5 Mistakes Investors Make with ETFs | Fidelity
In this video, learn about the five biggest mistakes that investors make when buying ETFs, or exchange-traded funds. To learn the basics about ETFs, visit https://www.fidelity.com/learning-center/investment-products/etf/overview. To get started investing with ETFs, visit https://www.fidelity.com/etfs/overview To see more videos from Fidelity Investments, subscribe to: https://www.youtube.com/fidelityinvestments Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/fidelityinvestments Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/fidelity Google+: https://plus.google.com/+fidelity LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/fidelity-investments --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Let’s talk about the five biggest mistakes investors can make when buying exchange-traded funds. ETFs can be good tools for investors - when used appropriately. But with any investment, there are always things to watch out for. Number 1: Buying the Hot New Thing More than 100 new ETF products launch each year, many of them chasing the latest hot trend. Cloud computing, driverless cars, 3-D printing … you name it, there’s an ETF for that. Buying into the latest hot theme might make you big returns, but take care: These product launches may come after there has been a run up in the market. Buying at the top can be painful on the way down. Number 2: Buying Something You Don’t Understand The only thing worse than chasing the hottest trend is buying something you don’t understand. ETFs have taken institutional strategies and made them push-button-easy for everyday investors to access. Want access to commodity futures? There’s an ETF for that. 300% leverage? 200% short? Interest-rate carry plays? Yes to all. But just because you can buy something easily doesn’t mean you should. All of these funds may be good tools, but only if you know how to use them correctly. Number 3: Thinking All ETFs Are Created Equal Consider China. At the start of 2014, there were more than a dozen broad-based China ETFs. For example, had you chosen PGJ, the PowerShares Golden Dragon China ETF, at the start of the year, you would have lost more than 7% of your money. Had you instead chosen ASHR, the Deutsche Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF, you would have earned a 51% return. Both are “China ETFs.” Both can provide big, diversified portfolios. But ASHR has significant exposure to Chinese Ashares—largely consumer-focused stocks listed and traded on the domestic Chinese market— which performed spectacularly well in 2014. Don’t assume all ETFs are created equal. Just because two ETFs cover the same market doesn’t mean they provide the same exposure or returns. There’s no guarantee which fund will perform better in the future. But if you wanted to invest last year in the growth of the Chinese consumer and the domestic investor base there, a little bit of research would have gone a long way. Number 4: Trading…Just Because You Can Trading is central to ETFs. It’s right there in the name. But just because you can trade an ETF intraday doesn’t mean you should. Emotions are often an investor’s worst enemy. You zig when you should zag; you sell at the bottom and buy at the top. We all do sometimes. The trouble is ETFs make that even easier than traditional mutual funds. ETFs’ intraday liquidity can be great when you need to get into or out of the market quickly. But those situations are rare. Number 5: Only Using Market Orders When you do invest, consider using a limit order versus a market order. Market orders are instructions to buy or sell securities at the best possible price right now. That can work well for the most liquid ETFs, but as you move beyond the top dozen ETFs, you can find yourself getting trades executed at prices you don’t really want. Using a limit order means you agree to buy an ETF at a certain price or below, and sell it at a certain price or above. A limit order puts the control back in your hands and can help you set the price on your terms. Learn from these common mistakes to help avoid making them yourself.

Individual bonds vs. bond funds
Which is a better investment? There are pros and cons to each, but Vanguard bond experts Daniel Wallick and Chris Alwine emphasize that a municipal bond fund provides diversification and can cushion against risk. All investing is subject to risk, including the possible loss of the money you invest. Credit-quality ratings are obtained from Standard & Poor's and are measured on a scale that generally ranges from AAA (highest) to D (lowest). *For more information about Vanguard funds, visit vanguard.com or call 877-662-7447 to obtain a prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information about a fund are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing.* Although the income from a municipal bond fund is exempt from federal tax, you may owe taxes on any capital gains realized through the fund's trading or through your own redemption of shares. For some investors, a portion of the fund's income may be subject to state and local taxes, as well as to the federal Alternative Minimum Tax. This webcast is for educational purposes only.

