Your Top Ten Holdings--2019
#1
http://dividendgrowthforum.com/showthrea...ht=top+ten


The link above lists the Top 10 of those that participated in 2018.

I thought it was a interesting topic with a lot of good info, personally, I never paid attention to what my Top 10 were until I thought of this original topic. From what I remember, I thought that the most popular stocks of the Ten would actually make a good portfolio, thanks to Kerim for spending time compiling the list with percentages!

Here's my Top 10--2019

1)   GILD   (6.19)
2)   MKL    (5.38)
3)   AAPL   (4.84)
4)   MO     (3.71)
5)   CELG  (3.69)
6)   ABBV  (3.10)
7)   KR      (3.06)
8)   XOM   (2.94)
9)   BRK.B (2.81)
10)  V       (2.58)


New funds were added to GILD/MO/CELG/ABBV/XOM in 2018

NVDA/QCOM/MGA didn't make the 2019 list due to market gyrations

TGT didn't make the Top 10 because I sold the shares and deployed funds into other stocks


EDIT: Added the portfolio weighting of each stock
         The Top 10 makes up 38.3% of my total individual stock holdings


***Your Top Ten includes individual stocks only no mutual funds allowed

Awesome -- would love to compile this again. I also thought it was really useful and telling. Keep 'em coming, everyone!

Just to be clear, by "top" ten, we mean the current largest 10 positions in our DG portfolios, right?

Kerim, correct!

The Top Ten should be your current largest 10 positions of your individual stock holdings. I did include my non-dividend paying stocks which were MKL, CELG and BRK.B--although I do hope these investments of mine do pay a dividend in the future, I doubt it will be anytime soon. Last year, it surprised me that I had any non-divi paying stocks in my 10 largest holdings, because I focus on dividends.

I excluded mutual funds and ETF type investments because I think as a Forum we can learn something from our individual stock holdings, especially, our Top Ten.

I agree, but maybe in a month do a thread where we share overall investment % by sector, and cash %.  I would find that informative.  Or maybe not if I am the only one holding some sector ETFs most all the time.   I'm always overweight a few sectors and it changes through the year.  I trim ETFs rather than DGI stocks usually.  Anyway this is better for a different thread.   

I'll check my math and get my top 10 in correct order soon.

My top ten stocks are as follows:

1.  TRV
2.  WRB
3.  AFL
4.  ORI
5.  UL
6.  USB
7.  TGT
8.  MKL
9.  TROW
10. WFC

The 11-15 "honorable mentions" are as follows:

11. CACC
12. BRK B
13. WHG
14. PM
15. DFS

I own 26 individual stocks. I'd eventually like to reduce that number to something a little more manageable but have no plans to sale anything anytime soon. My largest stock holding (TRV) currently represents 5.2% of my stock portfolio. If cash were considered a holding, it would be the largest holding currently at 18.7%.
