My future Payout Machine
#11
Thanks for some great tips & recommendations MarcN!

I definitely plan to add some more defensive stocks to my portfolio, just eager to get started so I have prioritized some high-yield, preferably monthly payers to get the snowball rolling Wink

Nothing to be ashamed of, you trade in similar number of shares as I do. 

Keep building that machine!

January summary:

Portfolio total value down a lot, due to a lot of my US stocks decreasing in value.
On the plus-side, January was my all time high dividend payout month so far (6.2% more than previous record month nov 2017).

ahh, the joys of breaking your own records all the time. Smile
I think T was a pretty decent buy, even at that price. I added a bit myself from $1 lower, even if I wasn't planning on it.

If I was starting out today as a new DGIer, I'd pick several core stocks that I want to build a portfolio from the ground up. Why several, because, some will be and some will not be in that buy range. How many would I pick, not quite sure, maybe, 15 to 25 individual companies. Out of due diligence, say out of the 15 to 25 companies only 5 companies are in that buy range, I'd just keep pummeling money into those 5 with all the others kept on the sideline in that watch/wish list. I would only pick core/foundational type investments, the forever holds to build upon. After the foundation is built, then I'd branch out.

The things I look at

p/e

fp/e

peg

beta

divi

payout ratio

ffo

affo



and trading costs....my trades are 4.95......every trade cost bothers me, it just does, so the fewer trades the better.
