January 2016 Performance

Well it's been a wild ride for the markets in January, and Neu Grufti road that wave. I wound up in the black for the month, so I'm off to a good start beating the indexes. It wasn't the result of anything more than having a diversified portfolio in solid companies, the class and boring 'don't put all your eggs in one basket'. With dividend reinvestments and some dividend increase announcements, my annual dividend totals are off to a great start as well. Both my Long Term Growth Holdings, Canadian and US, are up an identical amount (4.34%) and as they make up the largest chunk of my holdings, I am glad for it.

Bear Stock: Methanex is down 11.46% in one month, really hoping to see an upswing as increased capacity at their Geismar facilities blunts the impact of lower product prices

Bull Stock: Canadian Apartment Properties REIT is up 11.82% for me this month. Predictable cash flow that`s grown regularily over the years, some overseas exposure (with ownership in an Irish REIT they spun off), and a place to put over peoples heads in good times and bad. It`s being a landlord without the hassle.
