DRIP Portfolio - A Weekly Progress Report
By Nich Sheldon

Below you will see each DRIP Recommendation 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
*************

We just witnessed one of the strongest sell-offs of the year this week, and it shows on the hypothetical DRIP Portfolio. In this market of uncertainty, it continues to get more difficult finding long-lasting winners that divvy out the cash. For this reason alone, we are going to sit on the sidelines this week. I anticipate a rebound next week, but this may be a little too optimistic as investors have had little economic data that supports any such thing. Rest assured Greenspan will raise rates on Tuesday, and it is anyone's guess how the markets will react. I will do my best at finding us a solid profit-bound DRIP by the end of the week, so stay tuned for the next Drip of the Week.
