United Technologies (NYSE:RTX) is a selection for the real-money Inflation-Protected Income Growth portfolio. In this brief video, portfolio manager Chuck Saletta offers three reasons why he's holding on to United Technologies' stock despite the company's modest gain since he bought it last year.

In summary:

  • United Technologies' market price is close enough to Chuck's fair-value estimate to continue holding.
  • United Technologies' balance sheet is solid, with a 0.7 debt-to-equity ratio.
  • United Technologies' dividend is well-covered and has room to increase as the company grows.
