Stocks, Indexes & ETFs - What's The Difference?

http://optionalpha.com - There are subtle but importance differences between trading these 3 different types of underlyings. In this quick and short video I'll explain the benefits/drawbacks of each style.

Reasons To Avoid Index Funds (ETFs)
 
09:13
I generally assume that most of you watching these videos are already fully on board with the idea that index investing makes sense, while stock picking and actively managed funds should be avoided like the plague. Most Canadians are, apparently, not on board with that idea. As of the end of 2018, only 11.5% of Canadian investment fund assets, that is mutual fund and ETF assets domiciled in Canada, were invested in index funds.

The Next Stock Market Crash? | Passive Investing & Index ETFs Explained
 
05:52
Is passive investing safe? Will index ETFs save you in the next market crash? Or will both of these things cause the next crash? That’s what we’ll be talking about in this video. ***This video is sponsored by Real Vision*** One investment style has dominated the financial landscape for the bull market of the 2010’s. Like it or not passive investing, in the form of buy and hold index funds , (mostly ETFs) has ballooned in terms of attracting capital. But does all this passive “dumb money” add extra risk? Has the zombie apocalypse already begun in the form of blind passive investing! This is a crucial topic philosophically to many of us because frankly if you’re here you’re more likely to be active and you probably on some level reject the Efficient market Hypothesis. But cheap money as we looked at in our bubble series has been a nice environment for buying… well anything at any time. It’s made bull market geniuses of many, and humiliated some big named Hedge Fund managers like Bill Ackman who runs Pershing Square. Bill Ackman see's a risk in such a concentration of stock ownership by passive investors in terms of how stock ownership has been a means of checks and balances on corporate America. As an activist the last thing he wants is equity owners that have no interest in holding corporate boards accountable. A 2016 study by S&P Dow Jones Indices showed that about 90 percent of active stock managers failed to beat their index targets over the previous one-year, five-year and 10-year periods; fees explain a significant part of that underperformance. In their defense, active managers say that the period since the financial crisis of 2008 has been an abnormal one, with many stocks moving in lockstep, rather than trading on their individual earning prospects.

Index Mutual Funds vs ETFs

In many past videos (which I have linked below) I have discussed the uses of Index Mutual Funds and ETFs in your portfolio. But what is the difference between these two investments?

Why I AVOID Index Funds & ETFs (Dividend Investing With Individual Stocks)
 
10:48
I personally avoid index funds and ETFs (exchange traded funds). As a dividend growth investor with the goal of driving passive income (via dividend checks), these investment vehicles do not meet my needs. Today's video compares and contrasts individual dividend stocks with index funds (and ETFs). I discuss the pros and cons of each. In particular, I cover the following: * What are your investment goals? Mine involve massive amounts of cash flow that cover my living expenses so I can visit beautiful places like Hawaii more often. * Do you want to average? That's what will happen with an index fund (by definition). I don't want to be average and that's why I personally invest in individual stocks. * Individual stocks offer control, stability, the opportunity for superior results, more risk (although mitigated somewhat via diversification), lower fees, and a bit more work. * Exchange traded funds and index funds offer less control, the ability to track an index, less risk, higher fees, and less work. * Learn where index funds and ETFs may make sense. Especially retirement accounts that only offer actively managed mutual funds as the alternative. And, charities where there is a fiduciary responsibility. * Learn why I don't like index funds. I just can't see them working for anyone who wants to make a living off of dividends. * Also, I cover three key points: (1) Individual stocks allow one to optimize for dividends. (2) Individual stocks allow one to buy value (buy what's "on sale"). (3) Index funds include lower quality stocks, and lift such stocks to unfair valuations.

Follow Warren Buffett: Buying the S&P500 Index (SPY vs VOO vs Vanguard)

http://www.lifestyletrading101.com The famous and most successful investor of all-time Warren Buffett recommends buying a low-cost index fund spread out over time (dollar-cost averaging). Specifically, he recommends the Vanguard S&P500 Index Fund. Of course, there are multiple ways you can take on Buffett’s recommendation to invest in the index fund and we’ll talk about the most popular ones here with a look at pros and cons of each. Holders of these index funds are typically eligible for dividends when you hold into the Ex-Div Date.

