Coffee Can Portfolio

I’m thinking of starting one, capturing only 10 stocks, equal weight at purchase.

I’ll share some ideas here, once I have a list, however I’m keen for suggestions!

I will setup a Pie after, and then can track how its going from there :slight_smile:


Are those stonks?
1 Gamestop
3 Blackberry
4 Nokia

10 xyz

Just teasing you, please don’t take those as suggestions. :wink:

Maybe you can provide some details, and this way it could also help you clarifying your ideias. For example:

  • Geographic exposure (you want % to US, % to UK, EU, Asia, or just 100% US)
  • Sector exposure (% sector allocation)
  • Paying (high) dividends or not
  • Growth vs. Value stocks
  • Market Capitalization (only large caps or also more spicy things. e.g. mid/small/micro caps)

They must be on 212, not concerned about location, sector weighting. Similarly none of FAANG or large caps. Total return / long term growth.

It’s going to be 1% of my portfolio so going for it, within reason.

Some of my shortlist companies is Ceres Power, Agronomics, the sector growth potential is big if they hit right. I might pick a VCT / PE fund as well, or a sector ETF. Fairly agnostic on the holdings.

5 duopolys )

ex; Visa + Mastercard, Pepsi + Coca Cola, …

Why these? They have a bit of a monopoly in the payments market in most places? Where is their future growth going to come from, inflation / new markets?

Similar as Pepsi and Cola, why not throw in Diageo to the mix?


So, you want high risk, high reward stocks/IT/ETF?
