My Portfolio

My portfolio, last updated July 14, 2017

The chart below only lists the value gains (or losses) on the stocks I own, the total return is higher due to dividends received. A previous version of the chart tracked market value, value gain and weight on a per stock basis but I decided to simplify the chart to make it faster to update. Everything has to be updated manually so it’s very time consuming. At a later point I may add a fully-automated version of the chart, but this is pretty low on my priority list.

I’ve nicknamed my portfolio the DaC fund. It’s very much a work in progress, but over time my portfolio should start resembling an index ETF. The main difference is I can pick each constituent by hand, I focus more on dividends and can micro-manage the portfolio as much as I want — which I enjoy a lot.

      Thanks, I hope to build up a pretty nice portfolio over the coming years. At present it’s not diversified enough to my liking but those juicy yields from RDSB and PM have been hard to resist ;-).

    Thanks for disclosing your portfolio. You have some decent gains there so I am guessing this was invested some time ago, before QE the world over. You are not tempted to realise a gain and reinvest ? I look forward to reading more of your blog.

      The portfolio is pretty young, I started it in August 2014. Some of the European stocks like VAN, WDP and ULVR really took off in the weeks before and after the ECB QE announcement.

      A large part of the value gains of my US stocks on the other hand are due to the strong dollar, a lot of these purchases were made when the EUR/USD was still in the 1.2-1.35 range.

      I’m not tempted to sell and reinvest, the goal from the onset was to build a portfolio with stocks I can hold for decades and that generate an ever increasing dividend stream.

        I respect your focus and long run goal. Stick at it. If you have any inclination to research Midcap EUR stocks at any time as a sideline/different possibility, please let me know.

    Pretty well diversified portfolio for its size. We have quite a few names in common between our portfolios which is always nice to see. Keep buying quality dividend names.

      Thanks, I hope to expand it further over the coming months/years. So far I’ve been able to take advantage of free transaction promotions at my broker so transactions costs haven’t really been an issue yet.

      They have had a nice run recently, seems like the failed takeover bid from Kraft Heinz made the market realize there’s a lot of value to be unlocked at Unilever. The company just announced they will investigate what they can do to unlock more shareholder value in the short run, will be interesting to see what they will present in April.

      Good luck with the new blog, seems like you have a nice portfolio too!
