Investor's Opinion

Portfolio Update

Published: 2012-03-15 08:20:00 EDT by Unknown

In my last update I posted that I added DE, ETP, and PEP to my portfolio in accordance with the investing strategy of buying share in strong companies with sustainable dividends with the goal of being paid every month. I have since then added MCD to my portfolio. MCD has not held its value as well, but the decline does not yet seem to be justified as anymore than profit taking.

My position in the TLT has paid out again this month. Unfortunately, the volume in the bond market is now reversing. As a result of the recent decline, I have lowered my limit order even more. No point in over paying.

I have also made adjustments to my other orders. Some of them I have increased the limit and reduced the number of shares I will purchase because they have moved higher recently. Others I have lowered because I think I see better entries at lower prices based on my technical analysis. That is my opinion, you can take it or leave it. Disclaimer: See bottom of page.

DE - Deere & Co.
ETP - Energy Transfer Partners, LP
MCD - McDonalds Corp
PEP - Pepsico Inc.
TLT - iShares Trust Barclays 20+ Year Treasury Bond
