November is behind us, time to check in on my portfolio.
The past month has again been pretty volatile.
However, less concerned about daily or even monthly gyrations, I stuck to my original plan of collecting dividends and buying on weakness.
It’s been a busy November! This month I made several purchases:
I added to my existing positions of AO Smith, Wells Fargo and Huntington Bancshares.
In addition I bought 50 more shares of AT&T, and started a new position in Microsoft.
Given these new buys, this month’s received dividends and stock price changes - how did my portfolio progress in November?
For reasons of comparison: a year ago, at the end of November 2017, my portfolio consisted of 47 positions with a total value of $113,480.
At the end of November 2018 my portfolio consisted of 58 positions with a total market value of $159,087, a Year-on-Year (YoY) increase of 40%.
This YoY increase is featured in the graph below.
