Last September 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.

Actually, I expect to do 1 or 2 new trades next week. I will be discussing my search for new high quality sustainable dividend stocks that will 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.. more on that later this week):

Dividends Received

The Month of August is a fair good month in terms of cash flows month for the Ultimate Sustainable Dividend Portfolio:

Two of the stocks that are paying dividends have increased their payouts, as you can see:

I also took a longer look at the stocks that I currently own this week. Take a look at this table:

[table “429” not found /]

You can note that because of the spin-off, COP’s negative sales growth is actually not “real”.  The weakest stock at this point is Linear Technology Corp (LLTC) which I will probably be selling out of the portfolio next week.

Returns

Not much change, the USDP did outperform the S&P500 slightly over the last month but still trails by a few dollars…!

 

Trades

No new trades for today but I will be making a new trade next week so stay tuned:)
