2016 Dividend Tracker IRA Portfolio #1
I’m currently following two portfolio strategies in my Fidelity IRA.
My goal is to eventually own shares in 13-16 out of the 20 Companies.
When a holding gets to a profit margin I feel is adequate I sell and buy another.

Jan 8: Mr Scott’s Dividend Champions Strategy, has one turnover, CTBI, with proceeds to purchase MO. CTBI is in the red for me, will hold till it goes green.
Feb 8: Mr Scott’s List has one turnover, WMT, with the proceeds to purchase EV.
Feb 24: Sold WMT * for a 14.67% profit. Sold 59 shares at $66.48.
Feb 25/26: With the WMT proceeds: Bought 74 shares of CSCO ++ at $26.33 per share. Bought 32 shares of MO * at $61.45 per share.
Mar 8: Mr. Scott’s List has two turnovers, STR and TGT, with the proceeds to purchase T and TROW.
Mar 11: Sold T ++ for a 9.65% profit. Sold 89 shares at $38.46.
Mar 14: With the T proceeds: Bought 58 shares of INTC ++ at 31.65 per share. Bought 56 shares of EV * at $31.60 per share.
Mar 16: Sold STR * for a 6.31% profit. Sold 116 shares at $24.95.
Mar 17: Used the STR* proceeds: Bought 41 shares of TROW* at $71.30 per share…
1st Quarter Update: The first three months generated $1,446.40 in total profits. My wife’s IRA generated $617.41 in dividends, for a grand total of $2,063.81 or $688 per month.
Apr 4th: Sold UHT* for a small profit.
Apr 8th: No turnover with Mr Scott’s List
Apr 15th: Used UHT proceeds to purchase CAT, 36 shares at $74.59 each.
May 8th: One turnover with Mr Scott’s List. Sell TROW and buy STR.
May 10th: Sold TROW for a small profit.:
May 11th: Bought STR, 127 shares at $25.04.
June 5th: One turnover with Mr Scott’s List. Sell ADM and buy TGT. I don’t own ADM yet so I sold EV for a 15.4% profit and bought TGT for $68, which is off it’s 52 week high of $85.
June 7th: There are two turnovers in the Dogs of the Dow Strategy. I want to own all the small Dogs. CAT and CSCO is replaced by KO and PFE. I placed an order today to hopefully execute tomorrow; sell CSCO. The sale will generate a 10.01% profit, proceeds to buy PFE or MRK. Hold CAT, a 3.01% return is not enough? Wait and see what the stock does, perhaps sell at 5% return…
June 8th: Sold CSCO for a profit. Placed order to buy PFE.
June 9th: Bought 61 shares of PFE at $35.06.
June 15th: Opened a Vanguard IRA in order to purchase an OTC stock RCAR, RenovaCare Inc. The stock sells now for $2.45 and could go to $30, so says the Guru Bill Mathews in his The Cheap Investor Newsletter. We’ll see Bill. Good luck to us, if it’s a winner I’ll be a subscriber at $197 per year!!!
2nd Quarter Update: My portfolio has generated $833.72in dividends and $1,867.94 in stocks sold, for a total of $2,701 in total profits, $450 per month. Add that to Cindy’s IRA dividends and we received $3,958, or $660 per month.
July 5th: Sold VZ for a 19.76% profit. I feel it is time to transition the Dogs Strategy out and bring in a different approach. When Phizer, Intel and Caterpillar hit a profit threshold of 10% I’ll be selling. But you never know, I’ll always monitor the Dow Dogs looking for a steal…since they always go up and down like a slinky.
July 5th: Two turnovers with Mr Scott’s List. Sell CVX and XOM and buy CTBI and TROW. I don’t own XOM and never sold CTBI last time it came off the list. Currently do not hold three-of-ten stocks on the new list, TROW, EV, and T. These three are at all-time highs and I don’t see enough growth or dividends to warrant a purchase,
July 6th: Used half my cash balance to purchase 73 shares of Starwood Property Trust (STWD), an mReit.
July 7th: Bought 110 shares of PIMCO Corporate and Income Opportunity Fund (PTY), Corporate Debt Obligations.
July 8th: Sold CVX for a small profit.
July 11th: Bought 184 shares of Triplepoint Venture Growth BDC (TPVG). Business development company specializing investments in growth stage. It also provides debt financing to venture growth space companies.
July 29th: Bought another 226 shares of RCAR.
Aug 8th: One turnover with Mr Scott’s List. Sell EV and replace with CSVI. Don’t own EV. Three stocks on the list I do not own are TROW, T, and CSVI.
Sept 2nd: Sold INTC for a 13.3% profit. It fell off the Dogs list and is replaced with VZ. I had sold VZ back in July when it hit $56, it is now back to $52. I’ll buy and sell these Dogs of the Dow as they bounce up and down and hope to snag a dividend or two along the way….
Sept 20th: STR merged with another Company and paid a $25 per share buy-out. I bought in at $25.04 but with the special dividend I ended up ahead, plus I got two quarterly dividends. Proceeds to buy TROW if I can get it at $66.50.
Sept 26th: Bought 50 shares of TROW at $66.50 each.
Third Quarter Update: Portfolio continues to trend up in value. Nine month average of $166 per month in dividends and $459 per month when adding profits from the sale of stocks. When adding Cindy’s portfolio dividends we come to a total of $690 per month.
Oct 7th: One turnover with Mr. Scott’s List. STR came off last month due to a merger. Replace with UVV. I own 8 of 10 on the list leaving T and UVV. Sold CAT for a 19.45% profit and bought T, 84 shares at $38.75 each.
Nov 9th: One turnover with Mr. Scott’s List. Sell CSVI and buy EV. I’ve yet to buy EV and UVV but own positions in the other 8. Hoping Cindy finds a job this month, really would like to make another deposit before year end.
Dec 2nd: Sold HP for a 26.4% profit and bought UVV with half my cash balance.
Dec 8th: There is turnover in three positions this month with Mr. Scott’s List. Selling are CTBI, EMR, EV. And buying VFC, ED, and KO.
I did not own EV and EMR is paying it’s Dividend Friday so I’ll sell it and CTBI Monday and then buy VFC and ED. I already own a lot of KO stock in my 401k and I sold HP even though it’s still on the list. Selling HP, CTBI, and EMR will generate a near $1,758 profit.
Dec 12th: Sold EMR for a $487 profit and bought VFC and ED. Waiting for CTBI’s dividend.
Dec 26th: I made this tracker on the 10 stocks Mr. Scott’s strategy picks every month. I don’t always sell and buy immediately upon the monthly release of the new list and there is usually at least one swap every month. This will help me see at a glance what the new equities are, what I own, and what needs to be sold.
Forth Quarter Update: 2016 was a great year. I rolled over an old 401k into this IRA at the very end of 2014. Mr. Scotts Dividend Champion strategy is a proven winner. I sold 14 Companies for a profit of $4,377 and received dividends of $2,489 for a total of $6,866 or an average of $572 per month. The dividends alone averaged $207. The Coke stock is in my 401k, I consider the dividend income here, but it is not part of this IRA, or the portfolio balance.
I wasn’t able to make a large contribution this year, still replenishing our cash reserves after making a $28,000 cash purchase of property at the lake.
Cindy’s IRA generated $3,225.05, or $265 monthly average, in dividends. That gives us a combined total, in just dividends, of $5,714, or $476 monthly. If I add the profit of the 14 equities I bought and sold the total is $10,091, or $840 monthly average.
