I sold FCX just because we have a large position in the metals already and a few things about the company worried me moving forward so I felt its better to sell. The new addition is Ark Restaurants with a great yield of 6.6%. If your not from NY or Las Vegas you may not know about ARKR but it is a consistent performer and I think as the economy improves it is a generous company with dividends. This is also a company I have in my personal portfolio. It does give us 2 restaurant stocks but both can be profitable and are run by incredible CEO's. This month I will be looking at MSFT to possibly add a position (watch for the update). We will also continue to add on weakness to positions in the portfolio.
