Dogs of The FTSE – Q1 (2017)

It’s been around three months now since I created my Dogs of the FTSE portfolio so how have things gone for the mutts?

Nothing to report really.

The portfolio is showing a 1.17% loss from its starting value.

Including dividends received (£20.20), it’s a 0.34% loss.

So not very exciting, with a few Dogs gaining in value and the others showing losses.

Good to see dividends already coming in – I’m expecting around £100 by the end of the year from these shares.

Whilst I’ll be reinvesting these dividends, to keep trading costs to a minimum, they’ll just get reinvested into the rest of my portfolio as and when I make my usual purchases.

I’m not sure if I really want to see anything exciting happen with this portfolio, since ‘exciting’ might not always be positive!

Let’s see how things look in another three months’ time!
