What are your winners & losers today?
I might go back to weekly updates here unless there is a notable day. I am not complaining considering market volatility but down about .2% this week. Port is almost 2% off ATH. I am pretty sure that is better than average.

DG was my weekly loser down almost 10%. Oil running strong again this week.

I'm still about $20k down from where January started, and $33k down overall from ATH. It's going to be a while Smile

I've set reasonable expectations for 2022 and so far they seem valid. I see no reason the market should crash hard. I believe it is highly unlikely we see a sustained rally until some things play out which will take half a year or more. If stocks run, the market will likely take it back soon enough. We'll collect income. I''ll sell some options as the market will just churn the premiums away so I can do it again. I might trade a few stocks for entertainment. I might weight a sector a little less or more if it seems to make sense.. But mostly I am sticking to my plan because I am diversified. Half of my investment years looked a lot like this one is starting out.

The joy of dividend growth stocks is that they give you two ways to win. Price increase is the best, but if that's not working out, you still have the dividend increase to look forward to. Also, price increases are also often thwarted later on, whereas dividend cuts are rare.

I'm currently planning an approximately 75/25/10 split of new money into dividend growth / pure growth / income stocks this year, so ideally I'll get up to ~ $1,000/month of yummy dividends.

Exactly.  I see the youtube kids down 75% on a port full of no profit companies that pay zero dividends.  I absolutely knew it was coming but take no joy in their pain.  It's an awful feeling to realize you may get zero return from your entire portfolio for five years or more.  Not even a small dividend you can DRIP.  It's not a good feeling, and turns people away from investing for a decade.  We need the younger generations to help us run stocks higher.  When it happened to me I cut my losses, loaded up with JNJ-XEL etc and turned that port off for 5 years.  That is when I learned dividends can take away a lot of the sting eventually.

Oh man!  I had edited the post from the original 60/30/10, which is probably more accurate.  Thanks for noticing.

He doesn't count 3X ETFs as real leverage lol.