Windhaven Chief: Why ETFs are the Best Portfolio Building Blocks
ETFs are superior building blocks for advisors constructing diversified portfolios due to the financial products' low costs, tax efficiency and indexed approach that active managers find difficult to beat over longer periods. So says the chief investment officer of a firm managing $12 billion using ETFs. ETF Trends Editor Tom Lydon recently sat down with Windhaven Investment Management's CIO, Steve Cucchiaro, to discuss why he likes ETFs and how he's positioning portfolios as the U.S. fiscal cliff looms. Windhaven started using ETFs in 1994 and the investment manager has grown rapidly since then. The firm was acquired by Charles Schwab (NYSE: SCHW) a couple years ago. "My focus in the beginning was on asset classes. I knew the market was much more inefficient at the asset class level than the security level. Therefore you can add a lot more value if you can invest in asset classes," Cucchiaro says, adding that the ETF structure was "by far the best way" to invest in broad areas of the market. In terms of market outlook, he tells Lydon that there is a stalemate currently between deflationary and inflationary forces. Governments, corporations and individuals continue to deleverage and pay off debt. Meanwhile, central banks are launching stimulus measures on the inflation side of the equation. "The next step depends on governments and central banks," Cucchiaro predicts. He said it makes sense for investors to stay diversified and hold ETFs for both recession and inflation. In particular, he likes sectors that can leverage the low cost of capital such as international real estate. Finally, on the fiscal cliff, he expects Washington to kick the debt can down the road with a budget compromise. However, "all bets are off" if we go over the fiscal cliff, he said.

Does index fund investing work for bonds?
Index fund investing is often most associated with stocks, however the same passive strategy can also be used for bond investing. Scott Donaldson of Vanguard Investment Strategy Group says index fund investing can be equally as effective for bonds. **For more information about Vanguard funds, including at-cost services, visit vanguard.com or call 877-662-7447 to obtain a prospectus. Investment objectives, risks, charges, expenses, and other important information about a fund are contained in the prospectus; read and consider it carefully before investing.** All investing is subject to risk, including possible loss of principal. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. The performance of an index is not an exact representation of any particular investment, as you cannot invest directly in an index. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer's ability to make payments. © 2014 The Vanguard Group, Inc.

S&P Capital IQ’s Top 5 ETFS for 2016: SJNK, BNDX, IJR, XLY, USMV
When it comes to ETFs in 2016, investors should keep an eye on the SPDR Barclays Short Term High Yield Bond ETF (SJNK), said Todd Rosenbluth, director of ETF research at S&P Capital IQ. That’s because the SJNK won’t suffer as much when the Fed hikes rates while still offering a compelling yield in a diversified portfolio. 'You get to protect the downside by still get paid because it yields around 6%,' said Rosenbluth. 'We think that credit quality is still going to be relatively strong in 2016 and this is a low cost, diversified way of getting exposure to high yield.' The SJNK has dropped 9.2% in price so far in 2015. Rosenbluth will also be watching the Vanguard Total International Bond ETF (BNDX). In his view the European Central Bank will continue to stimulate economies with bond purchases held by BNDX. This ETF, down about 2% since its launch last January, also hedges currency, limiting the negative impact of the weak Euro. When it comes to stocks, Rosenbluth has high expectations for the iShares Core S&P Small-Cap (IJR), which is down 2.2% so far this year. He said small caps have historically outperformed large caps in Presidential election years, and he also sees strong earnings growth in 2016.

Why I AVOID Index Funds & ETFs (Dividend Investing With Individual Stocks)
I personally avoid index funds and ETFs (exchange traded funds). As a dividend growth investor with the goal of driving passive income (via dividend checks), these investment vehicles do not meet my needs. Today's video compares and contrasts individual dividend stocks with index funds (and ETFs). I discuss the pros and cons of each. In particular, I cover the following: * What are your investment goals? Mine involve massive amounts of cash flow that cover my living expenses so I can visit beautiful places like Hawaii more often. * Do you want to average? That's what will happen with an index fund (by definition). I don't want to be average and that's why I personally invest in individual stocks. * Individual stocks offer control, stability, the opportunity for superior results, more risk (although mitigated somewhat via diversification), lower fees, and a bit more work. * Exchange traded funds and index funds offer less control, the ability to track an index, less risk, higher fees, and less work. * Learn where index funds and ETFs may make sense. Especially retirement accounts that only offer actively managed mutual funds as the alternative. And, charities where there is a fiduciary responsibility. * Learn why I don't like index funds. I just can't see them working for anyone who wants to make a living off of dividends. * Also, I cover three key points: (1) Individual stocks allow one to optimize for dividends. (2) Individual stocks allow one to buy value (buy what's "on sale"). (3) Index funds include lower quality stocks, and lift such stocks to unfair valuations.

Vanguard's recommended international allocation
Research has shown that adding international stocks and bonds to your portfolio helps reduce overall volatility. Vanguard experts Andrew Patterson and Scott Donaldson explain how this works and how investors can go about determining just how much to add. Please remember that all investments involve some risk. Be aware that fluctuations in the financial markets and other factors may cause declines in the value of your account. There is no guarantee that any particular asset allocation or mix of funds will meet your investment objectives or provide you with a given level of income. Diversification does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. Bond funds are subject to the risk that an issuer will fail to make payments on time, and that bond prices will decline because of rising interest rates or negative perceptions of an issuer's ability to make payments. This hangout is for educational purposes only. We recommend that you consult a tax or financial advisor about your individual situation. Advisory services are provided by Vanguard Advisers, Inc.

