I'm Building A $100,000 Stock Portfolio From SCRATCH (Ep. 1)


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.

    The best way to find growth stocks, key features to keep in mind is as follows:

    1. Ensure gross margins are greater than 50%

    2. Ensure P/E ratio is less than 100

    3. Buy companies that are PROFITABLE, very important irrespective of sector.

    4. Debt to equity ratio is less than 30%

    5. Current ratio is above 1 6. and a Float under 100 million One stock that fits the bill is FLGT (Fulgent)

    Wow. Your timing on almost all of these was AMAZING. Great time to get back into the stock market considering the rebound from the crash in March 2020 to March of 2021. Between that, your bitcoin investments, and your property, you probably are reaaaally happy with how 2020 went financially speaking. I haven't watched the rest of your series yet though 🙂

    You know this sort of videos is really unhelpful to those who doesn’t live in the US. A lot of us can’t start investing because we don’t have a US id/phone number/address. It’s hard trying to start a debt free life when these sort of videos is ONLY targeted to those living in the US

    Ah, the beginning of 2020, before the market crash. I started investing in January of 2020 and it was a rollercoaster ride of emotions for most of the year.

    “Completely debt free”. Not so if you have a mortgage. A mortgage is debt.
