Fidelity, Vanguard, or Schwab. Open a personal brokerage account pn line. Transfer money by check, wire, kr connect your checking account for ACH transfers.

It goes into a holding account, then you go back online and choose what stocks or funds to buy. For long-term investing, the best is a very low fee broad-based total stock market index fund ETF.

Shorter term...well, that's the hard one

If you want specific advice... post a seperate question telling your goals, how much risk you like, and when you need the money....there are people who know the specific funds better.

Buffet's only major reductions in the last quarter were USB, KR, GM. He added ATVI, CVX, PARA, CE, MCK, ALLY, OXY, and AAPL

What I did personally was sell everything (except AAPL) earlier in the year at higher prices, and then begin repurchasing over the last weeks as we approached the 52-week lows. I didn't re-purchase every position though. I abandoned some companies lacking the fundamentals to withstand the inflation / recession / stagflation and put those back into other positions I thought were stronger for the new environment. I added more energy, utilities, staples, and commodities than I previously held, trimmed down the tech stocks to those with the widest moats, and added some income producing ETFs.

I'm using the SPDR sector ETFs to create my own allocation in indexes, and holding ETFs in green energy, EV and battery tech, and water, but my biggest single stock positions are still in tech (AAPL, NVDA, MSFT, GOOGL, ADBE, META, et al.) although I re-bought them all after their declines (to date). Other big positions by percent of portfolio are: FDX, CE, ALB, JPM, ALLY, MCK, GM, DIS, CARR, KR, KO, ACI. Also re-purchased recently after declines.

As the market continues the decline (crash, really), I do worry that I might not have restructured my portfolio enough. But I know that I managed to protect myself from 50%+ losses on many positions and reduced those losses (so far) to 3-5% instead.

If we get another bear market rally I may make further changes by exiting some positions and increasing my cash holdings again, since the bottom is starting to look even further away than I thought it was all year. I'm still betting long-term on certain tech: semiconductors, green energy, electric and autonomous vehicles, and water-related resources.

It's interesting to go through this transition because I built my whole portfolio starting in the early 2000s with small investments in tech companies like AAPL and CSCO. And it's disorienting to try and find footing now, knowing that everything I learned over those years no longer applies.

Yeah I’ve slowly been moving money for 10 years so had to double down during the 2020 oil crash when it spiked at 12 kr to the dollar. Meant to move it back after oil stabilized since I figured it was just a matter of time before it went back to 12. Gonna have to dig extra deep in my pockets for this next one. :)

Sure, but how can India peak when income levels aren't rising exponentially to the same extent that China, Korea or Japan's once did? If incomes don't grow then will people buy the goods that Indian companies produce? India does have healthy petrochemical and IT services exports but no ETF will let you pick that although there are India internet/tech ETFs emerging.

The fact that business would rather pay someone who is in India 50 percent of what they would have to pay someone for the same posstion in the US, is part of the reason we got in this mess in the first place.

I understand that this is wsb, and "greed is good" but, the fact that companies refuse to take a hit in their profit margins is the number one reason why prices keep souring, and the reason why workers have to demand more pay, because they absolutely can not live off of what would have been decent wages just two short years ago. It's going to reach a point where no body is going to work for anything under 25/hr because even if you have a partner, you simply can't afford to pay your bills on anything less. And then since workers are "demanding" so much more, they are going to push those costs onto consumers rather than CEOs and the top 1 percent taking a pay cut.

If you're a small business. Fine. Whatever. I get it. But if you are the likes of Walmart, Google, Apple, KR, and the rest of the lot who rake in billions of dollars in profits, they are the ones who should be bunting the raising costs and taking the brunt of inflation, rather than push those costs onto consumers while keeping the same amount of purchasing power themselves.

For example. Coke. Now there is absolutely no fucking reason why a 20 oz bottle of soda is nearly 3 dollars. Even If the cost of production and the cost of shipping has gone up 100 fold (which I honstly doubt) it costs 25 fucking cents to make that bottle of soda. Let's even be generous and say now it costs 50 cents to make that soda. And let's say retailers want a 15 percent cut. So why, are they not wholesaling for 1 dollar (100 percent profit margin) and retailers charge 1.15, plus tax? The same thing with every product out there almost. There is no reason why prices have gone up in the last year like they have, other than corpate greed and companies unwilling to take a small cut into their bottom line. All the while hurting consumers across the world.

