The real-money Inflation-Protected Income Growth portfolio is designed to find and buy companies that:

  • Look cheap to fairly valued.
  • Have decent balance sheets.
  • Pay well-covered and rising dividends.
  • Fit together fairly well from a diversification perspective.

Companies in the portfolio can be held indefinitely, as long as they fit those criteria. But as portfolio manager Chuck Saletta explains in the following brief video, sometimes things change, so it's important to not get too attached to a company or its stock.
