Rate My Stock Portfolio
My strategy are big market cap players with growth potential, mixed with some smaller cap big dividend payout.
Apple (AAPL) - Mobile device profit dominator
Qualcomm (QCOM) - Mobile device exposure
Microsoft (MSFT) - PC dominance. Xbox investment will pay off. Windows 8 coming up. Possible Windows 8 mobile OS doing well.
Starbucks (SBUX) & Yum! Brands - China exposure to food and drinks. SBUX just has a loyal following.
Mc Donald (MCD) - Dependable fast food. Using this as a hedge for fast food, still not immune to rising commodity cost.
Pepsi (PEP) - #2 soda. Investing into food snacks. Possible spin off of the frito lay brands. 3.16% dividend.
Armour REIT (ARR) & Annaly Capital (ARR) - Big dividend players, paying 17% and 13% annually.
Century Link (CTL) & ATT (T) - Century Link for broadband and telecom exposure, and expanding. ATT for mobile phone exposure. Both for its dividend 7.5% and 5%.
Bank of America (BAC) - Big bank. Holding for long term investment. Might switch out for Wells Fargo for more stable growth or a financial index.
Activision Blizzard (ATVI) - Diablo 3, auction house, Project Titan, and hardcore loyal following
Schwab US Large Cap ETF (SCHG) & Schwab US Small Cap ETF(SCHA) - Indexes for some diversification.
I'm obviously heavily invested in tech & food. But it just happens to be industries I'm familiar with I might add something like a Costco or Whole Foods for a retailer. Coach if I want more China exposure. Ebay for the merchant stores and paypal mobile play.
