In 2014 I increased the required minimal dividend yield to 3.5% from 3.0% and I increased the dividend growth rate to 4% annual increases.  Holdings and results are presented below.

Note this 2014 portfolio is the worst portfolio I have ever compiled.  I believe the fault lies in chasing yield.   This 2014 portfolio is heavily weighted toward energy and it is a small portfolio with only 18 stocks.  The portfolio holds over $6,000 in cash from buy outs.  I do not reinvest these funds so that I can track performance easily.
