DivGro Pulse: July 2017

Welcome to another edition of my monthly pulse article series.

Pulse articles are strategy focused and I monitor the health of DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks. I update the fair value estimates of every stock I own and use the information to identify undervalued stocks suitable for further investment.

Additionally, I review the recent performance of stocks in my portfolio to see if any of them are performing poorly. If so, I need to take appropriate action.

By Gaurav Sharma

There's a famous saying in the investment world: The greater the risk, the greater the return.
