moneytreeIn September 2011, 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. I would personally say that things have been going very well and will certainly continue to evolve. I do have a few more things planned which I will discuss in the near future.

The USDP is obviously a critical part of my now very public quest to replace my job income with passive income. you can see my most recent update here.

The past month was an active one as I did a few “major” trades in the portfolio. Yes, I did end up missing out on a huge rebound in Intel Corp (INTC) but I do still feel like those were the right moves. INTC has stopped increasing its dividend which is a big warning sign here.

If ever you would like to receive updates about the USDP and other passive income initiatives, 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 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:

Dividends Received

I really can’t complain much here. Thanks to good picks and the $1000 that I’m adding every month, my portfolio continues to generate more and more money. It will generate $134 which is a full 46% more than the June 2013.

Returns

Despite now having some asset classes such as bonds that underperform in rising markets, the USDP still managed to catch up a bit with S&P500 total return index!

Trades

After a few trades to rebalance the portfolio, I’m now happy with where things are and will likely keep things in line for now.
