Hi Fools --

This new board is designed to provide a space to talk about the Inflation-Protected Income Growth Portfolio (iPIG portfolio), a real-money portfolio managed online on the Fool's free side.

The portfolio launched in December 2012, with $30,000. The objective of the iPIG portfolio is to attempt to build an income stream that grows at least in line with inflation over time. The method used to strive for that goal is buying the stocks of companies that:

* Pay dividends,
* Have raised their dividends, and
* Look capable of continuing to raise their dividends in the future.

The companies are bought with an eye towards valuation & diversification, and while companies may be sold if operations or valuations warrant, the hope is that churn can be kept to a minimum.

The portfolio is managed by Fool contributor Chuck Saletta (TMFBigFrog).

A few key articles: (Portfolio introduction) (Most recent selection as of 24-MAR-2013 -- with links to the prior selections) (An article on some reasons why a pick could be sold)

Looking forward to continuing the discussion.
