Now in the 6th year of Dividend Income Investor.
Before buying any investment, go to Core Portfolio for a listing of current positions.

June 18, 2018.  So far in 2018 we have been trying to reduce the number of holdings in the Core Portfolio.  There are just too many to monitor, and we have missed, no surprise, some opportunities.  We have a life outside of this blog and do not spend 8 hours working the portfolio.  And we do not earn any money for our blog efforts, altho we never intended to.

Recently we have been selling low paying corporate bonds with the intention of buying new positions in the higher 6% range.  But due to the strength of the markets, there are few if any bargains.

We tried to get HCAPZ but the damn thing shot up in price very quickly for some reason.  And current positions are very strong so we are not seeing pullbacks which would give us the opportunity to buy at better prices.  Trump is a narcissist, but he really has Companies enthused and stocks keep heading higher with bonds strong…..as the fake news press keeps spewing hate speech.  It is truly amazing to us that the ultra radical liberals can be so fucking stupid.

Maintain Limit Buy on HCAPZ at $25.40 in case we get lucky and the price comes back.
