    Nice portfolio. We have similar positions (T, WMT, KO). Good ones I might add. Looking forward to following the growth of your portfolio.

      Hi and thanks for stopping by! It is quite exciting to see the dividends grow every month. I do like those three that you’ve listed and I wished that I could have bought more of WMT. As for T, I will be adding more in the future and plan for it to be one of my bigger holdings in my portfolio. I have some what mixed feelings about KO as studies are showing that soft drinks and sugar is bad for your health and soda is on the decline. But at the same time it’s brand and loyalty will never disappear and if they go the route of PEP (Pepsi), they will start new categories of health products. They do have the cash flow and a competitive advantage to restructure their business for a more health oriented business for the future!

      My next buy will be around the end of December but it will be into a new dividend stock. I plan to buy into 30 different companies (1k each) then start shoveling 1k each into the companies I find at a discount at the time of the purchase. Hope you continue to stop by to check up on my updates!

      I would also would like to let you know that I’ve been working on a dividend application and it’s close to a release soon. Basically, you can manage your dividend stocks using this application that will calculate your yearly, quarterly, and monthly dividends with up to date data as well as your cost basis. I also added a new feature recently that will generate an excel sheet based on your portfolio holdings. I’ve been testing the application and once the testing and the technical online manual is finished, I will be releasing it for free! I’ve totally revamped the application in the new version and will release an update very soon. If you’re interested in learning more about it, please check out the app section of my blog! https://dividendliberty.com/2015/11/06/dividend-application-update/.

    For the most part I like your dividend portfolio. Looks fairly conservative without many high yield names that are risky. I’m not one to buy into ETFs but I’m not against it either. I can understand your reasoning for wanting some metals exposure in your portfolio. Often when I see a portfolio of someone who just started out I see many high yield mREITs, BDCs or MLPs with sky high yield that is clearly unsustainable. You seem to be going the SWAN route. Thanks for sharing.

      Hey no problem! I try to build my portfolio based on the long term as I’ve got so many years ahead of me for growth. I may get into some REITs later as I get closer to 30 companies in my portfolio (HCP, UHT, O) but thanks for stopping by!

    Hi,

    Looks like you have a good start to your dividend portfolio. I have recently started my blog also, but have a mix of some growth stocks as well since I am young. Hope to build a strong core like yours though! Good Luck!

      Thanks for visiting, Dividend Freedom.

      I just have one property, my house that I live currently reside in but hopefully when it is paid off in the future, I can start using it as a rental property and move into another house.

    Just stumbled upon your site. Great group of holdings! I am excited to see the progress in the portfolio. Blog is great, but had one or two suggestions/ questions. Is there a reason you are taking price out so many decimal places? Usually it gets taken to 2 or 3 depending on who you buy your stocks through. Second, it would be nice to see an extra line for the grand total of all accounts and yield percentage.

    Keep up the great work! Also, I recently got into the dividend blogging game myself. I added you to my blogroll. Hope you will consider doing the same for me. http://www.dividenddaze.com

      Hi Dividend Daze,

      Thanks for visiting! About the decimal points, you’re correct. I use TDAmeritrade and I decided to go by the decimal points that they use and I applied it to the Fidelity accounts as well to stay consistent.

      As for your suggestion of the grand total of all three accounts, I actually was thinking about adding it in the future. Thanks for your suggestions and I will add you to my blog roll! Hope you can return the favor.

    Hey DL,

    just came across your great site. Good job. I really like your portfolio, especially JNJ, Unilever, PepsiCo and Royal Dutch Shell. I plan on opening a position of PEP and JNJ for my portfolio, but unfortunately they’re not cheap right now. I bought 75 shares of Royal Dutch Shell recently…

      Hi Dividendsolutions,

      It looks like we have similar companies in our portfolios. I recently sold off my taxable account (my biggest portfolio) to pay off a portion of my mortgage. But I still have my 401k and IRA account and I had a tough time allocating limited funds to new dividend positions. I added PEP recently but there are just so many wonderful companies out there to choose from! Shell is also a very solid choice. Thanks for stopping by!
