I want to take a slice of that pie

….and I am not talking about that delicious apple pie my wife makes. But, now that I’m mentioning it, I wouldn’t mind taking a piece. I will definitely ask her if she can make some.

No, I was referring to investing in stocks. It was one of the objectives of this year, but as you saw we invested in other assets. For sure it will be our priority 1 investment next year.

There are multiple factors that contribute to my decision of entering in this “game”.

  • The current market in Romania is expanding fast and we get more and more good news regarding new companies that will list during the year.
  • Another factor I am considering is that Romania’s stock market has qualified for the EMERGENT market starting from Autumn, next year.
  • Plus, as a recommendation from a close friend, I’ve been watching the energy sector and the possibility of listing Hidroelectrica – hydro energy on the Danube River (and I will come with a post for this in Stocks category).
  • Good dividends on internal market

If I am going to invest in stocks, I don’t plan to trade them. I want to keep them for long and profit from good dividends. Last year and this year we had payed dividends between 6-7% up to 18%. (source: BVB, where BVB is the Romania’s Stock Market, like NYSE)

Now, there are multiple ‘portfolios’ on the internet, for external stocks, for Romania stocks (I’ll refer them to internal), all kinds of the portfolio (like all-weather) and so one and I will definitely analyze them and even try to simulate some of them (I found a useful tool Portofolio Visualizer,  well…I am not the one that found it, I just stumbled across it).

I will start by focusing on the internal market and there are multiple analyses already done, with big respect for Mr. Rares Mihaila from Investestelabursa.ro and all his youtube content.

My 2 cents on the moment is having a portfolio including more energy producers, preferable regenerable energy. I am still working up the portfolio structure in my head and I have been studying to stockbrokers that have exposures on BVB.

Thank you for reading this!
