect that a few opportunities will come my way later this year. I own 2 stocks that do not pay any dividends because of what I hope from them in the future. This is rare for me but when I believe in a company’s long term story the way I do with Baidu and SuperValue I can sometimes overlook the fact that they do not pay a dividend. 95% of my portfolio is in stocks that pay dividends.
Because I have held most of these stocks for some time I plan to write up a few posts that explain why I am currently invested in these stocks vs why I made the purchase.
There are a couple emerging markets and sectors that I want exposure to so I have choosen to be long a few ETFs like the following:
Alerian MLP ETF – MLP exposure
iShares MSCI Philippians – Philippians
Vanguard FTSEEuro – Europe
SPDR Select Sector – Financials
I’m a bit overweight financials and tech right now which is exactly where I want to be.
You can see the full list of my holdings here.
