A third month into the Motif portfolio experiment and it was a great month for gains as the S&P 500 is up 5.57% year to date and our portfolio is beating the S&P by 1% (not including dividends).

Dividend Income

Projected Feb dividend income $35.74
Actual Feb dividend income $35.72
Growth of $-0.04

February came in 2 cents below our projected income and the loss was attributable to the variable payout of the ETFs. If we discount the ETF’s, income actually went up $0.17 or 0.5% thanks to a dividend increase from Omega Healthcare (OHI).

Portfolio Value

Pre-Retirement Retirement
Starting Value $10,000 $10,000
Current Value $10,657 $10,657
Cash Balance $70.82 -
Cash Distributed - $70.82
Total Portfolio Value $10,727 $10,657
Total Return 7.27% 6.57%

The market appears to be lifting all stocks with the exception of basic materials which has done a complete reversal, I’d attribute this to the Trump effect as he still has not laid out a plan for his infrastructure improvements making investors nervous. For the month Technology is still the hot sector but Real Estate made the biggest gains.
Interestingly we are starting to see money rotate into safer investments sectors as we are starting to see gains in the Staples, Utilities, and Bonds. Of course one month does not create a trend and we will need to see where this goes in coming months.

Portfolio Sector & % Allocation Gain/Loss
BASIC MATERIALS - 4% -3%
CONSUMER DISCRETIONARY - 12% 0.3%
CONSUMER STAPLES - 12% 3.66%
