  1. You've been deploying capital like crazy, YD. Awesome selections! Some of the names from above that I'd like to add to my portfolio include MMM, GD & ADP. Looks like you are making a strong move to build up the MSFT position... it's a good one.

  4. Young Dividend,

    Wow. That is a lot of capital in there. A lot of names in that listing that I like. Enjoy the deployment. Hopefully the trading fees weren't too much.

    1. He has no trading fees... and I'll be heading over to Merril Edge with him once I hit 50k in 2-3 months.

  5. Is there any reason you added to the other utilities, but not Dominion Energy? For $65 a share it is looking good to me right now.

    1. @ Brian: I prefer lower payout ratio companies since I'm still younger and I want growth. Dominion has outlined a decent growth plan but I find them highly leveraged and the payout ratio is high. D is also riskier to me due to their balance sheet and credit quality. Out of all the utilities my favorite is NEE.
