Experimental Portfolio Begins

Back to list of posts

As promised in an earlier post I started a fictional $10,000 Motif Portfolio based on 12/2/16 market closing prices. The projected annual income is $391.67 or a 3.916% yield.

Base Portfolio as of 12/2/2016
Portfolio Value Projected Dividend Income
$10,000 $391.67

Not too bad of a yield considering the market is at an all time high but personally if I had to buy all of these holdings individually I would never have bought everything at once and would have waited for better prices. However, the point of the experiment is to see how a diversified portfolio in Motif will act.

While putting together the final numbers I thought all of the holdings were past their ex-dividend date but there were two pleasant surprises that will generate a whopping $7.19 for this month and is a nice start to generating our fictional cash flow. One area that may slightly skew the numbers will be the ETFs as the monthly dividend varies from month to month.

Now onto the good part…based on the original percentage allocation here are how many shares of each holding we bought with our fictional $10K.
