Hello pplz, Im relatively new the whole investing game and came across this site while I was searching for some stuff on google. I've only started making my first investments in June this year, so I was hoping to get some feedback / advice from some more experienced investors, who might be able to point me in the right direction. Im basically starting from scratch here, so you could say im a bit of a noob. I've chosen to start off in shares. I set up a Commsec + CDIA account and have bought some shares. I decided to start off with some low risk, long-term blue-chips, just to get a nice foundation for my portfolio, so I put basically all the money I had into CBA and SGB, which was only about 10k, so 5k in each. And just recently I put 3k into BQT, which amazingly hasn't gone up after all the announcements. My plan was to get a margin loan, and to put some more money into CBA and SGB. They seem to be good regular growing securities, and should hopefully go up about 15% pa + dividends. Now I know that one rule with shares is that you shouldn't go off previous performance, but I think its safe to with steady companies like banks. Do you guys think this would be a good plan? Any feedback / reccomendations would be great. Thx guys.
