UTX/O (Sell/Buy)

Buy Hold And Sell Signpost Represents Stocks Strategy

When there are limited funds with which to invest into our New Life Portfolio on a regular basis, I sometimes have to improvise.  This is the main motivating factor behind the “sell/buy” strategy I employ, where I sell an overvalued position and at the same time, with the newly acquired proceeds, purchase a new position.  A new position is acquired immediately as I prefer to not have the cash sitting uninvested.  The purpose is two-fold:

  1. It assists in building the portfolio cost basis (though not the portfolio value). This effectively allows me to lock in and reinvest capital gains.
  2. It increases/solidifies my dividend income stream. When I execute this strategy, the end result should be either an increase in the Projected Annual Dividend Income or a safer dividend as I trade riskier income stream for a safer stream.
