2013 M* DIVIDEND MACHINE PORTFOLIO

Updated 2/1/2019

In 2013 I again used my four dividend machine criteria to select a stock for inclusion in the portfolio. However, I did not stick to a schedule of picking one stock per week as I had in previous years. In 2013 I selected a stock for inclusion when I thought I liked the stock for some reason.   That reason could be that I wanted to diversify my own portfolio; or it could be due to news.  All stocks selected met the criteria when I posted them.

See the results below.
