In this series, I will be building a $100,000 dividend stock portfolio from scratch investing with M1 Finance. Each week, I will be contributing money to this account. Then, each month I will be providing you with an update video.

I’ve chosen to invest with M1 Finance for a number of reasons. I have a free video training that shows you exactly how to get started investing with them.

    When you say FREE training does that mean free if you are not yet a member of M1 Finance.. Since I have tried to sign up several times and still have not heard from you as I could not go thru the M1 signup to pay you with the affiliate fee… So is this Free course available to only those who pay you or can any of you dedicated followers access this FREE stuff….

    i kind of feel like the series starts to defeat its purpose as it was supposed to be $500/week investment, and down to ep.5 we are looking at $5000 – 10000 investment once in a month. Although its all personal decision but as a new learner it feels just like watching rich guy throwing more money just because they can.

    I started watching your you tube videos over 2 years ago but wondering why old videos where you use the pen & paper to discuss topics for beginner on how to invest. I really appreciate those and wish you can bring them back. It helps a lot

    #OldManPaxus Rating: ★★★ ½ Newcomer here, can someone tell me how he started this (what he started with in $$) and when?
    I only work part time (because of health) and have no desposable income.. Is there such a thing as a way to make small investments? I see smartphone app ads like Acorns and wonder if they are useful or even legit… I can't imagine giving over my login:password to a broker app….
    Surely there is some way to make small shares/stock/trades etc?… like $50 here or there?

    Including a legacy GE position in a dividend portfolio is a valuable learning tool. However, it signals a bad habit of holding bad stocks due to your sunk costs. You are tying up capital in GE that could grow faster in your other picks like AAPL or IBM on fundamental grounds. Accept your mistake and move on. I know I am happier getting rid of duds and redeploying the cash into more promising stocks.

    One question i have! Say a stock was worth 50$ before a crash and it went down to 20$. Then the markets decide to go back up again. Does it jump back up to 50$ bucks right away or does it take some time to gain up again. Always wondering this. If there’s anyone thats going to end up a millionaire i can see you becoming one in no time. Great video as always.

    Good video Ryan,in my opinion they have over blown this virus thing and while all this is going on they lowered rates causing a big panic,lots of negative news I think the market is still strong.thanks Ryan

    Building out my own dividend growth portfolio myself. Dollar cost averaging is the way to go. Don't panic and stay the course it will pay off.

    I mean no hate I'm just simply quite confused brother. Is it a dividend portfolio or a short term (less than a year) trading portfolio? You say it is a dividend portfolio but your reasoning for airline trades has no basis to dividend investing.

  42. Vad
    July 19, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Buying airlines stock is insane, there is still no end in sight and they are not priced in there is more room to go down
