I am a beginning investor that has unfortunately entered the market at a time of high risk. The buy-and-hold method caught my interest at first but after the recent market fluctuations and seeing my long positions evaporate before my eyes I have now changed my philosophy. If I am going to be long in the market I will only invest in high-dividend yielding stocks and besides that I will properly allocated my portfolio to market conditions and also trade options for income.
My philosophy is evolving and I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge! I live in the Atlanta area so if you want to meet up to discuss investing strategies don't be afraid to reach out.
Light trader interested in dividend growth stocks. I own every S&P dividend aristocrat, and then some. The aristocrats form the foundation. I have ownership of more companies that I have placed on that foundation. I have several general rules about stocks. Rule #1: Do not buy a stock to sell it. Rule 2: Do not sell a stock you bought. Rule 3: If I am unsure if I should sell a stock, see Rules 1 & 2. Rule 4: If I really am going to sell a stock (fundamentals change, dividend frozen or cut, etc.,), then just sell it and do not look back. Rule 5: no foreign tax withholding (I do not want the money back later, I want it re-investing now, There are plenty of US and British dividend companies) and Rule 6: drip. drip. drip.
