Nicholas Ward's Dividend Growth Portfolio: October Update

Published Mon, 05 Nov 2018 07:45:31 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

Last month, I posted my quarterly results and said that I would try and do a better job of posting regular portfolio updates for those readers/followers who don’t track Seeking Alpha on a daily basis and miss my trade-related stock talks. Well, here we go. October was a crazy month for my portfolio. I suppose that’s to be expected; last month was one of the worst in market history in terms of negative versus positive days. However, I was pleased to see that I posted strong outperformance relative to the broader markets. This continues the trend that I posted in Q3. I’m happy to see that I’ve built a portfolio that has the ability to outperform in both bull and bear markets (in the short term at least).

October Trades The first move I made during October was on the 10th, when I trimmed about 50% of my Merck (NYSE: MRK) position and used the proceeds to initiate a position in Texas Instruments (NYSE: TXN) at $100.05. I sold Merck at $70.80, locking in 27.7% profits on shares that I purchased last October at $55.41. I like Merck, but this isn’t a great dividend growth company. It’s a leader globally in the hot Immuno-Oncology space with its blockbuster drug Keytruda; however, it’s also trading at the top end of its historical valuation range. I believe Merck’s fair value is somewhere in the $65 range. Should shares experience weakness and trade at a discount, I’d be happy to buy them back.
