HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN MONEY PRINTER... This method works during all markets, with an added benefit during bad or flat times. It is quite simple as well. And a great way to start of portfolio that requires a little hand-on action, which I enjoy myself. STEP 1: Invest your money in a wide variety of high yield monthly dividend paying tickers. Some are better than others (some are horrible), so doSee more

How diverse is your portfolio? Are you spread too thin? Too afraid to let anything go? Too top heavy? All your eggs in one basket? While this really comes down to personal preference, there are definitely some pros and cons to discuss and understand. First, one thing I see a bunch on Public are tons of people with 100 or more positions. The pros: well, you’ll probably never miss out on stocks that pop!… because you own almost every stock there is 😂 Also, you will never feel the full effect of owning a stock that craters 30% in a day/week. The cons: your portfolio will probably never reflect owning stocks that pop 20+% in a day; mainly because it gets muted by the 75 other positions you own that moved .1% +/-. Secondly, I see quite a few people with less than 10 positions. The pros: if you have great conviction and true belief in a handful of stocks/ETFs then you may do just fine. You will be riding a roller coaster. Each position’s movement hits your overall portfolio just a little bit harder. Awesome when things are going up, but definitely more teeth-clinching when days go poorly. Say you own 5 total positions: $SPY $QQQ $AAPL $GOOGL $NVDA …well, you are probably one happy camper. If those 5 were: $NKLA $MRK $POTX $IVR $CSPR then it’s a different story and you probably should go back to the drawing board lol IN MY OPINION, the true sweet spot is that 10-29 range (with fairly equal initial position sizing) The pros: positions with big losses get mitigated enough to not make you want to cry, while still being able to bring a grin to your face when you see one having a breakout day! The cons: basically only not fully being able to appreciate a breakout performer in your portfolio. Quick tip: if you have tons of stocks and want to consolidate a bit, look for stocks that are same industry/sector/theme as each other and swap out that group for a single holding of an ETF for that industry/sector/theme. EXAMPLE: Own 6 different cyber security companies? Why not just merge them all and start a position in $BUG or $WCBR #newinvestor #beginnerportfolio #knowledgeispower #portfoliocleanup #portfoliodiversity

#HealthyHabits So if you were to actually be able to take a peak into my Fidelity investments these 4 ETFs would make up 70% of my individual brokerage account in Fidelity and $VT makes up 100% of my HSA. Today's #HealthyHabits I want to build on understanding ETFs and how they can be helpful.

#ExpRatio #InvestopediaCliffNotes The expense ratio can make a long term investor feel a special kind of way.

U.S. Treasuries (“T-Bill“) investing services on the Public Platform are offered by Jiko Securities, Inc. (“JSI”), a registered broker-dealer and member of FINRA & SIPC. See JSI’s FINRA BrokerCheck and Form CRS for further information. When you enable T-Bill investing on the Public platform, you open a separate brokerage account with JSI (the “Treasury Account“).

JSI uses funds from your Treasury Account to purchase T-bills in increments of $100 “par value” (the T-bill’s value at maturity). T-bills are purchased at a discount to the par value and the T-bill’s yield represents the difference in price between the “par value” and the “discount price.” Aggregate funds in your Treasury Account in excess of the T-bill purchases will remain in your Treasury Account as cash. The value of T-bills fluctuate and investors may receive more or less than their original investments if sold prior to maturity. T-bills are subject to price change and availability - yield is subject to change. Past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investments in T-bills involve a variety of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk. As a general rule, the price of a T-bills moves inversely to changes in interest rates. See Jiko U.S. Treasuries Risk Disclosures for further details.

Investments in T-bills: Not FDIC Insured; No Bank Guarantee; May Lose Value.

Banking services and bank accounts are offered by Jiko Bank, a division of Mid-Central National Bank, Member FDIC.
