Ultra Defensive plays (5-10% YOY return) suggestions?

Reddit Stocks

16/05/2021 - 23:47

I recently was fortunate enough to be accepted to medical school which has allowed me I get a line of credit in Canada that exceeds what I will realistically will need (other students have confirmed this). The current interest rate on such a loan is only 2.2%, so I was wondering what some thoughts are on investing my LOC. I don’t have to make any payments for at least 6 years so I can hold my investments at least that long. I was thinking about investing in some residential REITs with solid dividends or perhaps insurance/financial or even a dividend ETF. Was wondering what some thoughts are on this or if there are any defensive stock recommendations?   submitted by   /u/Saucy_mattsi [link]   [comments]

  1. Best defensive stocks in a downturn? WMT JNJ? (18/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I was looking through last year March 2020 "crash" and looking at how much various stocks, some of which I own, lost. SQ lost about 50%, PYPL about 30% and VTI was around 31% I think. JNJ lost about 18% and surprisingly WMT only lost 10% from February ath to March low. So for me WMT looks like a defensive winner. Are there any other stocks that are more defensive during corrections and or crashes? Are WMT and JNJ good defensive plays?   submitted by   /u/apooroldinvestor [link]   [comments]

  11. Low Investment Account Transfer Suggestions (14/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi, I am a new member of the subreddit, and a few years ago i invested $100 in a mobile app to explore trading with relatively low risk, due to a small initial investment. Now, I still don't have a lot of money, and after the whole GME debacle recently, I want to pull out of my current account and move elsewhere. I did look at the wiki here, and there are a lot of options, but all of the recent events has left my head spinning, contradicting some of the suggestions on the wiki I'm not sure what I should be looking for in the first place, and some suggestions would be immensely helpful. Right now, I like having no commissions and access to fractional shares, because it doesnt punish my low balance. I'm no sure if there is anything out there for me, but if there is I want to know about it!   submitted by   /u/yeeshue [link]   [comments]

  12. Where’s the gold and silver? Big money unsure about long term inflation? (15/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    given the scared chicken with its head cut off state of the market the past few weeks, inflation is obviously on everyone’s mind. It’s caused a sizeable sell off as wall street rotates from tech into safer plays such as real estate and defensive plays. My question is, if big money truly thinks the fed will pull the rug and raise rates, why did they buy assets that are already inflated? Real estate is up 30 percent on average, not exactly undervalued. Why haven’t we seen inflows into gold and silver, precious metals are age old hedges against inflation/recessions yet gold, silver and gold miners are barely moving? Is the market really betting on a rug pull or are we just witnessing a classic case of panic selling on bad news?   submitted by   /u/rickylong34 [link]   [comments]

  13. Best Index Funds and ETFs? (17/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hey guys (… and girls)! I am currently in the process of rearranging my portfolio. I’ve come to accept that the majority of my funds are going into the two mentioned above rather than me actively stock picking. It is going to work as a “savings account” and funds will be added monthly. I don’t necessarily want dividends, as I’d rather just keep everything invested and withdraw as needed down the line. What are some of your suggestions for long terms plays? :-)   submitted by   /u/MrNoOneYet [link]   [comments]

  14. Help rebalancing (VOO+VXF vs VTI etc) (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm 31 and I only just started investing this year. The whole WSB thing got me interested, but quickly found I prefer the idea of investing vs. trading. I don't have enough time for regular and ongoing DD into multiple holdings. I'm based in NZ and use Hatch Invest. Right now I own a mish mash of stocks, ranging from Apple to Sony to Baba, to VACQ. I'd like to set my portfolio on somewhat autopilot, with 10-20% for speculative plays (I want to keep my VACQ for eg). I'm bullish on certain plays, and I enjoy the personal picks aspect. I'm only a few thousand into investing so far, and only put in a couple hundred a month, so now seems like the ideal time to rebalance before moving forward. So I'm looking at one of the following options, and would love suggestions or reasoning on ratios and combinations: Option 1: 40% VOO 20% VXF 20% VXUS 20% personal picks Option 2: 60% VTI 20% VXUS 20% personal picks Option 3: 80% VT 20% personal picks Appreciate any advice or options.

  18. How ultra-rich own stocks? (24/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Do we have information how the ultra-rich own stocks? I'm quite confident that people who buy 10m dollars worth of a specific stock with plans to own it for multiple decades do not want to own it through the Street Name brokerage as it adds to the risk of what to do if brokerage itself financially fails. Super wealthy probably don't want to bother with paper certificates either as it is cumbersome and outdated. The final option that google told me is the so called Direct Stock Purchase Plans, but those are usually used for employees of the companies and they constantly get bad reviews for how easy it is to work with them. So the question is then, how do the ultra-rich buy stocks for the long term?? The only option comes to mind is that they have their own brokerages registered with SEC and they buy stocks directly this way. Does anyone know anything about this topic?   submitted by   /u/IuriiVovchenko [link]   [comments]

