August 2014 Stocksnowball Portfolio Review.

This portfolio will be updated at the end of each month with new activity and updates. I also have a tab on the home page with the spreadsheet data labeled Portfolio. I am extremely heavy on cash in the Stocksnowball portfolio at 70%. (I do own a Roth IRA where I have zero cash but am invested in long term income dividend growth strategies.) I use The Stocksnowball Portfolio for short, medium, and long investments. With 70% cash you can say I am extremely cautious for the moment. Some might notice that First Majestic Silver and Buffalo Wild Wings do not pay dividends. I really don't like investing in companies that don't pay dividends. I do make exceptions for well run companies but usually if I do get a nice gain am more likely to sell them over dividend paying stocks. With both companies I do like management and the growth of the company.

In past blog entries we have accumulated

Royal Dutch Shell plc (RDS-B) at $86.80 with a September .94 dividend payment pending. Blog post here! 

Target Corp (TGT) at $58.70 with a September .52 dividend payment pending. Blog post here!
