Stock Shares and Dividend Update
This month there was only one dividend payment with ERF. The new monthly estimate of dividends is $35.29. On the new transaction log on page 3 of the spreadsheet we added to different companies. The two new additions were Mondelez International Inc. (MDLZ) 95 shares and Seagate (STX) around 8 shares. I have a video about MDLZ on my You-Tube channel. STX is a company I heard from Pullingmyselfups channel his link is on my You-Tube channel as well. I aslo added to a few other holdings through automatic investing through Share builder.  


Thoughts
The major actions of the portfolio this month were the sale of silver and gold. All gold was sold and only 5 oz. of silver remain I do like having at least 1 percent in hard assets if the price is right. The next major action was the addition to International company  Mondelez international Inc. (MDLZ). This was a major purchase and now represents 20.4% of the account right behind the largest holding of MCD at 23.6% of the account. I like that MDLZ goals are to grow at least 7% a year and it has a dividend at 2% making returns at least 9% if not more.  The performance this month saw a drop in the accounts paper value but in income it rose and that is the measure I am looking for. One last note the portfolio is ahead of the SP 500.