Intelligent Portfolio Diversification | Asset allocation strategies in stocks
Portfolio diversification is an important factor to profit from the stock market, but the traditional approach is counter intuitive to maximising results. In this video, Garry demonstrates the smarter way to diversify as part of your overall asset allocation strategies. To access the other videos in this series, visit http://specialistshareeducation.com.au and fill out the form. We promise to only deliver valuable training and information to teach you how to invest in stocks. Any advice in this video is general advice only. Neither your personal objectives, financial situation or needs have been taken into consideration. Accordingly you should consider how appropriate the advice (if any) is to those objectives, financial situation and needs, before acting on the advice. Garry Davis (AR No:317590) is an authorised representative of Primary Securities Ltd (AFSL No. 224107). Stock diversification is a common theme amongst investors, and with particular reference to the fund management industry, it generally breeds low performance. The smart way to carry out investment diversification avoids those pitfalls by not buying at the top and selling at the bottom, in other words not following the herd. Strategic asset allocation such as this gives you a much better chance to create above average returns consistently, but remember when you diversify your portfolio that you should always avoid poor quality stocks, and industries that are not in uptrend.

Best Funds to Make Money Investing in 2014-2015
View more details at http://nicerefund.com/ Content Diversified stock mutual funds may be the best funds if you want to make money investing in 2014 and 2015, but keep an eye open as 2014 unfolds in case corporate profits disappoint. In that event, the best funds could be some that most investors aren't even aware of. For the 5 years leading up to 2014, the best way for the average investor to make money investing was to simply buy diversified stock mutual funds and hold on. If you did this you could have earned 150%. These were the best funds for primarily two simple reasons. Corporate profits were growing, and the stock market had previously suffered losses of over 50% due to the financial crisis and the recession it created. Stocks looked cheap. Corporate sales did not grow by leaps and bounds; and the economy was lackluster with totally unacceptable levels of unemployment, which still linger. Record low interest rates stimulated corporate profits and made stocks look attractive. That's why the best funds for average investors were the ever-popular diversified stock variety. In 2014 and beyond it might not be so easy to make money investing. Above all else, stock prices are based on investor expectations of growing corporate profits (net earning per share), and earnings growth could be disappointing in 2014 and beyond. What this means to you is that the stock party could be coming to an end, and you may want to broaden your horizons in your search for the best funds. Uncle Sam is no longer aggressively lowering interest rates to stimulate the economy, and the bull market in stocks is getting long in the tooth (old). So, how do you make money investing and what are the best funds if things turn sour? The best funds could be those that represent a bet that the stock market will fall. I know that the average investor is unaware of the fact that you can bet on the upside or you can just as easily bet on the downside. Some folks even think that to bet against stocks is illegal or just plain un-American. Not so. It's a free country and we have free markets. It's nothing new either. People got rich taking "short" positions during the Great Depression of the 1930s by betting that stock prices would fall... in order to make money investing on the downside. Investors in the know have been doing it ever since. Today it's easier than ever to make money investing is this way. You simply buy an ETF (exchange traded fund) that moves in the opposite direction vs. the stock market: an "inverse fund". They trade as stocks, so you'll need a brokerage account (like with a discount broker) to buy and/or sell them. Some of them come with financial leverage of 2 or 3 to 1. These are the simplest way to make money and are the best funds when the stock market is falling. How do you find them? You can simply enter "inverse ETF" into a search engine. Or, on a day when the stock market is taking a big hit search for the biggest gainers in the ETF arena. Your discount broker's website should make your research simple, since ETFs are extremely popular with investors. How do they work and how do you make money investing in them? Here's an example. Let's say that the stock market as measured by the S&P 500 Index declines by 30% in 2014 or 2015. The ETF with stock symbol SDS is designed to go UP by 60%. Instead of losing money, you make money with financial leverage of 2 to 1. These may or may not be the best funds for you, but I think you should know your options. Most years the market is up, and for the past five years it's been on a roll. If or when economic forecasts and corporate earnings expectations weaken in 2014, the market trend could change. If you are an average investor, your goal should be to make money investing OVER THE LONG TERM. This has become increasingly difficult since the year 2000, as stock investors have twice taken huge losses in the stock market since then. If you want to be proactive, you now know the best funds to jump on when (or before) the tide turns. Investors simply do not make money investing in diversified stock mutual funds in a falling market, even if they are in the best funds in that category. They lose money. Can you imagine actually making money vs. losing it in a declining stock market? The stock market could continue to rise in 2014 and 2015. On the hand, keep yours eyes open. Every few years the market gets into trouble, and the best funds if you want to make money investing in bad times are those that swim against the tide.