Dividend Stocks Vs. Dividend ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds)
 
15:33
You like dividend checks. However, you are unsure whether you should pursue individual dividend-paying stocks or dividend-focused ETFs (exchange traded funds). Today's video, a response to a subscriber question, compares and contrasts individual dividend growth stocks versus dividend mutual funds (ETFs), through my personal lens. While I cannot answer this question for others, I can share my personal pros and cons when I compare the two, and how I decided to proceed in my personal stock portfolio. Specifically, I cover: * Two specific ETF (exchange traded fund) examples from a major ETF mutual fund family. * Why starting yields may be a bit too low with ETFs. * Why I love the control that individual, dividend stocks offer. (And, their lack of ongoing fees is nice too.) * How one can derive more value (when stocks are "on sale") via individual stocks versus mutual funds (which offer a basket of stocks). This is a critical point. The stock market, in my opinion, is not efficient. By holding individual dividend stocks, I get to buy bargains all the time. * When ETFs and mutual funds may make sense (namely retirement accounts where individual stocks are not an option, or those that have smaller portfolios without the prospect of large-scale growth). * How I hope and dream that everyone watching has a million dollar (or more) dividend stock portfolio, one that pays massive cash flow. Today's video is a bit contrarian, and that's ok. My goal is one of early financial freedom and massive passive income. Since my goals are a bit unconventional, my personal finance strategy has been a bit unconventional too.

Are ETFs index funds?
 
03:37
Most ETFs try to match an index—like the S&P 500—but not all. So when you hear someone compare index ETFs with traditional actively managed funds, it's important to know the differences. Learn more about how each type of fund responds to market risk, when manager risk becomes a factor, and how management differences can affect your overall costs—including your taxes. When you're ready to choose ETFs to invest in, consider Vanguard ETFs®, which are always commission-free when you buy them through a Vanguard Brokerage Account. Visit https://vgi.vg/2JEk9H3 for details. **You must buy and sell Vanguard ETF Shares through Vanguard Brokerage Services (we offer them commission-free) or through another broker (which may charge commissions). See the Vanguard Brokerage Services commission and fee schedules at https://vgi.vg/2Krv6gj for limits. Vanguard ETF Shares are not redeemable directly with the issuing fund other than in very large aggregations worth millions of dollars. ETFs are subject to market volatility. When buying or selling an ETF, you will pay or receive the current market price, which may be more or less than net asset value.** **Visit https://vgi.vg/2KrBkwY to obtain prospectuses—or, if available, summary prospectuses—for Vanguard ETFs and mutual funds. The prospectus contains investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other information; read and consider carefully before investing.** All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. The performance of an index is not an exact representation of any particular investment, as you cannot invest directly in an index. © 2018 The Vanguard Group, Inc. All rights reserved.

