If you were to pick 10 stocks today and hold them for 10 years

...or maybe even longer term, which ones would you pick for this buy and hold portfolio? Looking for some diversification to go with it.

Long term? Just pick an index fund. I personally go with a vanguard retirement fund.

I hope ThaBigFella weighs in. I like his investment strategy. I'd let him pick this portfolio.

Eta: Oops. Too late.

I personally think this is the laziest form of mutual fund investing there is. And one of the least effective.

I've heard that. The target date funds are basically total stock market/international stock market, and total bond market. Can investing in each one of these on your own, with more weight in stocks, be a good option? Basically, the Boglehead way? how many of you take this route?

haha fine fine if you dont want ricks cabaret, which is the ultimate stock in my book (when was the last time you saw a titty bar not making money?) then I would do 10% in each of these

1.KO - coke - no introduction needed

2.PM - Phillip Morris - encompass international cigarette market

3.MO - altria - encompass american cigarette market/ beer/wine market and potetntially marijuana one day

4.CVX - Chevron- Oil Major - great 3.4% dividend

5.Visa - credit cards - 80% of the world still uses cash

6.CHL - china mobile - big dividend, 700M users, thats double the US population, at 52 week lows now and chinese population growing by 80M annually

7.SNP - Sinopec - giant yield, chinese version of Exxon/Chevron ie 200B+ market cap oil, people laugh when I mention it BUT China sits on a way larger amount of shale than the US and we claim we're in a shale boom, once china develops fracking technology look out

8.Platinum - its very cheap now, and useful, forget gold, platinum is in catalytic converters and oddly enough china/india once again are moving towards having emissions standards since their pollution is awful, there will be a big demand for platinum. Platinum is very scarce, there is a fraction of platinum compared to gold/silver

9.KMI - kinder morgan, huge yield, biggest pipeline in the US, with our shale boom these guys will prosper for years to come

10 - split it among Shell(rds.b),Conoco, exxon,BP

My portfolio has all, but Im tilted more at the top to 1 particular stock but I love all these over the next decade

I think minerals,food, and water are going to be in big shortages in 15-20 years, the world population is growing rapidly and these resources are not as plentiful as you think..

Stupid question:

Say you invested $100 in a mutual fund and six months later it's worth $150.

Now you want to sell $50 of that mutual fund while keeping $100 (the original purchase still in the fund). How does the short term capital gain tax work?

Well, for starters, you either paid a loading fee to put that in, or you're going to pay an exit fee coming out.

And for number 2, since it's less than a year, taxable at your regular taxable rate.

it all depends on their dividend history for me. Every one of my stocks but ONE is a dividend payer with a nice dividend history and most have had dividend increases.

Look I personally hate precious metals, but platinum is the king of precious metals and it has a very important use in the world in catalytic converters. I know silver is very industrial as well but i don't think you realize how rare platinum is, silver is very abundant. To get 1 oz of platinum they have to mine like 10 or 15 ounces of ore I read once so it's not exactly something that is very readily available which is why it was once over $2000/oz while gold peaked at $1900 i think.

Plus most of the platinum is in south africa and they had all sorts of political issues with their mining industry and when they shut off mines, the supply is cut and the price goes up.

I like dividend payers, but I do own pplt...a little....definitely wouldn't buy the physical, I dont intend on bartering for bread and water with my platinum coins one day