It's a 🤡 🌎, and I am ready for it to complely crash and burn.

I think it's not a bad idea to buy now for a small portion of your investment account, let's say 10%. Personally I'm doing like this -> I have an investment plan, for example, I'm going to invest let's say in KR, I set up levels where I'm going buy these are 45$, 39$, 31$, when a price hits one of this level I buy this stock for 10% of my bank for this company (I have a budget per company I'm going to invest, for some it's 1k and for other, it's other money). I suppose it's a dumb but solid strategy, but only when you invest in solid companies not GME etc.

I really like the OKR (Objective and Key Results) model for goal setting and tracking. The objective keeps you focused on what you want to accomplish and the KR's help you know whether you got there.

The most powerful part though is for each KR you also outline what actions you can take to reach the KR. It's the action list that keeps you on track and taking daily action to reach your objective.

Google the topic and a ton of info will come up.

I guess we just fundamentally disagree, and I think you're the one discrediting numbers with zero substantiation other than "trust me bro".

> Your base case assumption is that the world will be 100% EV by 2030 and these legacy car brands

Not 100%. I'm expecting 80-90% in Europe, NA, CH, JP and KR, which is most of the new car market.

> and these legacy car brands, that have survived over a hundred years through various crises, will be dumb enough to bankrupt themselves trying to chase a slow moving trend.

It's irrelevant how long they've been around, all that matters is what they're doing today. And what they're doing today is refusing to follow the customer's wishes, and most of them are getting worse rather than better. If your actions say you're just another Nokia, I don't have any reason to believe you're not.

T hasn't been a good business for a long time, not seeing the catalyst for that to change. The yield (which was lessened this year) has been appealing to a lot of people for years only to see the stock continue to crater. The telecom business - while such a part of daily life given phones - is imo just not as good of a business as many think. In a recession, customers may not prioritize paying their bills on time and the CEO has said in recent months that they have already seen a little of that happening. If you look at 2008, from the top in 2007 to the bottom in 2009, T lost about 44%. If you are really concerned about a larger recession, I'd rather a WMT or ABT.

"I've definitely taken a loss on it over the past couple months but I can't quite stomach letting my PARA go"

You've had media stocks get obliterated this year and you may see some consolidation in these names (which and at what level and if any who knows), but I don't really understand the appeal that these names (see also WBD) seem to have for many people. The media business is not a great business; VIAC and DISC were mediocre stocks at best for a very long time. I could understand if someone was interested in media in terms of gaming given microtransactions, but as for tranditional media, the streaming growth story of the last decade or so is over.

"KHC 6%"

I'd rather WMT or KR. KHC has had a lot of issues in recent years (share price is still down 56% over the last 5 years) given the way that 3G manages that company. There are some good cpg companies but with TGT, WMT and KR you're really seeing the rise of the store brand. On the last Target conference call: "And in Food & Beverage, our Good & Gather brand now is a $2 billion brand that continues to see very strong growth." So I think there are some good cpg companies (PG, a couple of others), but I'd rather own the shelves that the brands are competing for and in a lot of cases, they're increasingly competing with the store's own brands.

That's great. What you're saying is true I've also received some amazing appreciation in the community. I'm in India too. The problem I'm facing is with perception. Sometimes, the supplier will ask, "Sir nahi aa rahe?" "Ma'am aap akeli aa gayi" and if they've talked to any other employee before they're like "paise ki baat toh maii Sir se hi kr lunga, aapse kya bolu" like I've to assure them or inform them I'm the decision maker. Does this happen to her too? Or should I change my approaches if there is any other way?

No, strictly a momentum play. Some decent sell off opened the opportunity for signs nice swing. I usually try not to hold overnight unless it’s an oversold swing play. $KR is not one of those for me.