ETFs vs. Index Funds: Investing 101 w/ Doug Flynn, CFP
 
05:34
Doug Flynn, CFP, of Flynn Zito Capital Management, LLC on ETFs vs. Index Funds. Ali: Explain the difference between an ETF and a mutual fund... Doug: Well an ETF is a mutual fund that you know and love, but it trades on the exchange, so you can buy throughout the day. Versus a traditional fund which trades once a day at the end of the day. Ali: Okay, so let's talk about index funds, which really came first. First you had stocks, then you had index funds. Doug: Yes, an index fund is just trying to replicate a particular index, which you can't invest in directly, but this is a way to replicate that. So if you like the stocks in the S&P 500, or the stocks in the Dow... Ali: It used to be that you could just read about the stocks in the Dow or the S&P 500, and buy the individual stocks. If you wanted to, you could buy all thirty in the Dow... Doug: That's right. Ali: But then, we came up with index funds, which said, "You can do the Dow, you can do the S&P 500, you can do the Nasdaq, you can do...I don't know...Easter European industries. Doug: Exactly, and that is going to track an index, there isn't a lot of trading or active management in there. You can do that in a traditional mutual fund format or in an ETF, which is the exchange traded version of that, which just means it trades throughout the day. Ali: Generally speaking, index brought the management fees, these fees associated with mutual funds, down, because there's not somebody doing a lot of active work, and ETFs brought them down further. Doug: Correct. Ali: So why would I choose one vs. the other? Doug: So if you buy an ETF, you're typically placing a trade like a stock. So, if you're with an online broker, they're typically going to charge you some type of a trading fee to do that, whereas a mutual fund may have a minimum, but won't necessarily have a transaction charge to do that. There are some cases where that isn't the case. Ali: If you're doing this for fees, you better look at this and understand that you're paying for trades. Doug: Yeah. Most people are putting money away each month. You know, one hundred dollars per month is what they're doing. You can't really do that with an ETF because you're making a transaction every single time. That's where a mutual fund might be better. Ali: So you're putting one hundred bucks a month away, but you're paying ten dollars for the transaction, you gotta weigh that in. Doug: Maybe you use the index fund for a little while, and then you have $10,000, and then you can actually do those transactions. So that's where you might want it in different ways. And that's where it's cheaper. Like anything else, the more money you have, it might be a little bit cheaper. Ali: One thing you warn is not all ETFs are created equal. What do you mean by that? Doug: Well as an example, the two major providers, there's Vanguard, there's i Shares, which are two different providers of ETFs. And you have to look at the structure. And the structure of i shares in particular, they're completely separate, which means their tax ramifications are very low. They don't necessarily pay capital gains to speak of because they're just trading in and out of the ETF structure by itself: it's a stand-alone ETF. Vanguard did what is kind of a bolt-on to its existing mutual funds. What's happened there, is some cases, when the fund pays a capital gains distribution... Ali: Because they sold a stock at a profit... Doug: Right, a large institution wants to sell a bunch of their funds, it transfers into the ETF itself. So all ETFs are not created equal, and you should look at, if I want bond index ETFs, look a little bit deeper and look where are there capital gains distributions. Many people know there are these issues in traditional mutual funds that are actively managed. And they don't scroll down and see if there are differences between the different ETF providers. Ali: And of course that makes a difference depending on how you're investing. Whether this is inside a tax-preferred investment, or it's just out in the open. Doug: If it's an IRA it doesn't really matter, but if it's in a taxable accound, the last thing you want is further tax surprises you thought you were avoiding by being in ETF format. Ali: This is a business for people who feel they're not going to outperform the market with their own selections. Doug: Exactly, you've said in a particular area I don't think I can bring value, I can't find a manager who will bring value in a particular are, I'm just going to index then. And as a portfolio manager and as people who manage money, there are times when we find that you can't bring value with managers, and that they're out of favor, and you might index more. But we're agnostic.

When to Buy Etfs OVER Stocks (6 Times When Investing In Etfs Is Better Than Picking Stocks)
 
