Today I am starting a new video series on how to build a growth stock portfolio from scratch. This series is focused on investing for beginners, but investors of all backgrounds will enjoy this content. The stock market can be challenging to navigate, but this diversified portfolio enables successful long-term growth investing.
In the video below, I explain this new series and my intentions. I also discuss how the portfolio allocations will work:
- 60% growth stocks
- 20% ETFs as a core
- 10% dividend stocks
- 10% speculative stocks
I will start with $5,000 and add $1,000 every month. The portfolio will include a core of ETFs such as Invesco Nasdaq 100 QQQ Trust (QQQ -1.44%), Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VOO -0.94%), and ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK -1.76%). Dividend stocks include examples such as Microsoft (MSFT -2.40%), Lam Research (LRCX -1.01%), and Apple (AAPL -2.00%). For the growth bucket, I will do my best to pick the top growth stocks for 2022 and beyond. I'll be building this growth stock portfolio with input from the community. This video series is for educational purposes, and you will choose your own stocks and ETFs based on your personal preference and conviction.
There will be future videos explaining what stocks I'm buying now, how dollar-cost averaging (DCA) works, and more. Please watch the below video for more information and don't forget to subscribe and click the bell to receive notifications, so you don't miss any future videos in the series.
