In my previous articles on my yield portfolio, I outlined my portfolio construction methodology and presented ‘Top Ten’ lists for each sector. The next task is to choose the stocks. Rather than go just by yield, I also give credit for better consensus recommendations (from Thomson Reuters: 1 for a Buy down to 5 for a sell). And I also exclude stocks that worry me – for whatever reason.
