  • Buy The Sector Dips Portfolio: The Energy Sector Continues Dipping [View article]
    Timmies, no one is right 100% of the time, so don't be too harsh on yourself. That's why I average in if the price seem good to me, but it doesn't mean negative sentiments of the market should be ignored.

    Alex's idea is not bad. Maybe waiting a week or two will cool things down a bit. The Monday action was pretty crazy. Too bad I was sleeping when most of the action was happenin'

    @Timmies, "I just don't want to buy before I see a bottom in oil." -- That's a cautious way to do it.

    Timmies, XOM is getting close to the $65. Are you still planning to get more shares at that price?

    It seems the oil price could stay low for awhile, but I'd like to average down at one point, except that USD is so strong!

    Erasner, I'm building a rock-solid portfolio with rock-solid dividend companies, but I've traded GM before and holding KMI.

    After the Energy stocks came down so much, I'm kind of immune to the red numbers now probably because I assume they will eventually rise again. In the mean time, I collect their dividends.

    Erasner, yea, you do whatever makes you sleep well at night. That's the most important. I'm no where near retirement, and generally I actually feel safer buying individual stocks than a fund. Fund managers can buy/sell stocks for the fund as well as switch stocks in and out. I don't want them to have all the fun! lol I mean, I wouldn't know for sure what I'd be holding in a fund.

    However, picking individual stocks, with about 30% of my portfolio in Energy stocks, I'm really feeling the pinch. All I can do now is close my eyes and wait. With the scarce new capital I save from my job, I'm divesting into other industries where I can to balance things out. But I did add to Enbridge and started a position in TransCanada recently. Both are Canadian companies that are also listed on the NYSE. I think it's safer to buy pipelines and integrated oils than the other Energy companies.

    "Part of investing is your gut." Yes, and the gut (my stomach) gave me butterflies yesterday. And I sold a non-core for more TD shares. :D

    And 3M hits the 3% yield today. I just gave another thought about the currency exchange from Canadian to USD, and I've decided to hold off on buying US stocks, as with the falling market, there are increasing bargains popping up in Canada as well.

    BoomBoom,

    "performance charts in Google Finance are "price only" which doesn't include dividends. I much prefer Morningstar in this regard."

    No wonder I don't see any yield info on Google Finance. I better find those funds in Morningstar then. Thanks!

    Erasner, it seems like the whole market is coming down and has less to do with individual business performance (aside from Energy stocks).

    "On the bright side, I'm only 1/3 in stocks at the moment. If the market goes down substantially, I will put more money in. I think I'll forego picking any more individual stocks when I invest, and go with ETFs, Index funds, sector funds, and balanced funds." -- Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems you're uncomfortable with holding individual stocks as their price are coming down. But in reality, ETFs, Index funds, sector funds, and balanced funds -- they all go down just like individual stocks, but maybe psychologically, they're easier to hold on to because they hold a basket of things. Balanced fund maybe less volatile because it holds other things amongst stocks.

    Thanks for sharing SPHQ and MOAT. I always like to check out their top holdings.

    I won't suggest to get or not to get a money manager because it depends your goals of getting one. If you intend that they help invest your money, but you're already doing that with different funds, then, maybe there's no need for them, unless you're afraid you're missing something.

    Thanks Erasner. I've avoided MLPs and private REITs thus far as there are already lots of companies to choose from from public stocks to public REITs.
