Wow, I had to read that twice. Yes a great strategy. I have done some of that, but no where near as much or in depth. Down market, grab the reliable dividends, and reinvest them. The individual price of the stock, short term is not the goal, its more the number of shares bought with the dividend, at a bargain price and long term share price when it rebounds. I have done that sort of thing for a long time. I'll need to think on it for a bit. I'm slow that way, but great thoughts on it. Thx

yup.

its very simple.

I also want to add that i never sell my positions, I let the stop losses do it for me, so it takes emotion out of it, and its a all or nothing event. So over time, my positions become massive..its literally a snowball effect, or exponential growth.

Fck all the guru's out there....the only advice i follow is Warren Buffett and his advice is literally free all over the internet. Read the strategy i outlined in the previous post, and then revisit some of his teachings and his words of wisdom, and it will all make sense.

People think i am insane until they see my money market account and I don't do this for a living...ROFL.

outside of equities there's always TIPS which are treasury inflation protected securities, indexed to inflation. gold or commodities also work. Taking into account the above, I came to the conclusion that it is much more lucrative to simply stake dependable coins like Atom on P2P.
Which stocks with healthy dividends would you recommend to have a closer look at?

It depends on your strategy and investment objective. are you trying to maximize dividend yield or get some sort of alpha (excess return over some market benchmark) by picking the high yielding dividend stocks that also have the potential to outperform their peers?

generally I don't advise individual stock selection unless you have lots of excess cash to spend (aka lose), have experience with investing and aren't troubled by brokerage fees. I would look at ETFs if youre looking to buy and hold for a while. Vanguard, ishares for example. I am holding two vanguard dividend ETFs, a canadian dividend fund as well as a US dividend fund. The best dividend stocks will be ones that pay a high yield that have also increased their dividend annually. there are indices like the 'dividend aristocrat index' which tracks these exact companies. that's a good starting point. consumer staples and banks are generally good dividend payers S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats | S&P Dow Jones Indices

I'm generally a growth equity investor, so higher risk. I rotated to about 20% into these two dividend funds which are both diversified to give me some protection in this uncertain market

Ukraine, inflation, instability in bitcoin markets are not good for bitcoin right now. no more than 2% to 5% of a growth/value portfolio if you're feeling speculative is my hot take lol. I personally do not own any bitcoin directly nor do I have any holdings that invest in bitcoin. that might change, but a savvy investor never writes off an investment opportunity permanently, it's no for now, not no forever

the hardest part is starting. open a trading account with whoever is your main bank. buy some exchange traded funds to get a feel for a how transactions work. many banks offer very good access to research and technicals that you can use. yes you will pay probably $10 a transaction and yes there are platforms that are free, but starting out with your bank is a nice first step. if you have a self managed retirement account it's very similar

compound interest is the 8th wonder of the world. depending on your age and investment goals a few growth and value exchange traded funds can take you a long way. anything specific about starting out that is giving you angst. I've been active in all sorts of markets both professionally and personally from money markets, bonds to equities and alternative investments...

I have been buying more bank of nova scotia. It has been paying around a 6.5% dividend and has never reduced it's dividend in 125 years. I hve it set on a div reinvestment plan (DRIP), no fees as it buys more bns stock every 3 months.

I don't really have any angst about starting out, I'm just curious about the best way to get started. I know that I need to open a trading account, but I'm not really sure what the best way to do that is. I'm also curious about what kind of fees I would be charged for transactions.

I also don't really know much about compound interest, so I'm not sure how that would work in terms of my investment goals.

Thanks for your advice!

Thanks for your advice!
my suggestion would be to open a Roth IRA with whoever your main bank is, whoever you do most of your banking with. In Canada we have something called a tax free savings account. everything you put in there is not subject to taxes, unlike most regular brokerage accounts. the Roth IRA should be similar, it will have limits on how much you can put in there or withdraw but everything should grow tax free in that account. open a roth IRA, put a few hundred $ in a month and invest in index funds to start. you will likely pay a small monthly fee on your account but enough trades and that fee is waived (in Canada it's 3 per quarter, so not much). transaction fees will probably be around $10 per trade, which isn't so bad, all that will be laid out for you


if your goal is to save for retirement and invest funds you don't plan on withdrawing or don't plan on withdrawing very often, then a tax free structure is best. without a lot of buying and selling you won't incur a lot of fees either. careful though, if that tax man sees you using a tax free structure as a high frequency trading account (lots of short term holding periods) they will come after you

compound interest is a term that means you're earning interest on interest, basically reinvestment of any income which will then earn more interest and the cycle continues. easiest example is if you have a 10 year bond paying 5%, each year you reinvest that 5% interest into more bonds and do that every year for 10 years. it's a similar concept with stocks and reinvestment of dividends

TLDR:
- open a roth IRA
- put a few hundred in every month, whatever you can manage
- after you've got a few hundred in there, buy some value ETFs (blackrock, ishares, something simple to start). then buy some growth ETFs as well. it's better to do one trade of $500 than 50 trades of $10 (less transaction fees most likely - I pay a flat fee per transaction, regardless of value traded, I would assume Roth is similar and you can find that out easily)
- if you're nervous about losing $ or have a shorter horizon, high dividend ETFs will be a good play
- identify your ability to take risks (financially, mathematically what can you handle - ie do you need to buy a house next year and can't afford to lose any $ at all in the short term) vs. willingness to take risk (do stocks keep you up at night even though you've got a lot of savings and can tolerate market swings). this is important to help you shape your portfolio.

After this hit, flip to a backdoor ROTH. Plus, I'm looking at some stocks again- Apple, PayPal, two railways, and some others. Healthcare too.

I Bought BTC when it was 16K, and now it's boosting up to 21k. So, I made +24% within two months and cashed out. It's not a bull run, but I pray for it. I dream of moving to Mallorca this year, and property prices scare me.
