But it's a whole 'nother year!

Hello there, little one!

Although I haven't posted in a while, I wanted to let you all know:  I'm not dead.  Not yet.  Actually there's nothing wrong with me except laziness.   I started this investment experiment about a year ago and I wanted to write some sort of year in review.  Since I last posted, I've added to my shares of CVR Partners, LP (NYSE:UAN), Dominion Resources Inc (NYSE:D), Diageo (NYSE:DEO) and every month I invest in an ExxonMobil Corp (NYSE:XOM) DRiP.

Although I bought the first of these stocks a year ago, I figured this was as good a time as any to take a look back and see how things are going.  The following is a snapshot of my current investments including dividends and brokerage commissions.

, +26.8%
Apple, +57.5%
Brookfield Infrastructure Partners, +27.2%
Costco, +22.7%
CVR Partners, +17.1%
Diageo, +17.6%
Dominion Resources, +10%
ExxonMobil, +4.5%
Flower Foods, +15.4%
Terra Nitrogen Company, L.P., +64.1%
Vodafone, +8%

I'll leave you with a super-weak motivational speech my uncle gave me when I had to postpone my plans to attend college...
"This year we'll make enough money from the harvest and we can hire some more hands and you can go to the academy next year."  [more]
