A High Yielding, Diversified Portfolio that Offers 20% Growth
For all those seeking a high yielding portfolio that offers growth, here is a diversified ten stock portfolio that based on Friday's close offers an 8% dividend yield and 20% share price appreciation based on the consensus one year target price:
AGNC is a little more risky than I like but I love REIT's for a dividend portfolio. Personally, I hold NCT over AGNC because it is safer and more diversified. Do a little DD on NCT you may like it. It also has a long way to get back to its peak and I think it is on the way. As for utilities which are a great defensive holding, I am not sure NGG is the best one even though I hold NGG. I liked the idea of having one non US based. I was looking at Duk for a while..With Telecoms, I really don't think you can do wrong. That market is still going to grow exponentially! I think whether T or VZ is just preference.
Just to add to the discussion, here is my dividend portfolio as of today. I cut back to 10 stocks from 15 earlier in the year.
