DRIP Portfolio - A Weekly Progress Report
By Nich Sheldon

I have decided to add our hypothetical portfolio based upon my DRIP suggestions since taking over as the editor of DA in June of 2003. Below you will see each candidate listed by: date picked, picked price, current price, and the hypothetical gain/loss on each recommendation. Each week, I will update these numbers so we can get a clear picture of our progress (if any).

*************
EDITOR'S NOTE
*************

What a difference one week can make! Our HYPOTHETICAL Average Change on the active recommendations went from $0.65 to $2.24, or 3% to 6%. Bulls chanted "I think I can, I think I can," as bears seemed to have moved into hibernation. I am optimistic that our gains can hold up into next week, but am a bit worried that Monday's trading holiday may cause a lackluster of activity come Tuesday.

In light of the Memorial Day holiday I am not posting a new Drip of the Week column until next Friday. I hope that you enjoy your vacation and spend your time with family and friends.

See you next week,
Editor
Nich Sheldon
