Evening all, hope this finds everyone well! Now that my super thread title has dragged you all here I'd like to generate some discussion in regards to DIRECT or individual share holdings and strategies for LONG term wealth creation/passive income. I know this will be unpopular with many as it seems LICs and ETFs are the ducks n*ts on this forum, however I'd love some discussion on stocks you would pick to buy and NEVER intend on selling and feel free to also post a strategy you intend to adopt or have pondered. LICs and ETFs can be included as part of a portfolio but please remember this is a discussion on individual stocks. In another thread a wise person made reference along the lines of how after many years of investing A key takeaway was to follow a strategy that suits you, be it right. Or wrong in another's eyes as its most important to the conviction of ones investment journey. I of late have been purchasing a basket of stocks in $1k lots, yes brokerage has been and is higher than if you were to buy in larger lots however I've found that I have been enjoying my share purchasing/accumulating of late. The part that helps me sleep is that even doing it this way and paying quite a lot of brokerage ($10k per $1mil) it's still a pee in the ocean in comparison to entry costs associated with property. Post away, again play the ball not the man if you don't like or agree with someone's strategy or opinion. Look forward the the discussion.
