It’s been around 6 months since I set up my second experimental Dogs of the FTSE portfolio, so it’s time for another quick update.
Note that this is not part of my main investing strategy, it’s just a ‘fun’ part of my portfolio but any dividends earned are reinvested.
So how have these unloved shares done?
As at close of trading on 20th July 2018, the portfolio was showing a 10.84% gain from its starting value.
Including dividends received, it’s a 14.44% gain.
Over the same period, the FTSE 100 Total Return was 7.95% so the Dogs are still looking good on both counts so far.
However, since we know that anything can happen to make the markets jittery (trade wars, for example…), I’m not celebrating just yet!
Next update in another 3 months’ time!