SPY has broken through a few major moving averages and is testing a downward-sloping trend line. If SPY can break to the top side I will be looking to day trade stocks like ABNB, AMZN, KR and TSLA.
**ABNB $120 C 23 SEP 2022 — 6.60**
Straight calls and puts are the lowest probability trades and the current market conditions do not favor them at all. I will personally be looking to long shares since the credit spreads are not ideal.**AMZN $126/$127 PCS 23 SEP 2022 — 0.20**I am looking to get filled for at least 0.20 credit on this spread.
**KR $49 C 30 SEP 2022 — 3.00**
These calls have high delta, comparatively low theta and low IV. I think that these contracts will do just fine barring a market sell-off.**TSLA $266.67/$270 PCS 30 SEP 2022 — 0.60**I am looking to get filled for at least 0.60 credit on this spread.
As the break out (potentially) unfolds I will be watching all of these tickers to see which stock has the most aggressive buyers. The stock with the most aggressive buying is the one I will choose to long for this leg up. Without knowing how next week will unfold, I really like KR and TSLA right now for longs.

Not earnings, just saw a break out on the charts. My $KR calls actually closed $0.94 ITM 😅 I sold them before $KR ripped over $51. Missed out on huge profit, but hind sight is a bitch.

Hood 1DTE’s the day before earnings? Brave. Looks like you went full retard into 9/16 KR calls the morning of their earnings pump while it was already up 3%? Pretty retarded.

But you took profits on those kroger calls which was a power move because I would’ve held (since you were in the money) and lost it all the next week 👍 well done

To be brutally honest. M looks absolutely horrible as a swingtrade. SPY is up 3 days in a row, which means nothing at all in the big picture, except for daytraders. The overall trend is still very bearish. if M decides to move up there are strong MAs ahead which could smack it right down with a sledgehammer. Just curious, why chose a weak stock like M when there are much stronger stocks like KR? Please no astrology lines explanation, these make zero sense to me.

LOL this did not age well. Bought the opening dip. EZ 3 baggers. Why would anyone hold calls or puts on this type of stock is beyond me. Just wait for the IV crushed calls/puts in the morning. KR almost always move more than 3% either direction but it's not worth the risk of IV crush.

Sure the company got liabilities. But if you have followed the short reports they have been debunked. Still they throw a shitload of lies on twitter.

The property market in Sweden are abit tricky. But this company really have good income on rent from its costumers. And very long contracts with Swedish countys.

Many institutes say that it should be worth around 30-40 kr. (15 now).

So all in all a good company and a long term investment with good short term squeeze potential.

Nice analysis, I don't 100% agree but this is very clearheaded. Thanks.

I'm ignoring Gitlab, breakeven is too far away. Also, my broker isn't showing 9/9 weeklies at all, just 9/16.

$NIO however, calls for this week are so cheap it was worth buying as a lottery ticket, very little risk. I bought ITM & set up a trigger sale if it opens lower than it is now. All in all a totally acceptable gamble.

I agree $DOCU isn't looking good as a stock but it's priced in, rn it would be risking $400 and going to need an immediate 10% drop to even break even. It could certainly happen but that's not an opportunity I'd race to get into. You might make money here, I'll have to applaud you from the sidelines. It's sitting right above recent support right now, maybe if it moves below I'll short. If the trend is your friend this definitely looks like one to short.

$KR meh.

Interesting about $DWAC, which I'd gotten on that faster.

I sold all my BBBY morning. Vanguard says I still have 0 to buy new stocks. I calculated how much the sale would give me and want to use that same amount to buy KR before their earnings release. When I try to do that vanguard gives me this warning message "This purchase exceeds the current funds available balance. Funds are due in your settlement fund by the settlement date of the trade. Otherwise, securities in the account may be liquidated to pay for the purchase, and the account may be restricted". Do I ignore it and buy or do I need to wait a certain amount of time?

Baby spin off and/or merge BBBY with Kroger (or bought out by KR) so they can move to mega stores similar to target and continue to carry a household name of BBBY.

Worse case is share offerings but that would be the exact opposite of a buy back they just did.

There's a lot more, but if I had to make a concentrated portfolio of ~10% of each I'd do those. Also this Aubree's you can buy fractional shares, as stocks like BLK are expensive

Saw what happened to KR and their earnings? I think the same will happen to GIS. These companies just aren't sexy enough for the market no matter how outstanding their earnings beat.