    Good morning investors. To cut to the chase I’m at a crossroad. After a massive loss (for me) on GME and AMC, I told myself I need to stay out of stocks for a while. Well, I saved $3,500 to invest and I don’t feel right letting it get dusty in my checking account. Here’s the stocks currently on my list, I’m open for any suggestions. (I have separated my allotted money into sections, that’s why some relatively good stocks are at lower number figures) -$SPY - $600 -$VUG - $450 -$APPL - $375 -$DKNG - $400 -$CCL - $400 -$TRIP - $250 -$WH - $225 -$SPWR - $200 -$FSLR - $250 -$AXP - $350 These are all meant to be medium term plays. I’m thinking around a year taking profits at my own discretion. Thanks a lot, everybody   submitted by   /u/Hcrain99 [link]   [comments]

  24. Newbie Investor (15/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hello people of the stock world, I've been doing my DD for the past few days and I made a list of what i want to have in my portfolio. Before I buy into them, however, i wanted to get any feedback or suggestions on those stocks and ETFs. I am aiming for medium risk, and i don't want it to be like a 3% yearly return from a saving account. I am still young and learning so I have time to win and lose. I'd say I'm looking for around 10% return per annum. The list of stocks I have in my list so far is below. The stocks are mostly blue-chip stocks, but I chose those from a list of around 30 stocks based on my research, Also, I know an etf can cover most of those stocks, but i feel like i can get more from having them individually unless I'm wrong in this aspect. - Stocks: Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Adobe, Airbnb, square inc, alphabet, Netflix, PayPal, Shopify, NVIDIA, Amazon, Walt Disney. -ETFs: IUSA, HMCH, EQQQ, VUSA, MSCI, IH2O, VWRL, IUKD   submitted by   /u/Straight_Cold_5111 [link]   [comments]

  25. What criteria do you use to justify buying a stock vs. Just owning VTI or VOO? (17/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Mine is usually the obvious in that I think the stock will outperform the index over either a short or long time frame. But I'm wondering if some would also buy certain stocks as a larger holding as a defensive measure against downside loss on a certain percentage of your portfolio versus cash/bonds. For example I can think of JNJ of course. It's largest drawdown was around -34% if I remember correctly and it's worst year was -10%. It's averaged a 14% return since the 80s.   submitted by   /u/apooroldinvestor [link]   [comments]

I also clearly see just how badly trading can turn if done incorrectly, so I'd like to take an online class to learn the right way to trade. Honestly, to learn about trading period. I don't even understand the terminology I see on my TD Ameritrade dashboard. Don't worry, I've only invested $100, an amount I can lose several times over with no real consequences.

  34. Agriculture (Farmland) Plays... (02/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello folks... just like to pick your brains about some good Agi plays. Inflation has returned and agriculture is an excellent way to hedge against it. Right now, I'm looking at Gladstone Land (LAND), Farmland Partners Inc (FPI) and a relative unknown... which I find really cheap as well as intriguing... Vital Farms (VITL). LAND and FPI have great looking charts and LAND looks to soon test new highs. The first two pay a good divi and Vital is partially owned by Amazon... 4.1% I believe... where it most likely contributes to whole foods products. It also has a small float of around 40 million shares and is heavily shorted at 20%. They just had a great quarter but the SP was knocked back down.. presumably to allow shorts to cover. Anyways, has anyone else been looking into these plays? Thoughts?   submitted by   /u/bifburger [link]   [comments]

  35. I created an options screener for CSPs and CCs using Python (07/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I just finished up this program that screens options to look for the best probability and highest return options to sell as CSPs or CCs. I'm not very experienced with Python but I figured I would put my knowledge that I do have into putting together this simple command line program to (hopefully) make your guys' screening experience a bit easier and faster. Although a bit of a caveat, it uses the Robinhood platform to pull the data from so it'll require you to have at least a Robinhood account (it doesn't need to be funded though). Using their API I was able to get it to sort either stocks that you choose or Robinhood's top 100 stocks into stocks within your price range, a good probability of winning (more than 85%) and its percent return. Anyway, its on GitHub to download and you can modify it any way you like (and if anyone has any issues with it or suggestions for improvement I'll try to add/fix it in the program). Anyway, I don't know if this will be useful or not but I figured I'd just put it here.

  36. Covid plays (22/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Secondary covid plays! Besides the obvious vaccine development. What is everyone’s thoughts on other plays? Air purifier company’s, at home tests, Xpress Spa which now is conducting airport rapid tests. Online edification and other things that will be influence for at least the next 2 years with the covid news. I feel that another long play will be the climate control aspect. If you look at the speculation of obviously covid and lung breathing and how everyone started teleworking and pollution, emissions and other particles were at all time lows. I see this being a great influence. Plus the fact that Biden is heavy on climate change. The Paris agreement and top scientists saying we have 9 years to change our climate.. any stock in these categories should do well.   submitted by   /u/Goat_Either [link]   [comments]

    Yesterday NYSE was closed, and a favorite stock of mine had a good day in other markets.

