After index investing, my next favorite investing strategy is Dividend Investing. You can read about it a lot over here. In this article I wanted to give details on my dividend stock portfolio. I divide my stocks into various sectors. Although I do not have any target percentages for any sector. I plan on buying stocks based on their valuation and opportunities Mr. Market produces, not based on a target percentage for each sector. I am still young and do not want to restrict myself by only buying a limited amount of some individual stock. Maybe a 5k position is large in my portfolio as of today but 10-15 years later it might not even be half of what I want each position to be. I plan on holding these holdings for a long time and re-investing dividends to create that compounding effect. Most of my stocks are in either my or my wife’s Roth accounts. Some dividend stocks although are in my individual broker account which I purchased when I did not know too much about tax efficient investing. Read more about tax efficient investing here.
I will try to keep this portfolio as much updated as possible. Without much delay here is my current dividend stock portfolio(As of 15th Sep 2019):
Here is a breakdown of percentages for different sectors:
Do remember, this is just a listing of all the dividend stocks I own and their per share metrics as of As of 15th Sep 2019. This doesn’t represent my own size of individual positions or my yield on cost on these stocks.
