The perfect 2019 port, a contest of sorts....
#31
Through the end of July, $12,014. Started FEB 1 per our rules

AAPL
HD
NEE
UPS
RQI

I wish my real port was up 20% in 6 months. I still don't own UPS but have 100 shares each of the rest. Most of my stocks are actually fairly even at around 20% give or take a few percent. These stocks are holding my real port up some for sure.

I only checked Binary so far and I have pulled ahead of him, for now. Lot's of time and the fat lady isn't even warming up just yet. Some of you guys have ports with dividends at least a percent or two higher average than mine. I predict that is going to matter when we add it in DEC. I have three stocks highly susceptible to trade war crash if this gets worse. RQI is my best stock and I am still holding my breath. Insane return and I don't know why if I'm honest.

This has been fun. For next year maybe we can make it more interesting with a wager. (completely optional and everyone can still play). Maybe an extra value meal wager. If six guys played #4-6 could send a $10 gift card to #1-3. One gift card wagered. Of course we'd have to make it interesting and you'd have to add McDonalds or YUM etc.. Or we could step it up and do industrials. It would be a real hoot if Otter had to buy me that CAT bulldozer I've always wanted. Kidding, I'd lose and be real jealous when he was posting pics of the Boeing 787 he made me buy him. Smile

Wow -- I forgot about this too! (Sorry). Thanks for keeping it up, F53!

The Portfolio Backtest website now has all the data in through the end of August (2 full quarters of this endeavor). Assuming $10,000 initial investment, my portfolio of equal initial weight for BTI, F, IBM, JCI, and NGG would be worth $10,861.00 today, for a gain of 8.61%

You are even better off through the end of August. $12,470, or a 24.7% gain!

I'm pleased with that, but it isn't going to continue from here without a trade war resolution.  Everyone of those stocks with the exception of UPS is overvalued, arguably way overvalued.  NEE and RQI run were unexpected since I didn't really catch them on a dip.  RQI has run up so fast the dividend isn't ridiculously high anymore, which was the whole point of buying it.  It's popular on Seeking Alpha.

Your RQI looks like it made a channel breakout. This thing could zoom a bit from here! Nice trade.

Yeah well when I bought I thought I'd take the 8% Div, and the SP could surely run up 5% this year with the possibility of interest rates dropping.  If I have any sense I'll trim it some soon.  Anyone buying it now has to be up to nothing but a momentum trade.
