    You can add a ???? for me.

    Sold alot near the end of last year.
    Will probably sell some ANZ and WBC this week and have the finger on the button for selling some TLS.

    Alot will hinge on "THE DONALD"

    Came across this which aligns with my own thinking pretty well. Australia isn't in a good situation right now. We seem to be doing considerably worse than, say, the US and there's a lack of anything likely to give our economy a boost.

    Housing's tapped out. Not likely to have another commodity price boom from this point. Can't really have a commodity volume boom without investment that isn't happening. Weather has been reasonable for agriculture so can't really get much better. Etc.

    Thoughts? Am I being to bearish in my thinking here?

    Good evening all, here is the year end wrap up for the All Ords.

    The XAO closed today at 6167 which was up 7.3% for the year. (Up 418 points)

    The XAO first hit this level in April 2007.

    So now our markets have gone no where for 10 years and 8 Months.


    We had several members take a punt on where they thought the XAO would end up at the end of the year. AND THE WINNER IS ME!! (lucky I guess)

    dutchie 4700 Lowest guess

    pixel 6085 second best pick
    bill m 6137 Winner
    systematic 6341

    7% in growth and 5% in dividends just buying the market is not a bad result. I continue to hold high dividend yield ETF's in my portfolio. How is everyone else going? Cheers.

    Well done Bill and Pixel.
    Our group was more bullish than the big brokerage houses in the SMH article, and we were right. 7% + 5% is a good outcome for the Aus market.

    Yes it is but I keep telling myself that the XAO always gets to and surpasses previous highs. I'm just wondering how old I will be when that happens!!:eek:

    I'm tending to move toward ETF's and LIC's, as a larger component of my SMSF, aiming at approx 20- 25%.
    I tend to think the index has to move up, as mining recovers and the population boost, kicks in.
    Picking winners, will become harder IMO, as the unknown effect of technology is felt by different sectors.
    So I'm thinking, with requiring a steady income stream, i'll leave some of the research to the professionals.
    But after six years of pulling a reasonable pension, I still have more than what I started with, so life's good.
    As long as the health holds up.

    Just out of curiosity, what is your favourite LIC? I use the ETF, VHY mostly and I have been very happy with it.

    Might be sooner than we think. Trump's (under)estimated $1.5Trillion in tax cuts to corporations and "job creators" will most likely lit a few rockets under the stock markets (and other financial assets).

    So 2018, 2019 might be very good years. Then we might wake up to the reality that there's only so much value share buybacks can do for a business. That and unless the world's property markets does a GFC 2.0 and ruin everything.

    I looked at only well established LIC's with a track record, can't afford a catastophe, at this point of my life.
    So being conservative, narrowed it down to AFI, MLT and ARG, then I just looked at what they were holding and worked out their dividend/price, I settled on MLT at about $4.58.
    Having said that, I will be buying more LIC's/ETF's, to reach that 20-25% level
    I'm guessing with the new Caps, a lot of SMSF are going to have to align themselves with the index to some degree, there isn't as much wriggle room with a cap.
    Especially when you have a minimum draw down, that increases over time, a margin of safety will be required. IMO

    Good idea, lets throw our hat in the ring and try and predict where the XAO will be at the end of 2018.

    I go for 6341
