This week, I opened up my personal stuff and shared my 2015 resolutions. I’m happy to say that I’ve stick to it for the first money at least! Hahaha! I’ve also reviewed a special investment vehicle paying 10% dividend. I’m also glad to see the oil barrel going back up as my portfolio is now showing more than 6% return since the beginning of the year! Not to mention Disney (DIS) which reported a great quarterly report, it was +8% on that day!
Here’s what you need to read this weekend:
My Own Advisor published a list of ETFs to buy if you want to build a well-balanced core portfolio. It’s a great list since you have both US and CDN ETFs to choose from. I personally use ETF to benchmark my performance.
Write Your Own Reality talks about Loyal3, an investing platform allowing you to buy stocks without fees! I definitely need to take a serious look at this platform. The number of stocks is limited (64), but they offer several great stocks such as Apple (AAPL), McDonald’s (MCD) and Disney (DIS).
Dividend Growth Investor makes a list of 6 quality dividend stocks for long term investors. My favorite is Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), but I hold 4 of them in my DSR portfolios.
Dividend Ladder looks at European dividend stocks. I’m not too keen on investing in Europe (since I know better North American markets) but he suggests some interesting options.
Lanny at Dividend Diplomats just bought Citizens & Northern Bank (CZNC). Low PE ratio, high dividend yield, seems interesting!
Tired of hearing about oil price? Why not target an industry that might benefit from a low gas price? Div Hut looks at the transportation industry and found some interesting dividend stocks. Unfortunately, dividend yield is apparently low in this sector…
Dividend Elephant bought… an ELEPHANT! He bought shares of Microsoft (MSFT). I prefer Apple (AAPL) if I had to buy a techno stock, but the recent dip in price makes it interesting.
A Special Mention to….
My Dividend Growth reviews his portfolio and shares with us the fact that he is… INVESTING OVER $2,500 PER MONTH. Wow… I can only dream about this day! When you think some people say they can’t start saving, this guy is a true inspiration!
Enjoy the weekend!
