- These are my personal notes to help keep me focused on retirement strategy in a methodical way.
- They will help remind me not to take any action that goes against my methodology.
- This blog post is meant to help me, not to entertain others.
Over time I want roughly 25% of the portfolio in individual stocks/REITs, the other 75% in ETFs/Mutual Funds.
Individual stocks/REITs portion of portfolio will be limited to a $200-300 position in each. No dividend reinvestment. No fractional shares.
ETFs/Mutual Funds portion of portfolio will have a full position in total US market, US mid cap, US small cap, total international ex-US market, international mid cap, international small cap, emerging markets small cap. Half position in international real estate.
Roth 401k will be funds only. Similar breakdown except I won't hold an international real estate fund and the emerging markets fund will be a large cap instead of a small cap.
