📈 Investment Update 2024 🚀

Have a nice evening! 🌐 I would like to highlight here today the performance of stocks within the Dow Jones index for 2024. 📊

✨ Biggest growth ✨

Disney $DIS has stepped forward by an impressive +19,3 % A great start to the year for investors 🟢, the stock was dragged up by positive results!

Followed by Merck $MRK with growth +18,2 % 🟢, which is definitely a success in the pharmaceutical field.

American Express $AXP, Travelers $TRV+0.5%, and Amazon $AMZN-0.2% also kept a solid pace with performances around +15 % 🟢

🚀 Some titles are rising on a wave of trends 🚀

Interesting to see Salesforce $CRM grow by +16,2 % 🟢, this suggests a growing position in cloud services.

Not forgetting icons like Microsoft $MSFT +8,4 % 🟢 and Visa $V +9,1 % 🟢, which still hold their weight in the market.

However, ❗ Among the growth, there are some big titles that are seeing declines❗

Companies like Apple $AAPL and Intel $INTC+2.1% are struggling -3% 🔴 a -11% 🔴 loss. Which is interesting given the current market situation. The decline is mainly due to the weaker outlook.

The 📉 biggest losses from the beginning of the year 📉

Boeing $BA and 3M $MMM posted noticeable losses -20 % 🔴 a -16 % 🔴. Anyone following the happenings around these companies?

This year has been very interesting for me so far, how does your portfolio look after a successful start to the year?💸😉
What are your plans (buying/selling)?💹

Yeah DIS makes me really happy, I looked at it yesterday and I'm +40% there, which makes me really happy. Otherwise, I'm accumulating cash, but I'll be adding more REITs.

Reity seems like the best option to me!

Agreed, I was still shopping this week.

@billcombs I'm planning to buy one too.

Nice summary, a list. I'm kind of keeping to the side so far this year. I was taking small profits on $NVDA+2.6% but again I got hasty and failed to trade in $COIN+8.6% and got dominated by the volatility there. Otherwise I would rather see technology a bit lower, although I am happy with $AMD+3.7% for example which I bought back around $100. Otherwise, I'm happy with the aforementioned $DIS+1.1% and $CVS-0.2% overall ...my portfolio was around 4% minus in Jan. (affected by the bad trade at that Coinbase, I have it all under one account for now) and I'll end Feb around 2% plus.

Well, that's nice work, $DIS+1.1% finally got unstuck so let's see how it goes. What's your plan for the rest of the year?

I believe so, the penetration into India will help them a lot. Anyway, investment plans for the rest of the year. So again, try to add as much funding to the portfolio as possible. Adding reits gradually and watching technology companies, companies around AI and waiting for some to fall, or trying to find some picks that have some interesting growth ahead. 😊 What about you?