KR is actively ramping up their logistics capabilities and also has a partnership with BBBY.

Spot =/ prompt contract which is a futures contract. The only thing that matters is the steepness/flatness of the entire curve structure and whether it is backwardated kr in contango. You can believe whatever you want, doesn’t make it correct.

Commodities are cyclical and no “commodity guy” ever thinks we are just in one type of market the entire time.

Just a reminder you are taking advice from strangers in the internet (honestly most are probably younger than you and have no degree in wealth management, finance kr anything related).

Plottting out your retirement with the info given is next to impossible. You aren’t on track, you are on track. None of this is possible to determine. Call an expert. So much goes into planning. Your Medicare options, the age at which you’ll retire, your spouse, where you end up residing, your anticipated expenses (not your current cell phone bill), your budget and what you plan on doing (travel for example, kids, college), insurances, investment allocations.

16.9% interest x 20,000 kr = 3380 kr in interest or 9.26 kr per day.

Since you get the first 50 days for free, you're looking at 315 days of interest x 9.26 kr = 2916.9 kr of interest.

Add in the fees of 195 kr per year plus 25 x 12 = 3411.9.

3411.9 / 20,000 = 0.17 or 17% interest

Getting back into the market after getting out in Dec 2021

Used to be very tech heavy, which worked out for me but I know it could have been less desirable if timing was off. This time, I’m trying to be more diversified while focusing on stocks where those charts are consistently going up and are hopefully relatively recession proof.

In terms of my investment goals: I already have a very safe retirement portfolio, savings, etc. The purpose of this account used to be to earn some additional funds for vacations, home repairs, large purchases, but now I see it more as a counterbalance to inflation.

Planning on taking it slow and watching the market - will start with roughly $3k and then will add $1k-$2k per month. Looking at the following breakdown:

VOO - 1/3 of portfolio (around $1k to start, so 3 shares)

2/3 of portfolio distributed among:

WM

MSFT

CVX

LMT

UNH

PGR

PEP

KR

AMD

Posted this elsewhere before but relevant here:

Poltlatchdeltic (PCH) is a small-cap equity REIT that holds a huge amount of timberland across the South and Midwest US. They also come with the added bonus of owning 6 sawmills that they operate. I hold a decent sized position.

Seagate (STX) is a Med-Cap (borderline large cap now) and is one of the world's largest producers of SSD and other data storage devices. It is a solid tech company with a great, well backed yield of 3.5%. They invented the first HHD too, btw.

Kroger (KR) is a well regarded Med-cap stock - you may be familiar with Payless, Ralphs, Dillons, Smith's, King Soopers Kroger and a few other names - these are all grocery stores owned by Kroger. Solid Consumer Staples stock with a growing dividend. (Albertsons owns Safeway, Von's and others)

Ryder (R) is a Med-cap and has a good dividend, has been ranked Outperform or whatever is synonymous by a number of analysts. I recently sold mine to take the profit, but it is still worth a look.

What I'm holding now isn't what I've always held. I have long term holds like Apple and Microsoft, and others I buy and sell.

This is off topic of the consolidation question, but I'm happy to answer questions. No, I first bought TSLA in this account, at $421 in 2020.

Here's just some of what I sold as part of rebalancing and consolidation in January 2022 for example, from my investing notes:

I've been consolidating my portfolio for a while, cutting out losers, putting money back into winners, and trying to clean it up. I'd like to reduce the number of securities even more and would love to hear your advice. Which of these would you sell and consolidate? There are some clear duplicates in markets and categories but I'm getting to a point where I'm not sure what my next step is. See more details after the list... I'm including a few percentages to give a general map of the distribution.
AAPL - 21% of portfolio
TSLA
MSFT
CRM
MU
NVDA
ACA - 2.52% of portfolio
APTV
VTI
BRK.B
ZBH
AMAT
PHO
BVNKF
TGT
FDX
ABB
DOX - 1.5% of portfolio
VWSYF
SONY
LITE
TSM
TWTR
STX
CARR - 1.32% of portfolio
CCI
SRVR
AMZN
EATV
VEGN
TXN
CSCO
META
GOOGL - 1.08% of portfolio
FIW
PL
TMUS
DLR
MCHP
NEE
PYPL
STAG - 0.69% of portfolio
VWAGY
KR
CWEN
BEP
GLW
SIGA
SJR
TNXP
ACI
ARKK - 0.45% of portfolio
KO
NCR
INTC
DRIV
RCI
ROIC
EBLU
AQN
ICLN
NOK
BATT - 0.15% of portfolio
More details:
This is in a Roth IRA I've had since 2005. I'd like to get down to 20 or fewer, or as close to that as I can. I do a rebalancing twice a year usually at the beginning and again in the early fall, but this process has been ongoing.

