February 2016 Performance

Good start for Neu Grufti in 2016. While the greater markets have been down for the year, overall I'm up (final numbers aren't in, but January was a 1% gain and looks to be slightly larger for February). There's no complaints for me there.

There have been some bigger hits and misses this month, but overall, I'm happy to keep things where they are and look to my quarterly re-balancing for any major changes at the end of March. There were several companies that raised their dividends, and combined with small reinvestments and re-allocations, I'm well over halfway to the goal of a 15% increase over dividends paid in 2015.

Bear StockSuperior Plus has taken a big hit with lacklustre results and some serious overhang resulting from their takeover of Canexus. I was expecting subpar performance until the deal closes, but the hit so far this year is enough to drag down my entire speculative growth index. Ouch.

Bull StockRogers Sugar has had a stellar year so far. For a boring but dependable stock, it's produced some out sized returns for me so far this year.