With Webull it appears I can buy in Chinese markets, but I'm also curious about finding live price activity of American stocks in India and Europe. Any suggestions?

  41. Dividend Portfolio and/or Growth Stocks (29/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello so recently i maxed out my contribution for my TFSA and RRSP (I am a Canadian resident, i assume the state’s equivalents are roth ira and 401k). I still want to keep investing my money in accounts that aren’t sheltered from tax. I was thinking of starting a dividend/ETF portfolio mixed with some growth stocks to maybe start building a dividend portfolio that maybe one day in the next few decades i could live off of. I’m 19 years old so i’m still pretty young and can afford some more risky plays but i am also considering starting a dividend portfolio. My TFSA is mostly risky high growth plays (ones i cannot discuss here). My RRSP has more safe plays (such as Apple, VTI and VOO). What do you think is the best approach i should take or what do you guys recommend as i don’t have much experience in the market, just under a year. Thanks!   submitted by   /u/marcusiothebarber [link]   [comments]

  43. Off the grid for next two months, what ETFs should I invest in for maximum growth before leaving? (21/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m going off the grid for two months and want to put a good chunk of money in somewhat safe ETFs that will hopefully boom while I’m gone. Anyone got suggestions for what has the most potential in the next two months? I was thinking weed stocks have clear potential to boom further with the Biden administration so thought this would be a smart bet, but with the economy really starting to reopen soon, I’m thinking some industry’s that will rebound hard like restaurants and such will have an even higher upside. Basically, if you had a little over a thousand dollars to throw in some stocks and not look at for a full two months, what would you do?

  44. Somethingh about the market doesn't feel right to me (18/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    In the past week or two I noticed the market is behaving very strange. The momentum was lost and Im starting to get a feeling the market is preparing the ground for a sharp correction anytime soon. -Physical assets prices increase, somewhat rapidly relatively -10 Years US bond yield increasing (Dont forget it was 0.6% at the peak of the collapse a year ago, around 1.3% today) -Defensive stocks gain very nicely for such a red day (KHC, GIS, CLX, QSR and a few others) Just to make it clear I'm still long, I think my positions are pretty defensive and are well positioned for a correction, but I do think I'll start hedging. Not recommending anything, just copy pasting a post I posted on a related forum.   submitted by   /u/nuriel8833 [link]   [comments]

    Hey, I really, really believe in a lot of the companies like Zoom, SQ, Teladoc continuing to do quite well moving forward as we get back into a hybrid model. I held ZM and SQ, but sold off TDOC and a lot of other COVID plays last month because I feel like regardless how good the earnings and news on the company, when good Vaccine news and reopening chatter happens it absolutely destroys the stock price of these companies. Question is, do you feel summertime will be prime for getting back into these plays ahead of potential COVID spikes in the Fall, or just long term success for these companies at a cheap price even if no spikes in Fall? How are you playing it? Recent TDOC vid here... https://youtu.be/d6BAuaDLYQU   submitted by   /u/HEAL3D [link]   [comments]

  47. Has anyone ever spent time trying to reverse engineer the plays these “FURUs” push and get a feel for what the criteria is behind them? (27/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    So far I’ve determined they’re usually small cap and low float. Typically they’ll have a slight run with a minor dip and that’s where these guys make their calls to buy. Then they proceed to jump 2-10% and proceed to dip. Now I’m not gonna sit here and say they’re just P&D plays and that the Atlas guys are monsters because personally I don’t give a fuck. I’d rather understand why it is that makes their particular stocks so easy to work with. Anyone have any ideas or input?   submitted by   /u/xnmb1 [link]   [comments]

  48. It appears that some people don’t understand (or never heard of) “Volatility Drag”... So here is a mini-lesson (24/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Imagine you are considering four stocks: Stock 1: 10% return every year Stock 2: 30% return year 1, -10% return year 2 Stock 3: 40%return year 1, -20% return year 2 Stock 4: 120% return year 1, -100% return year 2 You start out with $100 and hold for 2 years. Stock 1: $100 turns into $110 turns into $121 for a total profit of $21 Stock 2: $100 turns into $130 turns into $ 117 for a total profit of $17 Stock 3: $100 turns into $140 turns into $112 for a total profit of $12 Stock 4: $100 turns into $220 turns into $0. And you are done. All four stocks have the same average annual return of $10. But the more volatile stock has much higher volatility drag that reduces overall profit. In the extreme case you lose your shirt. There is a formula for it: Expected return over a long period of time is mu minus sigma squared divided by 2, where mu is mean and sigma is standard deviation. The reason I am writing this - someone asked a question: “Why not invest in triple-leveraged Nasdaq ETF? Yes it will go up and down a lot but it’s long term average return will be triple the regular Nasdaq.” Well, yes, it will, but volatility drag will be huge as well and will drag down your expected return over time.   submitted by   /u/Dowdell2008 [link]   [comments]
