Last year I did some in-depth research to find long term sustainable dividend stocks and have been doing updates on this Ultimate Sustainable dividend portfolio since then in the attempt to show how well such a portfolio can perform over the long term but also show how I would manage such a portfolio. I have said it before, I do not believe in stocks that you can hold “forever”. Thus, even in a long term portfolio such as this one, I will end up making some trades from time to time. I did do one last month so nothing new is coming in April. I do discuss the search for new high quality sustainable dividend stocks that can be added in our free mailing list, if ever you would like to receive those types of updates, please join, it’s free:

Keep in mind that this portfolio was built by selecting 20 stocks out of thousands. The goal is not to pick the 20 best dividend stocks but rather to pick a diversified, high quality portfolio that will keep dividends increasing over time.

Here are the holdings as of last night to start off (please note that currently, dividends are not reinvested automatically through a DRIP strategy):

Not much change here, March is done, April will be a slower month as was the case in January!:

A few bad performances ended up meaning that the USDP is slightly under-performing the S&P500.. hopefully not for long



After adding Aflac (AFL) in last month’s update, I do expect to keep more or less the same stocks for a while now. We’ll see how things go:)

    Why are you not automatically reinvesting the DRIPs?

    @Squeezer – Because for now I’d prefer to add different stocks, I might change that at some point
