As I approach retirement age (goal is 2033), for the last 5 years I have been gradually moving my investments to a more conservative, dividend growth portfolio. This is the portfolio I have connected here.
I still have a growth aggressive portfolio with Fidelity, not connected for personal reasons.
My DRiP portfolio has 70ish stocks. This is why:
Instead of paying fees to ETFs, I use M1 finance to create my own ETFs. I have 8 “pies”, and in each pie I own the companies I believe will pay me my retirement dollars.
The pies are split this way: Tech, Consumer discretionary/staples, industrials, Energy/ Utilities, financials, healthcare, semiconductors, defense.
The rules to get on my portfolio will be part of the next message.
Some say it is too conservative, it again, 25% of my investments are still in growth mostly tech portfolio.
