Rebalancing my portfolio 2013

Posted on | December 31, 2013 | No Comments

I haven’t done much trading in my accounts this past year.  The stock market kept going up so I just monitored my holdings.  Toward the end of the year, I decided to lock in a loss I had in FNFG and offset it with some gains.  I bought INTC in December 2008.  Since then, I’ve been enjoying the steady and growing dividend($.64 a year in 2009 to $.90 in 2013).  However, I decided that it was time to diversify and purchase a different stock with more potential for appreciation.  I decided that I would sell enough shares to cover initial investment in Intel.  Between the dividends and the appreciation, I’m now left with 35 shares of INTC that I’ll hang on to and see what happens.  Although, I’m also tempted to roll it over to another stock.  I’ll let you know.
