i recently came into some money that i want to invest. my plan is to create a somewhat diverse portfolio. excuse me if i get some terms wrong i'm just beginning to research in this area and decide on what i want to do.
i'm thinking of going 60/40 with 60% of these funds going into an annual income system of some kind because that's low risk and will provide me with more reinvestment funds or i can always use it as an income supplement if i choose i suppose. i'll probably end up doing some kind of 5 year ladder scheme of some kind. it's just that the interest rates suck right now cause everyone wants them.
the other 40% i will invest in high risk/high reward stocks. i'm looking at dividends and prices right now so i'm not completely sure which ones i'll invest in yet. i've been looking at a couple paper companies and some companies in VICE (not sure i said that right). there's more on my plate to look at tho.
i'm interested in both high and low equity (again i'm not sure if i got the terms confused for what i'm trying to say, hopefully you understand) essentially bigger business's and smaller more volatile business's with lot's of growth potential.
anyway just thought i'd share that with you because i'm beginning to find it more and more interesting.