09:45
When To Purchase Etfs vs Stocks. When to Buy ETFS vs Stocks (6 Times When Investing In Etfs Is Better Than Picking Stocks) By the end of this video you will have much better idea of when invest in etfs (Exchange traded funds) versus selecting individual stocks. Let’s begin 1. When the sector has a narrow dispersion of returns. Sectors that have a narrow dispersion of returns from the mean do not offer stock pickers an advantage when trying to generate market-beating returns. For example lets assume there are 100 companies in the utility sector and most of them provide an annual rate of return of 4%, because the performance of all companies in these sectors tends to be similar. This is usually true for consumer staple investments as well. Its kind of like trying to choose which McDonalds to go to. No matter which one you choose the hamburger is basically going to taste the same. Since the dispersion of returns from these kind of investments tends to be narrow or similar; picking individual stock does not offer sufficiently higher return for the risk so purchasing a utility etf or index fund might make the most sense in this example. . 2. When you want to invest in a particular market sector or industry, but you have limited knowledge of that sector or industry For example, if you believe that now is a good time to invest in the mining sector, you may want to gain specific industry exposure. However, you are concerned that some stocks might encounter political problems harming their production. In this case, it is prudent to buy into the sector rather than a specific stock, since it reduces your risk. You can still benefit from growth in the overall sector, especially if it outperforms the overall market. 3. When the performance drivers of a company are difficult to understand. These companies may possess complicated technology or processes that cause them to underperform or do well. Perhaps performance depends on the successful development and sale of a new unproven technology. You find it difficult to understand the company or industry. Chipper told me a pharmaceutical company was going to do well, but I don’t understand how they operate, and there are so many of them to choose from. Which one do I pick? Unlike in the first example where the dispersion of investment returns were narrow, the desperation of returns in this case are wide so may even more challenging to pick the winning stocks in the industry. The biotechnology industry is a good example, as many of these companies depend on the successful development and sale of a new drug. If the development of the new drug does not meet expectations in the series of trials, or the FDA does not approve the drug application, the company faces a bleak future. On the other hand, if the FDA approves the drug, investors in the company can be highly rewarded. 4. When you want instant diversification ETFs provide instant diversification relative to individual stocks. It would be challenging to have a properly diversified portfolio with 10 individual stocks, but relatively simple with the same number of ETFs. (To learn more, see 10 Ways ETFs Can Grow Your Portfolio.) 5. Invest In Hard-to-access Markets Owning gold is a pain for most individual investors; owning SPDR Gold Shares (NYSE:GLD) (which owns gold bullion) is simple. Not only does this ETF bypass the bid-ask spreads of retail gold and the expense of rolling over futures contracts, but it has no storage or security requirements. Likewise, investors can access commodities like copper, precious metals, timberland and so on through the convenient forms of ETFs. (For more, check out Commodities: The Portfolio Hedge.) 6. Less time consuming way to invest The iShares US Medical Devices ETF (NYSE:IHI) contains 40 different stocks. It would take weeks for an individual investor to do proper due diligence on each of those names, and that is one of the advantages of ETF investing. Why should I spend all my time trying to sit here and pick individual stocks? I need to get my sorceress in Diablo 2 to level 99! Because the impact and importance of any one stock is relatively small, investors can spend their time thinking about which sectors and markets are poised to perform and make investment choices without being bogged down by an overwhelming amount of initial and ongoing due diligence.

ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) | by Wall Street Survivor
 
01:48
What is an ETF? Learn more at: https://www.wallstreetsurvivor.com/register Like a mutual fund, an ETF represents a mix of underlying securities. Unlike a mutual fund, an ETF is traded on the stock market, meaning investors can purchase shares of an ETF to buy and sell at will throughout the day. The most popular ETFs are index ETFs, which track a market index, sector, or commodity (like gold). The value of an ETF increases or decreases in tandem with the index or security selection it tracks. ETFs enable the diversification of mutual funds but cost less to own, and are becoming increasingly popular. To reduce your risk, you should invest in more than just one stock. But it can be time consuming to research many stocks to invest in. ETFs can solve this problem for you. An ETF is a basket of tens, hundreds and sometimes thousands of companies, bonds and commodities in one fund unified under one particular investment theme. Maybe you think Tech is booming, but you don’t want to invest in just one company. Or, maybe you would like to have exposure to some foreign investments. There is an ETF for virtually any segment of the market.

