My current Dividend stock portfolio

You can download from here:

This Portfolio dividend’s Yield is 4.23%

So with the current coronavirus situation and its massive impact on the stock market, my portfolio went down 8.04% which is the worst drawdown I had in one single month.
However, following my investing strategy, I found it a great opportunity to enter the market and hunt for good deals and that’s what happened, I ended up buying 16 new stocks

Also, for the first time, I bought an index fund, I’m not a huge fan of index funds as most of you know, I like to pick individual companies by myself, however, I found it difficult and expensive to invest in European stocks. Diversifying across Europe is one of my investing plans so I did some deep research and I found this interesting Vanguard Developed Europe UCITS ETF which pays dividends of 3.2% and covers most of the big companies I was looking for.

  • Kellogg Company

My current Growth stock portfolio

It is a simple, straightforward portfolio that will consist of 5-6 of big growing companies, I bought Facebook, amazon, google and I will add Alibaba and apple just after this coronavirus situation ends.
The reason behind creating this kind of portfolio is that I’m still far from my FIRE and this kind of stocks helps fast-growing my portfolio (returned 200-300% in the past 10 years) and when I will approach my FIRE I will sell them and the money will go to my dividends portfolio.
