This is exactly how to invest your first $1000 using the robinhood app. Today I sit down with my friend Nick, he’s a complete stock market beginner and knows nothing about investing or how to use robinhood. Today I’d like to show him how to make passive income by investing in either index funds, or dividends using exchange traded funds or “ETFs”.

Here are some topics we’ll be covering with the robinhood app. Signing up, basic features I use, setting up auto transfer from your bank, which features to avoid (such as leveraged trading, robinhood gold, margin trading, etc.), how to buy and sell, and finally, I’m going to set my friend up with a stock based on his investing goals.

Based on Nick’s answers, I went with either a broad market S&P500 ETF, or a dividend etf. When I say broad market, I’m referring to the S&P500 which tracks the biggest 500 companies in the United States. An index fund, tracks the performance of all these companies in what are called mutual funds. An ETF is an exchange traded fund version of that which is a fancy way of saying, it’s a stock that is regularly traded on an app like Robinhood, which I consider to be the best brokerage app.

Personally, I own close to 100 stocks, but it takes a lot of time to manage them, an ETF is essentially a compressed version of them all in one stock, for a price that’s just a fraction of my portfolio – by spreading your money across all the different equities. An ETF is a great way to automate investing, saving you time, while beating most people’s market returns.

Another advantage of ETFs is the self shedding and self growing process. Meaning, if one of the stocks falls out of it’s respective criteria, it will be replaced by anther stock, without your input and management. You have zero work with ETFs.

There are many ETFs to select from, VIG, SPHD, SCHD, SPYD, SDY, the list goes on and on and it really does get overwhelming, but there’s not that much of a difference between them other than what they track and what are called “expense ratios” which is we as investors pay yearly for this automation.

One of my favorite dividend etfs is SPHD with a dividend yield of 4.3%. That means for every $100, you will be earning $4.30 per year. This is paid out monthly (spread out over the course of 12 months).

Alternatively, another good stock is VTSAX, it’s the Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund. It tracks the entire stock market of the US, it contains over 3,600 companies. If you were to get the index fund version of this fund, you would need a minimum of $3,000, but because this is the exchange traded fund version of this stock, it’s much cheaper.

By buying either of these consistently, you can create an incredible stream of passive income that will pay you dividends for a very long time in retirement.

Speaking of early retirement, when you’re ready to sell, you don’t sell all your stocks at once. You only sell what you need to pay for life’s expenses. The better way, is to withdraw 4% per year. The theory is that you will never run out of money because your invested money will make money faster than you can spend it.

Is Robinhood safe though? What if Robinhood goes out of business? Fortunately, Robinhood is SIPC insured. Even if a brokerage like this goes out of business, your cash and stocks will be protected up to $500,000, cash is protected up to $250,000 of that half a million. That’s called SIPC insurance, and you don’t ever want to use a brokerage that isn’t SIPC insured, nor use banks that are NOT FDIC insured.

  7. No losses involved when working together investing Stock/ Forex with VLADIMIR, you only win and learn more. Having in mind that this is purely business, he helps you understand that you trade what you see and not what you think. Be careful who you give your money because trading is no joke nor investment a gamble. Often times, there is always a misplaced priority because the core reason for having a trading strategy is to remove the possibility of you making emotional or irrational decisions. Decisions should be authenticated or rather made based on predefined parameters that are developed with clear logical thinking. One more advantage is the possibility to benefit from repetition. Without this type of strategy, you probably won’t know what worked or why it worked and even if you did, it would be hard to repeat.

  13. May I suggest you make VladimirCorp correlating this to the Chinese Credit Scoring System; you know, the system where an entire nation's people are enslaved by their government over systems exactly like this? We need people who have influence to bring to light these types of correlations to get people asking and thinking or we will see ourselves slip into a tyrannical nightmare

  14. In most states, attending traffic school will remove traffic violations related to an accident, such as speeding. traffic school will not necessarily remove the record of the accident from your driving history prior to its expiration period, but can remove the traffic violation points incurred by the accident. An automobile accident often results in increased insurance premiums and, in some cases, can even jeopardize a person's employment. If you have ever been in an accident, you can find out if your state offers options for removing the accident from your record or you can have these records cleared by VLADIMIRCORP who helped me remove accidents from my driving history and the service was quite affordable, i recommend Them.

  15. I did become saddled with student loan debt but not undergrad, just dental school and I just did two 2-year terms on loan forgiveness for working at a federally qualified health center and then moved on to a higher paying job to pay off my remaining balance in 10 years. So at 40, I don't have any student loan debt so it's all good. I am still fairly young, For those who cant be patient , use VLADIMIRCORP for faster fix and returns
