    So is this portfolio an IRA? Or just a personal account that you are paying taxes on every year?

    worst advice ever to play on margin in a stock market like this. you forgot to add that you will be paying taxes on those dividends at least 15% so you are really taking a whole lot of risk not to make 1.2% but more like 0.2% or less. Let alone the risk you put yourself for a margin call. a drop of 20% in your portfolio will put you in trouble

    This is what happened just before the great depression, people borrowing money to put in the stock market….and losing everything! 🙄

    “It doesn’t calculate in the capital gains potential.” What about taxes and in the reverse, losses?

    Maybe use margin minimally. Never max out margin to buy stocks.

    A balanced portfolio ETF give 4% a year with a lot less research and work. Plus the distribution are each month. Don't know why you give yourself such headache. Ok I know the potential capital gains in the long run are not as good as your portfolio but it's not the goal of a dividend portfolio..

    I was thinking the same thing, I didn't know if the dividends will go to the loan or reinvest in the stocks

    Not going to lie, that was pretty stupid to borrow money to invest. I hope it works out for you, but extremely stupid.

    A pro of holding dividend-paying shares which YTers don't discuss is the up-side for value appreciation as well. Also, be careful to yield chase and look for quality instead 💪🧐

    Do not borrow money on stocks!

    Sorry but you're doing all the wrong things xD
    1) borrowing to buy stocks
    2) having airlines stocks recently
    3) dividends stocks that only give you 2.5% ?? You could get 5-6% easily.

    Not overlay keen on borrowing money to buy stocks. Once you factor in inflation you are creating a challenge for yourself.

    I've bene using M1 for 8 months now based on your recommendation. I like the automated money put into the market, and making my own indexes (pies). However, only have one trading window isn't good enough. I understand you can pay for the afternoon, but that should be free. I'm going to end up moving my accounts out and into another platform. Nice product, but isn't polished enough for me

    Hi Ryan, or anyone who knows and reading this comment, can you please answer my all important question.

    If I have a sell spread, say for example for SPY and I have a Sell Put at $315 and Buy Put at $314. The expiration date is July 22nd. Will my spread gets exercised and I lose the collateral, I put upfront, if during the time of my spread creation and expiration date price drops below $315? What if the price on expiration goes up again over $315? Will it get exercised as soon as price drops below $315, or just the price at date of expiration is important?

    I know if I am selling a put I will have to buy the 100 stocks, but selling spread and having to get it exercised before expiry date is what I am curious about. Thank in advance!

    Just have to be aware of Corona Virus, were in a recession and the risk is actually higher right now. There highly can be another stock market crash tbh. If your not desperate I personally will wait until this thing is over. I love this option though

    Interesting… I wouldn't borrow to invest in that way, but interesting none the less

    What happens if the value of the stock goes down? It doesn't seem like 1.5% dividend return seems worth it if the value of the stock drops 5-10%.
