J&L 500 Stock Portfolio

I’ve deposited $1000 a month into a Fidelity investment account since 2022. I try to buy individual stocks to hold to retirement. I could just buy ETFs, but I enjoy the hobby of research and thought and competitive investing.

I also write an email to friends every month, where I review my buys and sells and thoughts on the market. I want to force myself to review and justify my work, and gather feedback.

Below are edited copies of those emails.
