Dividend Growth Stock Portfolio – Dec 2020

Let´s talk about money! In this article I will reveal the current status of my dividend growth stock portfolio, including a detailed analysis of my portfolio allocation in terms of market sectors, a region analysis and a forecast about my dividend payments. I have already presented My Personal Long-Term Investment Strategy in detail, but in the following you will find a short summary once again:

  • Long-term buy and hold strategy
  • Focus on big corporations with sustainable business models
  • Dividend yield target of 4% (on costs)
  • Annual average rate of return target of 5-7%
  • 70% portfolio allocation to dividend paying stocks
  • 30% portfolio allocation to growth stocks
  • Combination of value and dividend growth investing, with a bigger allocation to growth stocks

The current status of my portfolio may differ from the above-mentioned targets. These are long-term targets that I would like to achieve on average.

This article series is intended to show you from scratch how building a stock portfolio with a long-term and cash flow-oriented approach could work. I started with this portfolio in August 2020 and will add more funds every month. Due to that, there will be a portfolio update every month (always on weekends when the stock markets are closed). Moreover, I will provide additional information on why I decided to invest in the companies mentioned below, but this will not be part of this article.

Of course, I have to refer to my disclaimer at this point, as none of the following information should be considered as investment advice or recommendation.

Portfolio dashboard – Dec 2020

The portfolio dashboard provides the most important information and the current status of my portfolio on one page (one click opens it on a separate page):

  • Portfolio balance
  • Dividend statement incl. dividend meter
  • Market sector analysis
  • Region analysis
  • Top positions in terms of portfolio weight
  • Current winner and loser of the portfolio

Portfolio balance – Dec 2020:

  • Initial investment: €7,320.00
  • Current portfolio value: €7,960.24
  • Profit / loss: €640.24 (8.75%)

I started this portfolio in August 2020, just before the 10-15% market correction during September and October this year. The maximal drawdown of my portfolio was 9.5%, which is less compared to main indices. However, the portfolio recovered very well during November with a monthly return of 15.7%, which was mainly driven by the news about approved vaccine from Pfizer / Biontech.

Portfolio evaluation and end of year summary

I am still happy with the status of my portfolio. The current portfolio rate of return of 8.75% after 4 months is significantly higher than I expected and already exceeds my annual rate of return target of 5-7%. I do not expect that this will change dramatically during the next two weeks until the end of 2020.

In terms of market sectors, I would like to increase my allocation to sectors that are currently underrepresented. I will concentrate on that during 2021, but this will not be the main driver for my investment decisions. I will rather invest in companies that I consider valuable to invest in.

Moreover, I am still planning to increase my allocation to stocks from companies located in Asia to further diversify geographically. But after doing some research in the last 2 weeks I recognized that this market provides many opportunities but also many pitfalls especially for dividend growth investors. Due to that, I will not rush in and take more time for an intensive research.

In December 2020 I added funds to existing positions of my portfolio. These were BASF, Rio Tinto, AT&T, AbbVie, AMD, Amazon, Apple, Shopify, Broadcom, Cisco Systems, Coca-Cola, JPMorgan, NVIDIA, Procter & Gamble, Realty Income, Sabra Health Care REIT, Square, Tesla, Blackstone Group, W.P. Carey, Welltower and Barrick Gold.

Positions that were closed are: Fiverr International Ltd, Dr. Hoenle AG, Biotest AG and va Q tec AG.

The dividend yield of my portfolio slightly increased compared to the status of November 2020, but it is still well below the target of 4%. About 70% of the companies of my portfolio pay dividends and due to that I receive dividend payments every month of the year.

My personal investment targets for 2021 are:

  • Increase portfolio allocation to market sectors that are underrepresented.
  • Further diversify geographically by adding stocks from Asia.
  • Increase dividend yield of the portfolio to at least 3.5%.