How To Diversify Your Portfolio - Part 1
http://www.grahamrowan.com/ - Visit my website for more Tips & Advice http://eliteinvestorclub.com/ Watch last weeks video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-bNTKth8gw Diversification is one of the most important topics in investing. But what does it mean? Let me tell you what it means to me, and I guarantee it’s much more than you’ll hear from any High Street financial adviser… Most text books on investing tell us that it’s sensible to spread our risk through diversification. I don’t know about you, but almost every book and every expert seems to have a different idea about what diversification actually means. If you talk to the typical financial advisor, it means so much in this UK stock market fund and so much in that UK stock market fund. Their knowledge of other asset classes is severely restricted so they never seem to get on the radar. And there’s another fundamental reason why they fail to tell you about many of the asset classes available to you. Professional indemnity insurance. Because you’re paying them for advice, you can sue them if the advice they give turns out to be wrong or bad. So they only talk about investments for which they can get professional indemnity insurance cover. Which brings us back to UK stock market funds. They’re encouraged in this myopic approach by the Financial Conduct Authority, which takes the simplistic view that anything they regulate is safe while anything outside their remit is risky. In the Elite Investor Club we take a completely different approach. As a global network of sophisticated investors, we take personal ownership of our investment portfolio and are prepared to look far and wide for the best opportunities. Andrew Craig’s company, Plain English Finance, deals with the regulated side while my company, Wealth Invest, covers unregulated opportunities. We believe that a well balanced portfolio will feature the best opportunities in both the regulated and unregulated side of the investment universe. On the regulated side, we’re looking for great performance with reasonable fees and the most tax efficient vehicles for investing. That obviously leads us into NISAs where you can shelter fifteen thousand pounds a year from income and capital gains tax, thirty thousand if you’re a couple. Within that we’re looking for funds that own assets across a wide range of countries, currencies and industry sectors. Andrew has uncovered some funds that meet these criteria really well and we’ll be sharing them at the Wealth Summit in November. It really makes sense to use the NISA allowance each year. I know several ISA millionaires who won’t pay a penny in tax when they takes funds out. That’s very different to what happens with SIPPs, self invested personal pensions. With a SIPP you get the sugar fix of tax relief when you make a contribution, but when you take the money out in retirement only twenty five per cent of it is tax free. Obviously, the plan is that your investments will grow to be worth a lot more when you come to withdraw them than they were when you put the money in! So it makes a lot more sense to have the tax relief on the way out rather than on the way in. Also, touch wood, NISAs have not become the political football that pensions have so there’s not been the interference, the Gordon Brown tax grabs or the lifetime limits that we’ve seen do so much damage to the attractiveness of the UK private pension system these last fifteen years. So if NISAs are the best vehicle, the crucial decision is what funds you put in them. When I interviewed Mark Dampier from Hargreaves Lansdown recently he said that ninety per cent of actively managed funds are rubbish. So, if you’re a novice investor, passive funds with low fees such as Exchange Traded Funds or ETFs make the most sense. If you’re an experienced, sophisticated investor, then it pays to look for the handful of managers who can consistently outperform the market so that their higher fees are justified. If you’d like an introduction to Andrew Craig so his team can take a look at your regulated portfolio, just contact me on [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch. Next week I’ll talk about some of the unregulated asset classes that should be in a sophisticated investor’s portfolio. If your advisors have given you a very narrow view on diversification, be very careful out there!

My DIVIDEND PORTFOLIO Stock Allocation Strategy (Investing For Dividends)
I get a lot of questions about the composition of my personal dividend stock portfolio. While I have been starting to share some of my personal dividend stocks in my recent YouTube videos, today's video goes a step further and takes a high level view of my portfolio. In today's video, you will learn about my asset allocation strategy and how I own 36 stocks that pay dividends. If you've been watching my channel for a while, you know that I have this concept of core, medium, and small/ancillary holdings. Today, you will see how I personally break down my 36 stocks across these three buckets. And, you will see the percentages I have allocated towards each. Specifically, I have: * 12 core stocks representing 55% of my portfolio. * 15 medium stocks representing 33% of my dividend growth portfolio. * 9 small stocks representing 12% of my stock portfolio. I also go through the percentages I have allocated towards my largest holdings and smallest holdings. And, I share insights as to why I like my personal asset allocation. A long video, I also transition into two closing topics: * Why it's really difficult for professional money managers to replicate my strategy, but why I love my strategy and sleep well at night. * Why financial freedom is not a destination, but is a journey. I'm a big fan of partial financial freedom, and all of us get there the day we start investing for dividends. I hope you enjoy today's video! Thanks, everyone, for your subscriptions, likes, and comments. Your support is the greatest "thank you" gift ever, and I'm excited about the growing community here!
