My Freetrade Portfolio Update - LTI - Latest Video. Is my portfolio diversified or are all my eggs in one basket? [Subscribe to the YouTube Channel]

Hello Everyone

I recently set up a YouTube Channel to share my Freetrade Dividend Investing Journey. I try to look for bargain stocks which provide a steady dividend income long term.

However, since the crash I’ve had to re-evaluate how I invest. I’ve set this out in my new portfolio update video, it’s called "Should you invest like Warren Buffet or like Cathie Wood?

Nice to see you have started to invest more like Cathie Wood, in disruptive tech. But why Xilinx out of all the semiconductor firms?

Hi Gary, that’s a really good question. To be honest there are so many of them out there to pick from but I like Xilinx because it has a very strong balance sheet and I think it’s done well with some of its products. For example, it’s Versal line of products is arguably superior to the standard FPGA’s being made by other semi-conductor companies out there. Ultimately it’s all a matter of preference. In all truthfulness, the 5G effect is likely to benefit all companies in that space - remember, rising tide raises all boats!

Do you have any good material or links for cathie wood?

Yeah sure here’s a link to their website, also here’s a link to all of the stocks they’re currently invested in. She also has a weekly vlog, which is also a very good watch:

Today’s Portfolio Update, let’s talk about Hertz, Robinhood, Leveraged Trading and that 20 year old boy that sadly died. What is the real issue here? I’m interested in everyone’s thoughts!

Buffet seems like a man out of time to me, his portfolio has a very tired look. Not much in Tech, modern healthcare or innovation.
I know people will say he’s a genius etc but when he says things like all you need is 3 great companys and you will get super rich, and those are firms are like Coka Cola I don’t get it. You won’t, the only way you would be super rich was to put loads in and have loads of time.

Sorry mate but I have to disagree with you here. Since 1964 his CAGR has been 20%+ which completely smashes the S&P 500 to bits. Just because he doesn’t invest in the fancy tech names doesn’t mean he’s lost it… just look at his return over time, speaks for itself.

At this moment, they also have a $137 billion war chest ready to allocate when the opportunity arises.

By investing in companies with a durable competitive advantage over the long term, reinvesting all dividends and using compounding to your advantage - you can build massive wealth. Time is key here, no one gets rich overnight unless you win the lottery.

Warren Buffett will go down as the greatest investor of all time and I don’t think many people would argue with that.

No matter how good an investor he is, his advice isn’t going to help me in my plan for growth over the next few years. But to keep it simple Warren vs Catherine, its Catherine Wood for me.

This chart shows that buffet has underperformed the S&P 500 since the 2008 financial crisis. Buffet did make a lot of money early on, but as the money has gotten bigger, his outperformance has reduced.

You have a great point, Buffet is definitely out of touch, you can’t blame him, he’s over 90 years old. I can’t even get my mum to understand wireless technology let alone block chain, and she’s in her mid 80s! But I still think that Buffet’s wisdom is timeless and still applies today. Look, if you understand what you’re looking for (that’s a very important attribute) and if you spot the future potential for it to reach mass adoption (another important point) then you’re getting somewhere, but the real icing on the cake is temperament, ie time! The longer you wait the more it is likely to compound and turn into 10, 20, 30 baggers and so on. That’s where the money is made! If you identified Amazon 5 years ago and invested £1000 then it would’ve been a 5 bagger (500% profit) turned into £5k. If you identified Amazon in 1997 and invested that same £1k, it would be £16k today. If a stock returns 15% a year on average, it will take 33 years to be a 100 bagger. If a stock appreciates 30% a year on average, it will take 18 years to be a 100 bagger. The capacity to remain invested long enough to produce this extraordinary result comes from personality. Buffet himself always says that for an investor to be successful, they don’t need to be super-intelligent, they just need to have the right temperament. That’s what many investors miss.

Lewis, you took the words right out of my mouth. You said it far more succinctly than my rather long drawn out attempt. Ha ha!

Yes that’s correct he has underperformed since 2008. That’s only a 12 year period which is a minuscule amount of time in the grand scheme of things.

As well as this, Investor’s have performed well due to the 12 year bull market. Let’s see their returns after a couple of bear markets when new trends come and go…

Let’s all just remember that the patient Investor always gets there first. That’s why long term investing beats short term trading hands down. Unless you’re high frequency trading. But then again that isn’t playing fair because the high frequency trader would be the casino and everyone else on the other side of that trade are their customers!

I couldn’t agree more with this! With short term trading you are betting against super computers and for me that’s just a lose lose situation.

Exactly! And remember those high frequency traders are constantly spending billions just to gain that milliseconds worth of advantage over the next high frequency trader! So time still wins out for me!
