This brief FFJ Portfolio - February 2023 Report is an overview of recent activity.
I remain cautious about the broad market conditions and made no purchases during the month.
After reviewing Stryker Corporation (SYK) I disclosed my decision to exit this position in this February 8, 2023 post; I have not redeployed the sale proceeds.
SYK was a relatively insignificant position with total exposure amounting to only ~$50,000.
My investment decisions are based on risk, valuation, and long-term total potential return. Dividend metrics are of secondary importance. Nevertheless, I do track dividend income.
The income from the holdings within the FFJ Portfolio is accessible here.
During February, the holdings within the FFJ Portfolio generated:
- 'Core' accounts: ~$1,851 CDN and ~$2,023 USD
- 'Side' accounts: ~$1,402 CDN and ~$785 USD
February, May, August, and November are the 4 months in the calendar year in which I receive the least dividend income.
I received dividend income from the following companies in accounts included in the FFJ Portfolio and in retirement accounts for which I do not disclose details.
- Abbvie (ABBV)
