For these year 2017, my goal is to sell all companies that do not offer dividends and replace them with companies that offer a dividend of at least 2,5% but also long-term visibility. I want to build a portfolio of 50 lines exposed to the North American and European markets. April and May were 2 important months to apply my strategy change with many purchases / sales. To date, most companies in my portfolio that do not offer dividends are in loss.
Concerning this month, I made a very large number of purchases / sales in order to reorient my portfolio towards stocks that give all strong dividends. There are two types of shares: those that offer a “safe” dividend of the Aristocrate dividend type (EXXON, AT&T) and those that are totally undervalued (L BRAND , CBL, SPG) . Some like TARGET, STAPLES & GAP have the 2 criteria.
