Recommended Technology Stock still going strong after a year!

Last Recommended on 21st July 2017.

I would like to revisit my previous recommendation post back in 2017 for a recommended technology stock.

For years friends and family whom were very keen on owning technology stocks such as Apple, Microsoft, Google and Facebook shares in their portfolio. However prior to my recommendation in Summer 2017, Facebook was about $120 per share and Google was around $800 per share. It was almost impossible to add these high-quality stocks into their portfolio with low starting capital. It  was then I introduced this recommended technology stock index which holds a collection of these amazing companies. *HIGH FIVE*

The bonus part of this recommended technology stock was the low charges of 0.30% and cost only 40p to own a single share. The only disadvantage was the fact that the index did not hold both Netflix and Amazon, as they were not classified as technology stocks. Another thing to note is that there are no dividends paid as they are accumulative (added to share price) index type.

Amazing Increase of 20%

Apple and Microsoft have performed very well (25% and 45% respectively) in the last 12 months which holds 25% of the overall portfolio. Google who holds 15% of the portfolio has not performed as well and currently below its value by most investors. Good news is the upward potential of future Google.

It looks like the ageing IBM holdings have been removed and replaced by more Nvidia shares. This should help with a better growth profile. Nvidia has nicely grown more than 70% in the last 12 months.

Comparing against the Dow Jones Industrial index, the recommended technology stock index has grown 20% against DJI 15% over the last 12 months.

Over the last 5 years, the recommended technology stock index itself has outperformed the DJI by a mile (>60%)!

Still Recommended?

I sound like an top salesman and sure you are raring to invest in this amazing recommended technology stock right here. NO, I do not receive any commissions whatsoever from any of these companies or Legal and General themselves. If I did, I would be driving a Ferrari by now. Let's get back to the topic.

Yes, I still highly recommend this to many new investors starting out. A nest of the global excellent quality companies in a single index is a no-brainer. For those still want to start out, this would sit nicely with your S&P500 index and your emerging market index. Top it up every month or quarter, and that's your future retirement fund in progress.

Personally, I still buy into the index whenever there is a correction cycle. Back in Feb/Mar 2018, there was a Technology sell off globally and diligently bought more.

I hope this is useful for you readers and investors. Please leave me a comment or even a smiley face (or poop emoji) if you like this article!
