HIA Income Portfolio July-2013
IBD Income Portfolio July-2013
Jeff Freidberg Income Portfolio July-2013
Jeff Friedburg adds: For the record, the Friedberg portfolio is not an income portfolio. It is primarily a growth portfolio, though it does include 2 REITs, 2MLPs and a utility. The portfolio is simply a snapshot of stocks that I liked on Jan 1, 2013. We track the value of this portfolio throughout the year even though in real life we don’t necessarily continue to own all of the stocks in the portfolio. So please feel free to track it but be aware that only a handful of the securities in the portfolio provide any income.
