Dividends & Income
As a prop trader for my own brokerage account and Roth IRA, I am similar to any other home gamer; only difference is holding a BBA in financial services and brief industry experience in the wealth management field. I've always had a passion for "Wall Street" since I was younger, and I have great respect for the pioneers of the industry.
My investing style is very close to that of Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates. Large index etf positions act as a great hedge to the bi-polar nature of owning indiviual equities. My portfolio predominantly consists of a long in Vanguard's VTI of about 35% weight of my portfolio. This Multi-Cap core position provides the ultimate in diversified U.S. domestic equity
with greater attractive returns vs. State Street's SPY.
Of course ETFs can not create impressive alpha all on their own. Therefore, I am long a set of prudent, but not boring equities. I research and look for companies with stellar balance sheets and market capitals. Some of these include long positions in: T, JNJ, RDS/B, PG, V, HON, and what has become a bit of a spec/casino-esque play..AAPL. I believe the appropriate combinantion of technical and fundamental analysis should be considered prior to making any investment decision.
On occasion, I play my luck with the steroid-leveraged 3x ETFs of Direxion. Be it SPXL or SPXS, they're always fun (when you're on the winning end of the trade of course).
I am long a little bit of BOND, Bill Gross's Total Return bond ETF, as my position in fixed income. Being in my 20s I choose not to be bored with over loading on such an asset class...yet. Plus we all know what happens when interest rates rise, right? I know at some point in time, I may have to increase my fixed income holdings, however I prefer equities for income generation.
I stay healthy, dont smoke, and drink green tea several times a day. So assuming I live to 100, I will have plenty of time to not only seek my alpha, but enjoy it tax free when I begin withdrawing from my Roth at 59 1/2!
My profile picture was taken while vacationing and looking for rental properties to purchase on the beautiful coast of Maine; off the piers of Portland.
Cheers, and Best of Luck/Fortune on your investing endevors!
