First batch of DGI stocks to buy
#21
As an aside, before I sent my old portfolio to my ex in the divorce settlement, I took a snapshot picture in Jan 2018 and saved it. One of my old stocks was Goldman Sachs, which really didn't do anything while I had it. But now, wow, it's really taken off. I doubt she still has it though; she hired a financial advisor to maintain the portfolio and I think he moved everything into mutual funds and etfs. But looking back, some of the stocks I will buy again were in the old portfolio like possibly GS, but also Hewlett Packard, Disney, Intel, and of course Johnson & Johnson. Though I don't think JNJ even with the vaccine will ever be the horse it once was.

Hewlett Packard note: I think the company split into two or three or something. The one to buy now is ticker symbol HPQ, not HPE.

Divide your available investment cash pile into 20 lumps.

When a stock on your list drops 10% off a prior high, you buy it with one lump. If it drops another 10% you spend the second lump on it.

Some will fall even lower of course but you have bought at reasonable prices and should be able to withstand some drawdown.

Others will pull back 10% and zoom, leaving you only 1 lump invested-for now.

Just be patient and buy what your analysis shows are quality stocks.

Pull up some charts on the Aristocrats and you will see how well this simple method works, especially if you have time on your side-unlike Fenders and me.

I have to admit I'm not disciplined enough to follow this strategy, and especially with tech stocks on sale right now.  I will be diving right in, though I will not buy very much if at all from stocks that are only exhibiting growth because they started spiking in October.  I want to see a continued growth trend in the 5 year chart.

Buying plan forthcoming.

Not all of these are dividend companies, but most are.
Very few on the list I wouldn't own at or at least near fair valuation.  It's not that important this minute, but you might familiarize yourself with the S&P sector descriptions and what subsectors fall under each.  It will just make it easier to follow the conversations on financial news, and the forum.  

Example: You didn't skip the industrials.  It doesn't get anymore "industrial" than CAT.  The Defense stocks are a subsector of the Industrials.  Auto manufacturing is very industrial as well.  MA and V are not banks.  FIN Tech would be much more accurate.  You have about six sectors covered with your list so you are just a little closer to diversified that you were last week.  There are arguably about 25 tech stocks on your list and you are overweighting a couple so not much diversification. This port will get smoked when tech corrects.  It will also do well when the Nasdaq does.  As long as you are comfortable with that you are good.   

Best of luck.

Of all my new stocks, so far the one doing the best is ... Target. I never would have guessed that. Up over 10% already. Second and third are Lowes and Home Depot.

Great to hear.  I am not adding at these levels, but those are the good ones that should treat you well.  Stimulus will keep them juiced for now.  This is also spring which is Christmas season for LOW and HD.  See how fast they make a no growth stock with a bit higher dividend look mediocre?

True, but I don't have many low growth higher dividend stocks. Most of mine are either really high dividend, or have significant last 5 year growth.

On the flipside, my 5 worst recent acquisitions are:
Royal Caribbean, a reopening play so I'm still hoping, at -7.70%
Twilio, a tech stock, at -9.75%
Carnival Cruise Line, the other reopening play, at -10.49%
Moon, an innovation (non-leveraged) ETF that looks promising, at -12.35%
Square, "financial tech", at -15.42% (ouch!!!)

While the last 2 days have been great, I'm still overall down about $20k from where I'd like my portfolio to be. It will have to "swim back up" on its own; after the refinance the budget is tight and I will likely be pulling the dividends out of the brokerage account and back into my checking account.

And my company stock is still mired in the 110s, so we won't discuss that Smile

I thought most of your DGI picks were solid.  I'm not qualified to judge much of your techie stuff.  The market takes an occasional break from insane PEs.  Just have to wait it out and see if they recover.  They will if the business is sound.  Unless you are selling them short term gains are meaningless.  My port continues to break all time highs.  Don't worry I'll get my chance to suffer when the market decides it hates half my sectors some morning lol.  

And the cruise line financials are trash for years, but don't despair.  I bet the Momo crowd will come back around to pick you up eventually.  Smile  The big money probably left the party for now.

Yes, with just a few exceptions my DGI stocks are doing well, and my recent pure growth purchases are doing poorly. I'm going to give everything at least a quarter before I start making any cuts. I'll post my portfolio here in the My Portfolio section when it's ready.
