Hi Im Matt and im new.
Im looking at getting into shares and at the moment im thinking Blue chip long term growth type scenario?
Im 40 own my home have a job offshore oil and gas that earns 200 to 300 k a year. Down a bit thanks to the gfc. As such i dont really want income as i pay to much tax already.
I spend 4 to 6 months away from home and sometimes have no access to the internet. Im know my self and i need a vested intererest to read info and as such start the learning process.
My intention is to buy some shares purely so i have to learn more, im prepared to make some mistakes then start reading about blue chip shares and then maybe look at daytrading when im home in 12 months or so??
Good plan or stupid??
Ive bought 9k worth of woodside, rio, bhp, woolworths, metcash, lynas, Iron ore holdings in the last 2 weeks up $70 haha but its been good as now im here and im reading and im fired up.
Im getting 14k in the next few days from a suspended fund and another thats been doing nothing for atleast 12 months. Should i just bank that and read more or is there some more blue chips i should stick it on???
I understand somepeople are probably rolling there eyes but im trying to be open and honest and any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
