We sold Seaspan (SSW), Yahoo (YHOO) and Sasol (SSL) this year while buying Union Pacific (UNP), Tata Motors ADR (TTM) and ConocoPhillips (COP).  Right now ConocoPhillips (COP) is on watch after cutting their dividend 75%, and LinkedIn was hit hard during their recent earnings guidance, also putting the stock on watch.
