    Any business with exposure to the property debt default market.

    There's going to be some golden days for bankruptcy trustees.

  •  

    Eneloop shares never go down! I made 1 million$ by investing $9999 few years ago.

  •  

    I'd just buy 1 AU based ETF, and 1 S&P500 ETF, probably IVV

  •  

    VAS, VTS, VEU

  •  

    I would buy shares in a high yielding $80k luxury car

    •  

      But I don’t work for Westpac

  •  

    Ethereum

    asx - 1 year return
    ALL - 59.01%
    CSL - 56.04%
    NST - 63.64%

    MQG - 43.10%
    check 5 year Graphs for above.

    •  

      CSL is an amazing company by the way

    •  

      How much capital did you invest initially??

        I high recommend VDHG. A large portion of it is VGS and VAS. I consider it as a buy and forget investment for those who are investing for the long term and do not have time to rebalance their portfolio.

        • +1 vote

          Thanks, I had a look and like it

        •  

          Is the VDHG wholesale and can only be purchased through Vanguard or can you purchase it through Commsec?

          I've been reading about the Vanguard ETFs and got confused with the $100K minimum investment for the wholesale ones.

    I've invested in quite a few small cap stocks. It's really hit n' miss

    If you want to let the money sit for a long time, go for a bigger well known company that will just gain more market share over the years.

    Ie. WES, QAN (These are 2 that I can think of that have crept up over the last couple years)

    •  

      WES yes, qan I will pass

      •  

        I told a friend to buy into them when they were around the $2 mark.

        He listened to me and pretty much paid off his house.

        ….I still have my mortgage :(

    Put all in NDQ, which is the NASDAQ 100 index. It is already diversified, so there is no need to split your money. It is much easier to predict macro patterns as opposed to the likely price patterns of individual stocks. There continues to be a strong pattern of IT companies growing larger and they have the financial means to easily acquire any rivals. I cannot see this changing and only see this pattern continuing. Just look at what Amazon have started to do in Australia and think about the potential of the other IT companies if they start taking on banks or buying sporting rights, etc.

    Buy old bluechip, which have steady dividends. If ASX drops 30% it shouldn't matter. You can get near 10% return currently, with not too bad risk longterm.

    TLS and AMP look bad at mo, but that may be decent time to buy.

    ASX and western world's stocks are near all time high, so maybe look overseas for suppressed markets. Someone ?? said Russian; Agriculture; either Japan or China can't recall which.

    The world financially is pretty unstable longterm I guess, so cheap realestate. Say $150,000 city suburb home eg. 6167 last month one sold for that, with $250ish rent should I guess entirely pay for itself. You don't need much more deposit to do this.

    Anyway good luck.

    •  

      If I am going to buy old blue chip I will buy Brambles

    •  

      can you give example which bluechip stocks give 10% return annually?

    •  

      For short time investment, <2 years. Is it wise to throw in $100K into blue chip stocks or ETFs that return 10% dividend yield rather than just park the $100K into a savings account that earns 3% p.a? I'm looking to invest $100K to earn some passive income on the side. What will be the best way to do it? Or have I totally got the wrong idea??

      Thanks.

    My current portfolio:

    GMG
    MQG
    IAG

    Dogecoin. The currency of 2020. All hail President Yeezy!

    •  

      What’s dogecoin user case?

      •  

        1 DOGE = 1 DOGE

  •  

    You're best bet will be three ETFs. If I'm forced to three choices, then I'd go for one that tracks the ASX200/All Ords index, one that is an "enhanced index" fund over the ASX200/All Ords, and one that is an actively managed international portfolio.

  •  

    GEM - Got in at $2.30
    BOQ - Got in at $10.00
    MIN - Got in at $15.00

    All bought within the last few months. All currently above what I paid for them and with fairly good returns regarding dividends, especially BOQ and GEM.

    •  

      Nice

    •  

      still holding strong for BOQ now?

      •  

        haha - this was almost 2 and half years ago.. BOQ has bounced back but and will continue to rise like the other major banks..

  •  

    How do I start buying? With BTC, I'm in http://btcmarkets.net, but I've not started on ASX. Where?

    EDIT: Prefer one with app.

  •  

    My picks would be WAM, COE, PHK

    •  

      Don’t know any of those, will investigate

    •  

      WAM looks great as a dividend return investment!

      •  

        Yes I have to agree, looks good

  •  

    GOR , NINE and KLH

    •  

      KLH looks interesting, why would you say GOR is good?

      •  

        Once there mine is built by next year, the share price will go up.

    Okay so I hold TTT, so biased of course, but they're unique on the ASX.
    That is if you have faith in Australian manufacturing in 7 years' time (I plan to hold for 4).
    World's largest 3D printer opened in Vic and new to the ASX, they only listed in October 2017.

    •  

      Look any input on an industry I am not familiar with is great. Widens my prospective. Thanks

  •  

    Synlait Milk (SM1) - Manufacturer for A2M and few other brands
    RHC - Play on healthcare
    MAQ - cloud computing

    KFC?

    Host, so what did you buy eventually??
    After I read your message, I bought TLS at 2.8, ECX at 1.99, DXN at 0.22 and GEM at 2.5 (Damn…..).
    And I finally made some money today.
    I am thinking to buy AMP at 3.99, and SPZ at 0.24.
    What do you think??

    •  

      I wouldn't touch AMP. Why does their business exist?

      •  

        Why not AMP?
        I am new to share market.
        AMP seems in a low price now.
        I think their price will go up soon and with good dividend rate.

    •  

      I end up with the following:

      DXN
      FMG
      BUB
      ISU

      $2500 each. 7 year investment period

      •  

        Good luck! I hope it goes well!

  •  

    ROBO - Japan and robotics
    AUST - dividends with defence against tanking market, HVST worries me with the constantly lowering nav price.
    FAIR - clean energy, use ETHI if you don't want Aus dividends.
    VAE - Asia

    •  

      HVST is designed to have you re-investing 50% of the dividend payout, back into the fund. Total return is (has been) 11% if all dividends reinvested.

    •  

      Don't pick HVST if you want capital growth. HVST is targeted for retirees who wants dividend income payment.

  •  

    OP did you get onto Afterpay? They have since doubled

    •  

      I think it’s going a bit too quick too soon.

      Too much risk for me at this stage

      •  

        Fair enough.

        Goldman Sachs yesterday puf a $27 target on it

        •  

          I would be not surprised if it goes to $50

          However I still think one new legislation and its gone

  •  

    Just bought $25k of Westpac shares today. Dividends due to be paid in Oct. Also looking to buy CBA and RIO

  •  

    All on VAS

  •  

    10k all on VAS

  •  

    A lot of the advice on here is worth what you paid for it.

    If you are considering ETFs then 1/3 each into VAS, IVV and F100

    If you are looking for individual companies: BHP, whichever bank you do your banking with, and whichever supermarket chain you do your grocery shopping with.

  •  

    Personally I will buy:
    50% VDHG
    25% RBTZ
    25% HACK

  •  

    VRX

  •  

    Bitcoin.

  •  

    $9999 in VDHG

    •  

      VDHG is up by 0.49% YTD, -0.78% 1Y and 14.56% 5Y.

      •  

        Does that include dividends? Dollar cost averaging I am up 7.93% YTD which is not bad considering I purchased a large percentage before the crash.

  •  

    I would personally invest in myself and educate then make informed decisions .. it's ok to ask opinions if you know the basic but don't invest in ASX or anything on seeing other ppl doing it or based on media hype.

    VAS, VDHG for me

  •  

    VAS abd VDHG have been poor. Overhyped.
