Following is a quarterly update of the equity income model portfolio. During the next 2 months, we'll update the aggressive growth and conservative growth portfolios. During the past quarter, IBM, Limited Brands, Motorola, Sears Roebuck & Co, and Toll Brothers were replaced in the portfolio with Lockheed Martin, Pitney Bowes Inc, Raytheon, and Statoil ASA. As of February 15, 2003, the portfolio consisted of 16 stocks selected based on analyst recommendations and predictability level (ie, level 1 predictability meaning more predictable, level 2 predictability meaning less predictable). Since the data may have changed, contact 800-316-7015 or email@example.com for updates.
Since this portfolio is hypothetical, it does not contain any investor assets. The decisions were not made under the same conditions as those for an actual account. There can be no assurance that the author would have made the same decisions or achieved the same level of performance if managing an actual account. The hypothetical performance of this model may be of limited value in evaluating the author's past or future performance. The author manages other hypothetical accounts, as well as actual taxable and tax-exempt accounts, and recommends the purchase or sale of securities for individuals and institutions. The performance of his actual accounts may be materially better or worse than that of the model portfolio.
