It’s been nearly 6 months since I set up my experimental Dogs of the FTSE portfolio.
So how have the mutts done?
Are they still in the doghouse or vying for Crufts?
As at close of trading on 25th July 2017, the portfolio was showing a 5.24% gain from its starting value.
Including dividends received, it’s a 8.18% gain.
Over the same period, the FTSE 100 Total Return was 3.85% so the Dogs are looking good on both counts!
Showing its ‘pedigree’ is Capita (CPI) which was actually booted out of the FTSE 100 in March 2017. Persimmon is also looking good right now.
Four of the Dogs are looking a bit flea-bitten but there’s nothing to do really except to keep track of dividends as they roll in and see how things look in another 3 months’ time!
Riveting stuff! 🙂
