I've played a few in last year or two and currently don't have any pot stocks but if I had one to invest in... GWPH.

Bought some last year at $64 and sold around $84. Wish I could have held on to it. Great company that makes some great medicine shown in CNN.

If pot continues to gain more popularity and acceptance from gov't, then I would imagine GWPH will do great on it's own or be an acquisition from a major pharma.

Other stock news... still holding on to my BAC and AIG and Chase and Fannie. Finally finally finally, we have a chance to get out of years of the Obama administration holding down banks.

Haven't been doing any new investing much but will try. My favs are always distressed stocks. Did buy some FCX at $9 and still holding but wasn't much. Looking at biotech.

Looking for how to buy companies that deal in marijuana. So far I've only found 4 on the stock market - GWPH, INSY, CARA, ZYNE. Let me know if anyone has any additional ones as I see this as an area that should be exploding over the next few years.

good job on the IRA

I have been looking at the high yield too, they dropped along with treasury bonds there. They' ve inched up, but there are some interesting ones.

Maxed out my yearly (2016) Roth IRA contribution for the first time ever (all at once) so I'm happy and will be looking forward to my refund to replenish my reserves.

With all the high yield stocks I've been buying lately, I've really been intrigued with adding NVidia (NVDA) to the portfolio. It's done gangbusters ytd, but I think it'll grow even more with its chips being used in so much smart tech going forward.

Woo! PLAY has now become my 2nd best IPO I've ever bought. They blew away top & bottom numbers vs estimates and closed up almost 19% just today to a new high. Thank goodness for loyal3.com to allow me to get in on the IPO at the opening price before the market open back in 2014.

As a long time patron of Dave N Busters, I always saw how packed that place is, not to mention unlike strictly restaurants or bars, they have a mix of revenue sources from food, beverage, gaming and live events.

Funny you mention that. Was looking this morning and, even though the market was mixed, fossil fuel-related stocks were doing well. Price per barrel is so close to that psychological floor of $50, and it sounds like OPEC is going to cut production.

I'm a bit leery of bottom fishing the riggers, and I was burned once with transport. There's a reason why those went down, and any yields are artificially inflated because of it. Higher interest rates are going to make any of those firms' capital expenditures more expensive, further cutting into profits. I'm more leaning to firms that have exploratory business or refining. CVX has been really great, bought it when it was beat up last spring and it's been riding high since & has a solid yield. Although it's an MLP, CQP has a nice divvy and stands to benefit from rising fuel costs, although I do have a limit order to sell once it breaches $30/sh. I'm trying to rid my portfolio of MLPs because that's one less complicated tax form I have to fill out :)

hey bartman, I'm thinking of bottom fishing the riggers. Guys like transocean, and noble. The oil rig count is finally growing again, and this yuge drop in bonds should lower the dollar, I am thinking. which of course raises the price of oil.

Offsetting that of course is that oil is so incredibly oversupplied lol. Any input?

Yeah Mike, the concept is pretty sound, actually. However, this is speaking to a mature crowd (assumably) who already has $500,000 in principal already and this is a way to preserve it through generating a higher income return than you're withdrawing.

It's WHAT the portfolio is comprised of that is the key. If you've got $500,000 of passive income, with equities yielding, say 7%, you get $35,000 a year in cash and the $500,000 isn't touched. The question is: Are you managing your expenses to live comfortably off of that? If yes, then you're all set.

Heh, one my stocks I knew would catch fire on a trump election, domestic steel maker Nucor. Not only would they benefit from protectionism, but their former ceo Dan Dimiccio is one of trump's economic advisers. Up 12% today

bartman, that is a great company. Many many times I have looked at them. I've done great with PG, it's a nice time in the cycle to have some easy defensive stocks like those HPC (household and personal care) companies.

Opened a drip account with Colgate Palmolive last month. It's been solid over the last five years with combined income and growth.

As for my best performing loyal3 shares, that has to go to Amazon. It's over 25% in less than a year.

As for the bulk of my latest, I acquired LTC. nice 4% div and great industry (senior care) that's resilient to economic conditions.