5 Mistakes Investors Make with ETFs | Fidelity
 
04:43
In this video, learn about the five biggest mistakes that investors make when buying ETFs, or exchange-traded funds. To learn the basics about ETFs, visit https://www.fidelity.com/learning-center/investment-products/etf/overview. To get started investing with ETFs, visit https://www.fidelity.com/etfs/overview To see more videos from Fidelity Investments, subscribe to: https://www.youtube.com/fidelityinvestments Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fidelityinvestments Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/fidelity Google+: https://plus.google.com/+fidelity LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/fidelity-investments --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Let’s talk about the five biggest mistakes investors can make when buying exchange-traded funds. ETFs can be good tools for investors - when used appropriately. But with any investment, there are always things to watch out for. Number 1: Buying the Hot New Thing More than 100 new ETF products launch each year, many of them chasing the latest hot trend. Cloud computing, driverless cars, 3-D printing … you name it, there’s an ETF for that. Buying into the latest hot theme might make you big returns, but take care: These product launches may come after there has been a run up in the market. Buying at the top can be painful on the way down. Number 2: Buying Something You Don’t Understand The only thing worse than chasing the hottest trend is buying something you don’t understand. ETFs have taken institutional strategies and made them push-button-easy for everyday investors to access. Want access to commodity futures? There’s an ETF for that. 300% leverage? 200% short? Interest-rate carry plays? Yes to all. But just because you can buy something easily doesn’t mean you should. All of these funds may be good tools, but only if you know how to use them correctly. Number 3: Thinking All ETFs Are Created Equal Consider China. At the start of 2014, there were more than a dozen broad-based China ETFs. For example, had you chosen PGJ, the PowerShares Golden Dragon China ETF, at the start of the year, you would have lost more than 7% of your money. Had you instead chosen ASHR, the Deutsche Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF, you would have earned a 51% return. Both are “China ETFs.” Both can provide big, diversified portfolios. But ASHR has significant exposure to Chinese Ashares—largely consumer-focused stocks listed and traded on the domestic Chinese market— which performed spectacularly well in 2014. Don’t assume all ETFs are created equal. Just because two ETFs cover the same market doesn’t mean they provide the same exposure or returns. There’s no guarantee which fund will perform better in the future. But if you wanted to invest last year in the growth of the Chinese consumer and the domestic investor base there, a little bit of research would have gone a long way. Number 4: Trading…Just Because You Can Trading is central to ETFs. It’s right there in the name. But just because you can trade an ETF intraday doesn’t mean you should. Emotions are often an investor’s worst enemy. You zig when you should zag; you sell at the bottom and buy at the top. We all do sometimes. The trouble is ETFs make that even easier than traditional mutual funds. ETFs’ intraday liquidity can be great when you need to get into or out of the market quickly. But those situations are rare. Number 5: Only Using Market Orders When you do invest, consider using a limit order versus a market order. Market orders are instructions to buy or sell securities at the best possible price right now. That can work well for the most liquid ETFs, but as you move beyond the top dozen ETFs, you can find yourself getting trades executed at prices you don’t really want. Using a limit order means you agree to buy an ETF at a certain price or below, and sell it at a certain price or above. A limit order puts the control back in your hands and can help you set the price on your terms. Learn from these common mistakes to help avoid making them yourself.

Listen to this interview and how to go about investing in China. Now, the interviewer constantly pushes the idea of buying the S&P 500 index because we don’t know China, China is risky but Munger straightforwardly says that everybody can find 4 or 5 good companies to invest in China. GOOD COMPANIES – index funds don’t offer that – they offer the average If you have 5 good companies in china, 5 in the us and another 5 in the world you will have a great return and be globally diversified, that is what all of those who don’t want to bother have to do, just buy good companies and forget about it, not index funds.

Index funds vs mutual funds vs ETFs
 
28:23
For investors without the time to invest in individual stocks (or, for that matter, who just want automatic diversification), stock funds which bundle a bunch of different companies together make a ton of sense. The question, of course, is: Which one should you buy? We break down the benefits and drawbacks of mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (or ETFs), and index funds to help you answer that question. Three key metrics to look at are turnover, expense ratio, and five-year performance – we explain those in greater depth in the video, but they should help you quickly whittle down the number of funds. That lets you focus on more qualitative factors, like whether you like the fund manager’s philosophy and what mix of stocks you want to own.

BEST ETFs FOR 2019

🔥Join my PRIVATE stock market membership group! 50% OFF ENDS SOON - http://bit.ly/TheInformedInvestor1 🔥 These are the best ETFs for 2019! I chose these 3 ETFs as the best ETFs for 2019 because they have produced long term excellent returns with low volatility. ETFs are a great way to get exposed to many stocks with one security, and they are usually less volatile than picking single stocks. ETFs are the way to go for investors who want to "set it and forget it". _____ Sign up for my FREE weekly stock picks! 😍 💌 http://bit.ly/WeeklyStockPicks _____ FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM 📷 😀 @whiteboardfinance _____ Best Investing Apps 📊💸 M1 FINANCE: Invest in partial shares of your favorite stocks 📈 http://bit.ly/M1FinanceApp QAPITAL: Automate your savings without trying 📌 http://bit.ly/QapitalApp COINBASE: Get $10 in free Bitcoin (when you fund $100) ⭐ http://bit.ly/CoinBaseCrypto1 _____ Premium Courses I’ve Created 👨🏻‍🔬 MJ Stock Investing Course (With Ryan Scribner) 🌲 http://bit.ly/MJStockCourse _____ Must Read Books! 📚🧠 The Best Assets vs. Liabilities Book 📘http://amzn.to/2DEWioH How to Get Rich Slowly 📗http://amzn.to/2D41y46 The Best Mindset & Self Development Book 📗http://amzn.to/2BUMPJa The Best Story on Personal Finance 📕 https://amzn.to/2KJKgRn No time to read?

