I find interesting the exercize of summarizing my GG positions. It was easy because unlike Anurag, I have only 85 stocks. Here I go.
This list includes only the positions I sold since 2012/07/01. The returns include commissions and income, and are not annualized. The main criterion for selling, in all cases, was the too-low (or even non-existent) dividend, except PRD which was forced (grrr, now I know why I don't like preferred stocks).
PRD, +174% (this was forced)
BAM, +0.02% (no kidding; I admit price anchoring here :-)
B) Added to.
This list includes only the positions I added to since 2012/07/01, along with the price I paid. I really mean "added" because I opened no new position on a GG stock since 2012/03/29 (CHEOY).
ITRN, 10.90$ (orange portfolio)
CEL, 6.06$, 8.86$ (speculation)
ARCO, 13.06$, 13.48$ (orange portfolio and I'm enticed by the growth prospects here)
TEVA, 36.85$ (mainly averaging down)
NTDOY, 13.38$ (speculation and orange portfolio)
GSK, 44.58$ (dividend, miam)
The returns include commissions except on the share I still hold, plus all income (including writing of a few covered calls), calculated as of 2013/03/28.
SLT, -48% (managed to be worse than CGA!)
CGA, -46% (will sell when appropriate for cap loss harvesting)
CEL, -30% (considering to sell)
ARCO, -10% (will add to it)
TEVA, -6% (considering to sell)
PT, +26% (considering to sell)
CRESY, +32% (considering to sell)
AMX, +42% (considering to sell)
BLX, +80% (will add to it)
WMMVY, +115% (considering to sell)
Another aspect of the discussion is what I've done after GG to compensate the loss of international coverage. As you've seen, I've kept (even added to) a few orange stocks. But mainly, I subscribed to Income Investor and opened positions on seven of their international recommendations (one more, and I'll have bought all their international recommendations which are not on hold). As a Canadian, I also own four Canadian stocks that most of you would consider international (Canadian tickers): CM (+54%), P (+127%), PWT (+64%), RY (+144%).
