The perfect 2019 port, a contest of sorts....

Everytime I invest in oil I spend the next couple years hoping the dividend and covered calls get me back to even. I own BP and ENB now, not that any major or pipeline is much different than the other choices a year down the road.

I got lucky with MPC June 6 @ 48.10

I've been lucky in oil a few times but it wasn't anytime recently.  In retrospect, the only reliable way to make money is buy them when they look like they are going BK, sell after a good run and go away for years.  I'd bet just about everybody on the forum owns oil and wishing it was a true DGI stock.  Those days may be gone forever.

For jdhansen, I had to split the 20% of the portfolio allocated to DWDP, which has now split up into CTVA, DD, and DOW, on the following basis (3% CTVA, 7% DD, 10% DOW, which is roughly the same proportionate split as the companies underwent when factored into the 20% whole):

fenders53                    $13,256  32.56%
divmenow                    $12,319  23.19%
Binary                         $12,028  20.28%
Kerim                          $11,881  18.81%
DividendGarden            $11,495 14.95%
jdhansen                     $11,481   14.81%
EricL                           $11,420  14.20%
stockguru                    $11,324  13.24%

rayray                         $10,741    7.41%
ChadR                         $10,595   5.95%

SPY return over the same period is 11.16%

Updated through the end of January, 2020, to take in a full calendar year. Also ran SPY to show how the benchmark did over the same time period. Final results:

divmenow                    $13,204  32.04%

Thanks a bunch for handling that Otter. It was fun, and time sure flies. Given the dividend requirement, it's pretty impressive that six beat the SPY. I know Chad's not pleased with his performance, but it happens with a basket of only five stocks of course. And I got a little lucky for sure. I had no expectation RQI would run that high as it's just a high div CEF. At least at the beginning of the year it was high div.