Sven Carlin Research Platform: https://sven-carlin-research-platform.teachable.com/p/stock-market-research-platform Modern Value Investing book: KINDLE: https://amzn.to/2r184En PAPERBACK: https://amzn.to/2Kd55kN Sven Carlin blog: https://svencarlin.com/blog/ Article: https://svencarlin.com/2018/06/21/5-problems-with-index-funds-take-responsibility-for-your-financial-life/ It is time for me to really stand up to this crazy index investing and ETF investing mania where most people transfer the responsibility for their financial life to somebody else – in this case the market. A few decades ago, we used to call such behaviour communist. There are a few very dangerous things developing: 1) Not thinking when investing in the stock market is not good because you fail to learn and develop – miss on so many other investing opportunities! 2) By not taking responsibility for your own financial wellbeing – you’ll get the average! 3) Financial atrophy! 4) What has worked in the past 3 decades will not work in the next 3! 5) It is extremely possible to beat the market – especially this market (S&P 500) – and it is even easier to reach amazing investing returns overall in a life!
My top 10 Dividend ETFs yielding 2% or more [Passive Income investing]
 
09:45
I have taken a look at all the top dividend ETFs and picked out the 10 best ones! This list is based on dividend payout, expense ratio, exposure, payout rate and commission-free platforms. List includes VYM, SCHD, HDV, DVY, VEA, VWO, QQQC, TDIV, IPAC and VGK. I have picked different kinds of ETFs, so not just broad US ones. A dividend is great and so are ETFs, so this is a strong combination. Investing for all is a project seeking to provide basic information about how and where to invest in stock market. The stock market is a safe place to put your money and has given great returns over hundreds of years.

Dividend investing: (Are Individual Stocks Best For Dividends?)🥊 Stocks Versus Etfs For Dividends!

Dividend investing: (Are Individual Stocks Best For Dividends?)🥊 Find out as we take Stocks Versus Etfs For Dividends! Our complete investing library can be found here: Stock Market Investing: https://goo.gl/hi2kK4 Dividend Investing Playlist: https://goo.gl/njSrk2 Reason #1 Payout Predictability -One of the nice things about investing in dividend paying stocks is you will know exactly when your dividend payment will be received. -Its easier to estimate how much your dividend payment will be. -Also, you can more easily the gauge the financial health of the individual company. All of the factors above makes budgeting a little easier especially if you are retired or are consider retiring soon. I think you will have a safer and more predictable income by building your own portfolio that primarily consist of individual stocks. With dividend paying etfs this can be more challenging to predict dividend payouts because the etfs are typically made up 50 or 100 or more stocks. Some of companies the etfs hold can be low quality companies who may cut their dividend payouts and you might see a drop in dividend income. The idea of picking individual stocks takes a bit more of a time investment, but I find it is worth it if you don’t mind the extra time commitment. These days I only need to spend about 1 - 4 hours per month to know what I want to invest in so the time commitment isn’t too big. Reason #2 Stocks are easier to analyze Personally I feel stocks are easier to analyze than etfs because you can look at the financials of each company one at a time. There are ways to analyze etfs, but I feel from experience that I can do a much deeper company analysis with individual stocks. Reason #3 Fee Fi Fo FUm (Investment fees) One of the things I love about investing in individual stocks is that I only have to buy them one time and I incur no further commissions. Etfs are low cost, but if you grow your account to 1,000,000 for example that .001 or .003 can cost you $1,000 to $3,000 per year in fees. Compare that to platform that charges no commissions or even just $6.95 on stock purchases. Even if I invest in 4 times per month. 12 times per year i’m only paying $333.66 regardless if my account is worth millions or not. I invest less frequently than that so my annual commissions are typically $200 or less per year. Remember once you buy the stock and hold onto it you never have to pay another fee unless you sell it. Reason #4 Customization We all like things customized. Like customizing our character in Red Dead redemption 2. Why shouldn’t we customize our portfolio as well. When investing for dividends by purchasing stocks you are able to customize your portfolio the way you like. -You can purchase companies that pay dividends monthly, quarterly, annually etc . - You can Diversify by industry, and have more control how diversified your portfolio actually. - you can customize your yield Once again it takes more work and research to purchase individual stocks, however, I think you will get better customization for your dividend portfolio than by investing in etfs. Reason #5. Higher yields Speaking of yields I generally find yields paid by many etfs are too low for most people’s retirement needs. In my opinion its going to take too much capital to have a safe income in retirement if your etfs are only yielding around 2%. Realistically most Americans would be unable to put away that much money away. At that yield rate you would need about 2.5 million dividend paying assets to achieve an annual income around $50,000. Obviously these are just rough numbers, but let's be honest most people are just not going to have that sort of income to invest that much money for retirement unless they have been putting away money most of their lives. Just so you guys know successful companies generally raise their payouts overtime any from 2 - 7% per year on average. These payout increases will help to fuel your retirement income as well. However, if you are one of those who can’t stand the idea of research stocks and learning about investing than I think etfs are still a good alternative. The etfs should still help propel you retirement account in the right direction when it comes to investing for dividends.

