REIT - Real Estate Investment Trust's

In my search and readings about finance and financial freedom over the years, there is almost always a section where it says you should own property for passive rental income as a part of your portfolio.

This means having enough money to purchase investment property, maintenance, insurance, taxes and always trying to keep that house/property leased. This maybe a headache people just don't want to deal with, although the headache could very well be rewarding in the long run.

First Buy-In to Vanguards ETF VYM

Based on my portfolio building I outlined Here, I bought into VYM at $67.13 / share on 1-14-2015.

I think I got in at a good starting price, and to be honest I hope it goes down further so I can pick up more shares.





















As you can see since I bought in it has increased in value, although great on my entry I still would like to build more of a position before it really gets to high.

Oil is Dropping - The Energy ETF That Might Be a Great Buy


The price of OIL Has dropped significantly in the past year and has yet to see a bottom, currently hovering around $48/barrel. Some think it will go as low as $30/barrel but time will tell. With OPEC not letting up on production its only a mater of time when they decide to reduce production and prices begin to rise.

Building Positions in ETF's 2015


Starting in 2015 I have started to build positions in ETF's that I am most interested in that offer me the investments and returns that I am seeking. 

Each ETF listed is eligible for commission free at TD Ameritrade. To learn more about commission free ETF investing check this link HERE.

Buy utilizing the commission free trades, I am able to dollar cost average on each position as I am able to put money into each selected ETF.
