My Watchlist

My Watchlist

I’ve mentioned in a post or two that the advice you get will vary greatly based on where you are looking.  I get my advice from three main places and I try to employ strategies from all of them:

  • Bigger Pockets for real estate advice
    • Real estate advice with the belief that you should only use retirement accounts for a company match
  • Reddit’s Personal Finance Subreddit for general advice
    • Big into index funds and not owning individual stocks
  • Various Dividend Investing Blogs
    • Promote individual stocks that pay dividends

With all that being said, here is my current watchlist as of 2015-04-09:

  • NMM – Navios Maritime Marine
    • This is a dividend stock that has been paying close to a 15% dividend, everyone is pretty bearish on it right now, but I’ve been watching it to see how it performs/if they change the dividend.  They should be announcing their next dividend toward the end of this month
  • MAT – Mattel Inc
    • Everyone’s favorite toy company.  Another dividend stock that pays around 6%, their stock price has been declining for about 9 months now.  I’m keeping my eye on it for the coming weeks/months, I may jump in over the next few weeks.
  • COP – Conoco Philips
    • This stock was at all time highs mid 2014, and has been declining since then.  A lot of people are bearish on the oil markets, but their stock price looks to be turning around.  They pay a 4.44% dividend and it could be a good addition to my portfolio.
  • T – AT&T
    • A nice stable stock paying a 5% dividend.  I’ve been on the fence about this one for a long time, it’s not a stock you can expect much growth out of, but a stable 5% dividend is nothing to scoff at.  The stock has been declining for about a year now, so I’ll keep my eye on it and see what happens over the next six months or so.
  • FUSVX – Fidelity S&P 500 Index Fund
    • This is the big brother to FUSEX, it is the same fund with a $10k minimum investment, it also has a lower expense ratio.  I’ve been thinking about this one for a while now, it’s the $10k minimum that has stopped me from pulling the trigger, maybe soon.
  • FSTVX – Fidelity Total Market Fund
    • Similar to FUSVX, this is the big brother to FUSMX, with the same $10k minimum investment and lower expense ratio.  Similar to above, it’s just hard to come up with that much cash.
  • Rental Property
    • While not a stock/mutual fund, it can be a valuable part of an investment portfolio.  Even if the stock market crashes, people need somewhere to live.  I’m thinking about looking for a commercial property, I just really need to set up some time with a realtor.

Let me know if you think/have any suggestions for me!

    Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after going through a few of the posts I
    realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m definitely delighted I found it
    and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back frequently!
