Managed Portfolios

Includes 16 different Industry & Specialty portfolios, each containing anywhere from two to 20 stocks, funds, or bonds. These are our choices for the best securities in each category. All are individually researched and continuously monitored by D.D. analysts, and are rated "buy," "sell," or "do not add." In normal times, our buy/sell ratings are updated monthly, between the first and fourth of each month.

ETF Monthly Income: Exchange-traded-funds paying monthly dividends.

ETF Growth Opportunities: Dividend paying ETFs focusing on growth sectors.

CEF Growth Opportunities: Closed-end funds primarily holding dividend-paying growth stocks.

Risk Ratings: All holdings in our Industry & Specialty Portfolios, except Corporate Bond have risk ratings that looks like this: a/b, where 'a' and 'b' are numbers ranging from '1' to '5.' The first number (a) represents "debt risk," which is the risk that higher interest rates would depress earnings. The second number (b) is dividend cut risk, which is the risk of a dividend cut triggered by a business slowdown. The ratings go from one to five, where one is the lowest risk, five is the highest risk, and three is average. The ratings are developed by Dividend Detective and may not agree with other published ratings.

E-Mail Updates: When conditions require an immediate change to existing buy/sell ratings, we mail updates to all subscribers. However, we only send them when immediate action is required and in normal markets, that rarely happens.