How To Become A Millionaire: Index Fund Investing For Beginners
 
15:51
Index Fund Investing for beginners: This is one of the best investments that requires very little work, almost no skill, and has some of the best overall returns. Here’s why - enjoy! Add me on Instagram: GPStephan The YouTube Creator Academy: Learn EXACTLY how to get your first 1000 subscribers on YouTube, rank videos on the front page of searches, grow your following, and turn that into another income source: https://bit.ly/2STxofv $100 OFF WITH CODE 100OFF (Limited Time Only) Merch: http://www.GrahamStephanStore.com/ What IS an index fund? An index fund is basically just a group of investments that you can invest your money into, and then you’ll own a small percentage of the entire thing. Index funds track the entire market as a whole, rather than one specific stock. Why Invest in an Index Fund: They have very low fees. This is because indexes are very simple to put together, very simple to manage, there isn’t much overhead, and those savings get passed on to you. This is also what’s known as a PASSIVELY managed fund. You’re getting an entire portfolio of stocks that automatically gets balanced and adjusted over time, without doing any work, and you pay as low as 0.04% annually. This is the opposite of a MUTUAL FUND, which employs professional stock pickers who aim to generate market-beating performance. However, the additional overhead expense associated with this, as well as the fees incurred by buying and selling, ultimately gets passed on to you, as the investor, in the form of higher fees. And that is WITHOUT the guarantee of actually beating the market. Second Advantange: The majority of investors will get a HIGHER return long term with an index fund than they will by investing in individual stocks on their own. Several studies have suggested that over 92%-95% of portfolio managers could not out perform the market index over a 15-year period. And these figures are SO MUCH WORSE for the average individual investors. Third Advantage: Diversification. Even if you have 20 individual stocks in your portfolio, one of them dropping in price could cost you a lot of money. On the other hand, if you buy the SP500 500 index fund, your investment will depend on 500 different stocks, only three of which account for more than 2% of the entire index. This means having a few companies go down or up won’t make a huge difference in your portfolio, but you get the advantage of riding the entire market as a whole as they rise in value over time. Fourth Advantage: It’s easy. I also acknowledge that I am not a stock market expert. I cannot buy and sell stocks that will consistently beat the market long term, nor do I have an interest in spending that much time watching stock charts and reading news so I can make the proper decisions. Source: https://mymoneywizard.com/3-fund-portfolio/ How to do this: My favorite index fund investing method is called THE THREE FUND PORTFOLIO: * US Stocks: Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund (VTSAX) * International Stocks: Vanguard Total International Index Fund (VTIAX) * Bonds: Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund (VBTLX) That’s it. This gives you the broadest diversification at the absolute cheapest cost. Not only that, but because you’re investing in multiple asset classes, you’re diversified through three mostly uncorrelated markets, and that protects you against any swings from one individual market.
