2018 M* Income Portfolio

Year Ebd Update 2019


2018 was a tough year for income investors.  We are in transition.  Our income stocks are over bought and good bonds are still too expensive.  The 2018 portfolio income goal is 5% without having to depend on call option income.

All other criteria such as earnings per share (EPS) greater than dividend paid out and dividend increases as well as a solid balance sheet as measured by a D/E (debt to equity ratio) of one or less or within industry standard.
