Is investing in 20-25 stocks really the best form of diversification?

As we approach 2020, are you bullish or bearish on U.S. stocks for dividend growth investors?

Definitely bullish. I expect this market to go a lot higher. However, there will be corrections on the way up. By “a lot higher” I am referring to the secular bull market which in my opinion will last for the next 15 to 18 years and delivers substantial gains. However, it will not be a Continue reading →

AGNC – Time to say goodbye

I have been invested in AGNC since 2008 and I liked this company. But it is time to depart from this investment as it no longer meets my requirements for dividend investing. I wish, it was.

What is the best way to enter stock trading with a limited budget for beginners in 2020?

Are you referring to “stock trading” or “stock investing”? Because there is a huge difference between the two. If you really mean “trading” then unfortunately you I have bad news for you.

Do you prefer trading options over stocks even though options are riskier?

Options are not riskier, in fact, they are safer than stocks. Here is an example: Trader A buys 100 shares of a stock ABC for $30 a share. Trader B sells a put contract of underlying ABC with 26 strike and collects 0.31 credit. Stock drops to $24 a share. Trader A is sitting at Continue reading →

Going into 2020, is there too much optimism in the stock market?

In fact, there is not too much optimism despite markets moving higher. Too many people are sitting aside expecting a crash, too many investors are pulling money out of the market (check equity funds outflows), too many pundits are speculating and competing in predictions who would nail the coming crash and recession. All this is Continue reading →

How do I select good trend stocks?

Well, you don’t (sort of). No one can predict what the future would look like. And past performance… you know that cliche. So, it is not about whether the stock is good trend stock or not but about the quality of underlying business. If you know the company you know what to expect. So, although Continue reading →
