Review of the Year 2013 and goals for the next year

Year 2013 is behind us, so it's time to look at what happened to my portfolio during the year.

I did  24 transactions during the year, 21 purchases and 3 sales , I got dividends from 21 companies.
In January, I sold my 200 Orion's shares. because in my view, their value had risen too high. I left, however, a further 300 Orion's shares in my portfolio, because I still believe in Orion's ability to pay good dividends. In February, I sold about 73% of the SP corporate bond fund, because I wanted to move the weight more on direct equity investments. The third-sales I made in December, I reduced the number of my holding in Tele2, from my 500 shares, I sold 300 shares, because I'm a little skeptical of Tele2's ability to pay good dividends for years to come. These sales generated a total of  8,069 income, after-tax, my net income will be 5,648.44.


December Dividend Income

In December, the portfolio dividend income was as follows:

PFE $48.00
INTC $90.00
SDIV $74.10
KO $42.00
GLNG $135.00
TAL $70.00
Total income was €334.93 ($459.10), after tax my net income will be €259.74.

Where to Find Dividend Growth Stock


Using a stock screener is one thing, pulling high quality information out of it is another. Here’s a list of metrics I use for FIN VIZ and TMX Stock Screener to build my lists.

TMX Stock Screener (Canadian + US Stocks):


The TMX Stock Screener is interesting as you can get the dividend growth… and you can get it for US stocks as well! So even if it’s a “Canadian Screener”, you can work with it to find US dividend stocks. The combination of FIN VIZ and TMX Stock Screener will definitely give you a complete list of great stock pick possibilities.
5 Year Annual Income Growth Rate: between 1 and 100 (if sales don’t go up, dividend growth will eventually be jeopardized).

Current Dividend Yield: over 3% (I think 3% is reasonable in the current economy. I sometimes cheat and look for over 3% in the hopes of picking a gem with a 2.75% dividend yield).

Return on Equity: Over 10% (I want companies that use my money to create wealth. Keep in mind that you’ll need to look inside each financial statement to see if the ROE is stable over the years).

5 Year Annual Dividend Growth Rate: Over 1% (I know that I told you that we are looking at double digit dividend growth but the crisis in 2008 creates some statistical data errors as several companies stopped their dividend growth approach during that period)

Current Price Earnings Ratio: Under 15 (I’m looking at companies that are undervalued. Since the average P/E ratio of the market is historically around 15, it’s a good start. I sometimes cheat and put 20 if I don’t get what I’m looking for)

FIN VIZ (US Stocks + Some CDN Stocks trading on NYSE)


The only bad news about FIN VIZ is you can’t get the 5 year dividend growth metric. This is why I published a list from the TMX instead of FIN VIZ.  It’s a good thing you can get them from the TMX stock screener! But this stock screener shows others metrics that the TMX doesn’t have… In order to a good research, you have to select other metrics to pick stocks that will show great dividend growth when you look at their financial statements. Here are the metrics I use:

Descriptive:
Dividend yield: over 3%

Fundamental:
P/E Ratio: under 15
EPS Growth next 5 years: over 5%
Return on Equity: over 10%
Forward P/E Ratio: under 15
Sales Growth past 5 years: positive
EPS Growth past 5 years: over 5%
Payout ratio: under 70%

Recent purchases

In June, I bought the first Kraft Foods and the Alerian MLP's shares, as well as I added the Global X SuperDividend ETF in my dividend portfolio. In July, grabbed my net Golar LNG, unfortunately a little too late, because the rise in the share had already begun in the past. In August, I added the AT & T and I bought a new pharmaceutical company Pfizer Inc. My last purchase in August was Altria Group Inc., which I bought for $ 33.51. It gives me a 5.7​​% annual dividend yield.
At the end of year 2013, my intention is to increase the size of my equity portfolio still with a few new purchases.