For example I had MRVL and MU for years and recently sold all the MRVL and put it in MU which has been a much stronger performer for me. I did the same with CTXS and CSCO. I don't want to just hold index funds, I do like having individual securities, growing positions in them and then selling a bit to make more (than usual) speculative investments after DRIP makes them outsized in my portfolio as I've done with Apple, Microsoft, and others. The especially speculative securities are pretty obvious (like PL, SIGA, BVNKF). Sometimes these are future tech, sometimes they're current even related. I usually don't hold them long unless they do great.

I like dividends, and I intentionally don't buy (or try to avoid as much as possible) anything related to fossil fuels, animal food production, military, jailing, police, or weapons of any kind.
My 3 year performance for the account from July 2019 to June 10, 2022 was 139% vs. the DJI at 15%, S&P at 31%, and NASDAQ at 39%. This account has always beat the markets by huge amounts since I started it. I buy and sell a bit to achieve this because it's in the IRA so I'm able to do that without having to worry about taxes.

I also posted this on the sub /stocks in a different form.

Sold all of mine earlier today, and WMT and TGT too. I sold everything cuz I didn't want to be exposed to markets this week. Held onto KR (which is getting smoked), but glad I dumped the other retailers.

It's called anchoring bias. People who bought the stocks only talk for them, and this leads other to buy them and become anchored as well.

I agree that S&P has 500 stocks but we never see posts about HPQ, HPE, KR, ED, NDAQ, CAG, DPZ, CPB, etc.

If no one owns them obviously no one will make any post about them, and we will end up discussing how undervalued is FB and PYPL

Immersion if possible. Conversation, and to a lesser extent media, both written and spoken.

YMMV but I enjoy language basics but find it hard to stay motivated and get, let alone, keep, fluency beyond restaurant menus and basic directions. You really don't use much more than that traveling, so unless you've got a community locally, or business connections, it's an uphill battle for little use. Unless you really put in the time, 90% of the people you encounter as a tourist in NL or KR will just respond in English for their own convenience - they likely have a lot more practice than you!

I’ll have $100 extra in my brokerage tomorrow and I’m itching to buy something. Top answer decides.

I’m currently looking at something like WBD or even PARA. Maybe some “consumer defensive” like KR or KO? Or just channel my inner Buffet with WM or BRK/B?

Unlike most of the people around this sub, who are still in the "phones need a physical keyboard" phase of 2009/2010 or the "why would I want people to be able to call me when I'm not at home" phase of the later 90s/early 2000s, you have the right idea.

100% is a bit extreme, but in 90% of the market (NA, EU, CH, JP and KR), car sales will be 80-90% EVs by 2030. The sales trends, demand for EVs (already around 50% globally according to latest polling) and the order times for EVs are demonstrating this very clearly.

Personally, I think lithium miners are too difficult to pick and the only logical option is Tesla. If EVs are indeed ~80 in 2030, Tesla could easily do over 10% of that. Assuming the car market recovers to pre-pandemic levels as EVs become available, that's ~10M sales per year.

Even if Tesla's ASPs come down a bit to ~50K as they have to introduce a cheaper model, and if margins stop increasing, they'd be doing roughly 10M * 50K * 0.19 = $104.5B in net income from cars alone by 2030. With a conservative PE of 20 (seeing as they'd be growing earnings roughly 45% annually throughout the decade), that's around $2B in market.

Realistically I think their margins will continue to increase with increased scale, ASPs will not decline, the PE will not be below 40 and they'll sell 20-25% of the EV market instead of 10%, so I think the upside is a lot bigger than just that 3x.

