Dividend Value Builder Portfolios – One Year Performance Record

by | Dividend Investing

Arbor Investment Planner is pleased to announce the performance record of the Dividend Value Builder Portfolios for the period of 12/11/2015 to 12/10/2016.

The purpose of the Dividend Value Builder is to provide a quantitative approach to discover, evaluate, and compare dividend stocks without emotional bias. My goal is to give investors the confidence to invest in individual dividend stocks using a conservative approach that includes requiring a margin of safety.

The benefits of investing in individual stocks versus indices (mutual funds and/or ETFs) are large. Individual stock selection saves the fees that funds charge, protects you from buying baskets of mostly overpriced stocks, and increases the probability of success because you can require a margin of safety on each individual purchase.

From 12/11/15 to 12/10/16 the three Dividend Value Builder Portfolios (Kings & Aristocrats, Dividend Growth, and High Income) opened a total of 30 positions of which 15 have been closed with an average gain of 24.5% (including dividends).
