My Long Term Growth Portfolio

My M1 Finance Portfolio

LAST UPDATED: July 2022

I decided to share my M1 Finance portfolio with you guys. As an author of finance-related material, showcasing my portfolio holdings could help establish some trust and credibility and offer you an insight into my own investment decisions. I think it is important for you to see how my investments fair against the broader market and let you determine whether my investment decision-making aligns with yours.

M1 Finance Portfolio Background

I created this portfolio December 14th, 2021 and have been fine tuning it to my comfortability (risk tolerance level) ever since. I am targeting total holdings of 40-50 companies that I believe either currently create or will create a lot of value for its investors in the future. My long-term portfolio is divided into three subgroups : the Technology and Innovation Fund, the Stable and Staple Fund, and the International Fund. The allocation of capital to each Fund as a percentage is 45% Technology and Innovation, 40% Stable and Staple, and 15% International.

As stated earlier, this is my personal portfolio breakdown, each company has been meticulously chosen based on either some or all of these merits: fundamentals, future (speculative) earnings potential, risk (in terms of beta), market cap, dividends, value added to the average consumer, and whether it has or will achieve a competitive advantage over its competitors.

Fund Breakdown and Information

Technology and Innovation Fund Holdings (45% of Long Term Growth Portfolio)

The Technology and Innovation Fund has a good mix of heavy hitters (Apple, ASML, Amazon and Microsoft) and very promising disrupters who have yet to prove their place in their respective industries (Roblox, SoFi, Teladoc, and CRISPR Therapeutics AG). This fund focuses on five main themes of the future: semiconductors, artificial intelligence, crypto, gene-editing and the metaverse. As you could imagine, this fund is lead by Apple, Intel, Nvidia, Amazon and Meta. Surprising to some, my favorite stock to watch over the next 5-10 years is Intel. The company pays a great dividend and despite its stall in growth in the past, new CEO Pat Gelsinger seems poised on reinstating Intel’s position as the powerhouse of the semiconductor industry. Intel is also heavily invested in completing its American semiconductor manufacturing plants, which could prove to be a huge competitive advantage over other companies like Nvidia and AMD who outsource their chip designs overseas.

  1. Apple (12%)
  2. Intel (9%)
  3. Meta (9%)
  4. Amazon (9%)
  5. Nvidia (9%)
  6. Coinbase (6%)
  7. Microsoft (6%)
  8. AMD (5%)
  9. Roblox (5%)
  10. Rivian (5%)
  11. ASML (5%)
  12. Teladoc Health Inc (3%)
  13. Mastercard (3%)
  14. CRISPR Therapuetics AG (3%)
  15. Paypal (3%)
  16. Sofi (2%)
  17. Visa (2%)

Stable and Staple Funds Holdings (40% of Long-Term Growth Portfolio)

This fund contains companies that have an excellent track record for consistently providing value to its investors (Stable) and are leaders (Staples) in their respective industries. Almost all of these companies provide a dividend to investors and share a relatively low beta (0.81 avg. across 18 holdings at time of writing) in comparison to their Tech and Innovation Fund counterparts (1.32 avg. across 17 holdings at time of writing). This fund is fairly diverse and increases exposure to a wider range of sectors that typically perform better in a market downturn. The Stable and Staple Fund was carefully designed to add stability to my portfolio by minimizing the volatility and risk that the Tech and Innovation Fund will surely bring. This fund is lead by four companies: two consumer staple beasts in Costco and Walmart, one consumer discretionary leader in Home Depot, and one energy sector powerhouse in Duke Energy!

  1. Costco (8%)
  2. Duke Energy (8%)
  3. Home Depot (8%)
  4. Walmart (8%)
  5. Johnson & Johnson (7%)
  6. Ally Financial Inc (6%)
  7. American Water Works (6%)
  8. Applied Materials Inc. (5%)
  9. Chevron (5%)
  10. Coca-Cola (5%)
  11. Exxon Mobil (5%)
  12. Moderna (5%)
  13. North Shore Global Uranium Mining ETF (5%)
  14. Pfizer (5%)
  15. Republic Services (5%)
  16. UFP Industries (5%)
  17. Extra Space Storage Inc. (2%)
  18. Realty Income Corp. (2%)

International Fund (15% of Long-Term Growth Portfolio)

The International Fund gives my portfolio some (very little) exposure to companies outside of the United States. It is largely lead by the Netherlands-based company, ASML, which has an international monopoly on the sale of semiconductor equipment. ASML is the only company that currently makes (and can afford to make) the highly sophisticated lithography equipment used to manufacture semi-conductors. It sells its products to chipmakers such as Samsung, Intel, and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (the manufacturer that currently produces chips for Apple). If you remember earlier, I stated that the target holdings for my portfolio was between 40-50, currently at 42 total holdings. The new holdings that I do add will most likely be added to this fund. I am currently researching other international companies in the emerging and European markets to help offset my exposure to the Asian and US market.

  1. ASML (43%)
  2. Alibaba (8%)
  3. JD.com Inc. (10%)
  4. Toyota (18%)
  5. NIO (5%)
  6. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (8%)
  7. North Shore Global Uranium Mining ETF (8%)