And then there's everything else they're doing that's just a bonus. If they do solve full autonomy, they'll instantly be the most valuable company on the planet.

Forgot to reply to /u/alphap26's comment, but it consists entirely of false data and assumptions based on reasoning by analogy.

The car market won't be 100% EV by 2030, but it certainly will be ~70% EV in the most important markets (US/CA, EU, CH, KR and JP). Here is the adoption of Norway compared to the adoption rate in other EU countries since hitting at least 2% market share. Norway is currently around 85% roughly 12 years after hitting that 2%. The other EU countries are seeing faster adoption rates, even if they started later. They should be at 85% in about 8-10 years or 3-7 years from now. China is adopting faster than the EU at the moment, US/KR/JP are slightly lagging behind, so say they'll be at 85% around 2030-2032.

> the ban on internal combustion happens in 2035 and that's only in Europe and USA, not the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Latin America.

This is irrelevant. Norway's ban was in 2025 and they hit 100% electrified vehicles today. As I showed above, EU will hit close to 100% EV adoption well before the ban as well. Governments deliberately put these bans at a point where they know the whole population will already have shifted, so it doesn't piss people off but it does make them seem like they have a great climate policy.

> Also, as I previously mentioned, their market share for EVs is only 14% and decreasing.

Actually, Tesla's market share of EVs was 21.6% in Q1. You're including hybrids which will be irrelevant in the long run. The market share has been dropping the last year because they had no new factories coming online, but that's going to change with Berlin and Texas scaling from 0 to 4M+ vehicles produced per year over the next 3-4 years.

So in short, I don't think it's unlikely Tesla will still have 20% EV market share in 2030, the EV market will be ~70% of all vehicle sales and vehicle sales will grow slightly over time and the market recovers and emerging markets start buying more cars, to about 100-120M sales per year.

That gives Tesla 0.2 * 0.7 * 100-120M = 14-17M sales a year. Not quite 20M but certainly close.

Two ways to do so. (Well, more, but two big ones)

  1. Equity. You bring on someone to cover those aspects KR the business in exchange for a share of equity.
  2. Cash. You pay someone (salaried or contractor) to do that work.

What sort of “investing” are you looking for

Also, don’t get down-heartened. There will always be days that feel like an absolute grind and heavy AF. The trick is to try to balance them out with the light, fun days of creation. If you are finding yourself resenting the project then that’s a good reason to find a partner/Co-founder (with equity) as then you can share the burden.

First cut your spending back where you can, next start building your savings and inrease your pay via raise kr certification or new job. After getting your income up a bit move towards savings at least 13-20% of your takehome into a growth investment acct. Part it out into varying levels of risk and work with your planner on how you want the money to try and grow over the years.

Looks like you've got 2 telecom and 2 real estate stocks. Due to the threat of a recession you might want to look into either consumer cyclicals or healthcare, both sectors do pretty well in downward market conditions.

Consumer cyclicals: $KR- kroger stores, a grocery chain. $KMB- Kimberly Clark, household paper products manufacturer, $PEP- Pepsi co, snack food and drink products manufacturer.

Healthcare: $JNJ- Johnson & Johnson- medical supplies manufacturer. $ABBV- medication and pharma company.

As I mentioned I recently bot 13 and 26 wk maturity T-bills. But I buy safety names (not ETFs) on weeks like this, so defense contractors like LMT (US gov is a good customer lol), staples like ADM, KR, HSY, PG, WMT, energy (bought BOIL yesterday, sold today lol), and lots of healthcare names like UNH, BMY, ABBV, MRK. Bought MRNA yesterday, sold today lol. I always buy BRK/B as a pairs trade with SPY when it's underperforming, but I have had A shares for many years, so it's a small trade.

Also bought some SMH for a quick trade, but will be out by tomorrow going into next week's earnings.

You buying anything?

All Western European countries and China are on track to 90% EVs in 2024-2027. The US, rest of Europe and JP/KR are probably around 5 years behind. It's only outside those countries (~20% of the market, and mostly low-end sales) where it will take a lot longer.

100% EVs is not gonna happen by 2030, but 70%+ is extremely likely.