My FRIP dividend reinvestments are going towards GOOD which has a great monthly dividend, and DLR which is a reit that deals in cloud infrastructure properties.

That's awesome! It'll be fun for both, especially since she can watch it grow. You can also introduce her to drips, or you can try loyal3.com and she can buy pieces of shares with her allowance, commission free.

My daughter will be turning 14 this weekend and she told her mom what she would like for her birthday... a brokerage account with a little money in it to learn investing. :)

Setting up a custodial account for her. This should be fun.

Just bought shares of Church and Dwight this morning. They have a small dividend, but share prices have about doubled in last 5 years and they're splitting 2 for 1 next month. If you think Arm and Hammer, OxiClean, and Trojans can sell, then CHD is good for ya!

Yeah! I'm kinda surprised (a little) about the summer breakout. S&P's been flat last two years, which is ok by me, since we needed a breather, and some opportunities for me to buy on the dips.

I wouldn't be surprised to see another dip if fears of an beginning-of-year interest rate hike starts being bandied about.

Yes, divvy stocks can be a little more stable. The catch is checking to make sure their payouts are sustainable. Are they generating enough cash flow? (Cash is king, I always tell my students!) Are they maintaining or increasing their payouts (to help combat inflation--kinda like getting a built in raise)? Or are they overpaying? For example, a company with a great dividend, but as a percentage of income it's like 150% of income. May not be sustainable, and if they drop the dividend, the share price takes a tumble.

I'm looking for stability, sustainability, both earnings and dividend growth, and (a new factor) monthly vs. quarterly payouts. The power of compounding is more pronounced when I can reinvest my free cash more often.

That sounds like a great idea. Dividend stocks are nice; less volatile too

So after, what, like a year and a half of being range bound, s&P broke out. New highs

I've set a limit order to sell all my holdings in CQP. It's yielding almost 6% with. $1.72 dividend, and I've over double bagged it to a 109% gain. However, I've been getting rid of my mlp's and Canadian stocks to reduce my tax paperwork and looking for comparable yields of US stocks and CQP is the last one. Added more STAG lately since the price is great and they pay monthly. Just started with a couple shares of DLR, even though the divvy is lower, the share price growth potential is great because they deal in cloud computing.
I've shifted my goals as I've gotten older to income. Lookin at EPR, MIC, GOOD, APLE (not AAPL ) MPW, CLDT.
Ideally I wanna live off of the passive income while barely having to sell shares.

I picked up my first shares of AMZN through the loyal3.com site and it's done gangbusters in only a few months this year!

I still have my discount broker but best thing about loyal3 is its commission free, you can buy fractional shares, and you can get in on their ipos.

Cons are, you can't do limit orders, can't control the timing of trades, since they pool orders into one buy a day, and their selection of companies is limited. Still great for starters though.

My newest thing are monthly dividend payers. Their good yields compound much faster since you get paid more often. O is the best one.

You bring up good points on GM, with its low PE and good yield. You have to question why the yield is so high though; are they generating good cash flow to continue to pay the yield, and is it more attributable to the drop in share price rather than the potential growth of the business. Psychologically, folks are probably still leery of investing in that sector.
I, for one, have no auto holdings in my portfolio; that's one that isn't compelling enough for me, retail stocks also. Too cyclical.

Good job on Vanguard index 500. That's the first (and still) default index "set and forget" funds I got into when I got into investing while still in college. Each of my employee retirement funds are in some version of an S&P500 index from each job I've had.
Then I manage individual stocks in my own trading portfolio.
With the market up today, I let go of 4 high dividend payers, GEO, EFC, CYS, and AGNC. They've generated lots of cash for me to reinvest, but their share prices have done squat.
I've been doing research and recent added MONTHLY dividend equities, recently. O, which is prob the most well known one, has been doing good for the last year I've owned it, I've added STAG, and PFF today. Nice getting a monthly "paycheck" which I can plow back into more shares of something else (or the same) if I want.
With the Loyal3.com platform (commission free!) I've re-added shares of GOOGL, and started small bites of AMZN, and Netflix. I love how you can buy pieces of shares in small amounts over time.
