There are things I would have done differently if I knew back when I started to invest what I know now. I would have gone just with dividend growth stocks, and probably or largely just Canadian ones. I have tried different things. I have invested in US and International stocks and in Mutual Funds.
I tried investing in Mutual Funds. With all the hype about Mutual Funds, I thought I should invest in them. After all they were managed by investment experts. It is not that I did not make any money in them. They made money because the stock market was going up and everyone was making money.
I have read the Investment Reporter and they advocate that Canadians should have at least 25% of the investments in US stocks. Others talk about how we Canadian should also invest in international stocks as the Canadian stock market is quite limited.
In future posts I will talk about my adventures in Mutual Funds, US Stocks and International Stocks.
On my other blog I wrote yesterday about Emera Inc. (TSX-EMA, OTC-EMRAF)... learn more. Tomorrow, I will write about Bombardier Inc. (TSX-BBD.B, OTC-BDRBF)... learn more on Friday, February 24, 2017 around 5 pm.
