CONVERTIRSE EN MILLONARIO DE LA NADA: PARTE I

Hola a todos, aquí Joey Ortiz.

Bienvenidos de nuevo a la edición de esta semana.

Hablemos de cómo convertirse en millonario, ¿de acuerdo? Quizás te estés preguntando, “Joey, ¿cuál es el punto?”…

El punto es que necesitas metas. Convertirse en millonario es uno de los objetivos más comunes cuando se planifica construir una riqueza duradera. Espera generar riqueza para usted y las generaciones futuras. Si lo haces bien, en un futuro cercano te convertirás en millonario, y algo más.

No dije “rico” porque puedes ganar la lotería esta noche, ser “rico” de la noche a la mañana y estar arruinado nuevamente en uno o dos años. Sería mejor si aprendieras a construir y crear riqueza. Todo comienza con la educación financiera. Una combinación de conocimientos de inversión e impuestos. ¡Sí! ¡Impuestos! Es imperativo aprender a mantener lo que ganó y proteger sus activos.

Comienza lento, pero luego sucede algo único. No solo se convierte en una bola de nieve en grandes números a medida que pasan los años, sino que si sucede algo desafortunado, como perderlo todo, no “sudará” porque sabe cómo generar riqueza y puede hacerlo nuevamente. Pero, esta vez es aún más rápido porque esta vez tendrás algo que no tenías la primera vez, ¡Experencia!

Apple (AAPL) es una de las posiciones más grandes en el Nasdaq.

Una forma de convertirse en millonario con el tiempo es invertir en acciones de dividendos. Muchos de vosotros os hacéis la misma pregunta: ¿Se puede vivir de los dividendos? ¡SÍ! Sí tu puedes. Debe comprender que esta estrategia lleva tiempo porque ha acumulado sus acciones durante décadas. No es un plan para hacerse rico rápidamente. Se necesita tiempo, conocimiento y planificación.

¿Por qué acciones que pagan dividendos? Porque no te quita mucho tiempo de tu vida diaria. Son ingresos pasivos. Todo lo que necesita hacer es establecer una cantidad específica de dinero una vez al mes e invertirlo en sus empresas favoritas. Entonces, sigue con tu vida. Luego, la empresa compartirá parte de sus ganancias con usted como dividendo por su tiempo e inversión. Usted es un socio y se beneficiará como todos los grandes inversores sin hacer ningún trabajo.

No importa si tienes una plataforma básica como RobinHood o algo más sofisticado como TDAmeritrade, Schwab o Fidelity. ¡La razón es que comprará una o dos veces al mes y no buscarás vender nunca! En cambio, desea acumular a largo plazo. En ese caso, la plataforma no hace ninguna diferencia para esta estrategia.

Cosas a tener en cuenta:

1. ¿Cuánto dinero al mes se requiere para cubrir sus gastos y tener algo de dinero extra para divertirse?

2. ¿Cómo elegir en qué empresa invertir? Mire bajo el capó de la empresa (también conocidos como fundamentos).

3. Compare el crecimiento a largo plazo de las empresas

Desde la comodidad de su hogar, invierta en cualquier lugar de los Estados Unidos con Fundrise.

¿CUÁNTO CUESTA?

Punto de partida. Ayudaría si hicieras tus matemáticas. Cada uno de ustedes está viviendo una realidad diferente. Los números varían mucho según sus hábitos, ingresos y ubicación actual.

Como ejemplo, digamos que sus gastos ascienden a $2,500 al mes, y vivirá cómodamente con $1,000 adicionales para usted. Eso significa que necesita ganar al menos $3,500 al mes o $42,000 al año.

¿Cuánto costará? Depende del dividendo que pague la empresa y del precio que pague por las acciones.

Como ejemplo, usemos una tienda minorista muy conocida, Walmart (WMT).

Dividendo = $2.16

Precio = $147 (al 12 de diciembre de 2020)

Crecimiento de Dividendo anualizado = 12.19%

Rendimiento de dividendos = 1.47%

$42,000 / 2.16 = 19,445 acciones necesarias de WMT para cubrir sus gastos anuales.

El rendimiento actual del 1.47% no será suficiente. Ni siquiera supera la inflación.

El crecimiento anualizado no se ve mal, pero el rendimiento actual de 1.47% proyecta crecer a 4.64% en 10 años. No está mal, pero hay muchas opciones con mejores proyecciones de rendimiento.

Y si lo comprara todo ahora mismo, le costaría un total de $2,858,415 (precio actual de $147 * 19,445 acciones). Entonces, a menos que tenga $2.8 millones por ahí, busquemos algo mejor.

Escuche, cuando comience, puede dudar de la estrategia porque todo lo que está a punto de ver es que recibió $1.50 o una cantidad ridícula como esa. Ni siquiera estará cerca de donde debe estar cuando comience. Pero estarás allí eventualmente. ¡El factor crítico, necesitas empezar! Cuanto antes comience, antes podrá llegar allí. Es como tener que caminar a algún lado. Si te quedas en tu sofá, no lo lograrás. Pero si te pones los zapatos y comienzas a caminar, eventualmente llegarás allí. ¡Toma acción!

Divida eso en tres pasos:

1. Decida si quiere vivir de los dividendos y emprender este viaje; si es así, siga leyendo.

2. Cree su plan de inversión (incluye cuánto dinero invertirá mensualmente y en qué empresas)

3. ¡Actúe y ejecute su plan!

Amazon (AMZN) es una de las compañías en el mundo creciendo super rápido.

¿COMO ESCOGER?

Punto número dos. ¿Cómo eliges dónde invertir tu dinero? Bien, hay miles de opciones para elegir en el mercado de valores. ¿No es lo que querías escuchar? Lo siento, pero es la verdad. ¿Y ahora qué?

Una forma rápida pero no siempre beneficiosa de elegir, solo invierta en empresas en las que compre o conozca bien. Eso probablemente será algo como Apple (AAPL), Walmart (WMT), Walgreens (WBA), Verizon (VZ), entre muchos otros.

¿Está mal comprar lo que conozco? No, no está mal. Si esa es la ruta que quieres seguir, que así sea. Como todo en la vida, tenemos que vivir con nuestras decisiones.

Lo bueno es que conoces y confías en estas empresas. Lo malo es que es posible que no te ofrezcan el mejor rendimiento por su inversión.

Muy bien, sabelotodo, ¿qué otra opción tengo? No de la forma rápida, eso es seguro.

Mire bajo el capó: los fundamentos de la empresa.

Utilice un evaluador de acciones gratuito como Finviz o BuyUpside (Calculadora de tasa de crecimiento de dividendos) vea cómo crecen rápidamente los dividendos para ver sus empresas favoritas o no tan famosas. Nunca se sabe lo que puede encontrar. Se sorprenderá cuando descubra que sus empresas favoritas probablemente tengan un precio demasiado elevado y que debería invertir su dinero en otra parte.

Utilizo Finviz para ver los números actuales de una empresa tales como:

– precio

– EPS actual

– Dividendo actual y rendimiento de dividendos, pago de dividendos

– ROE

– Relación actual, relación rápida

– Deuda / capital a largo plazo, deuda / capital

– Forward P / E, PEG, Price to Sales (P / S), EPS de los últimos cinco años.

De BuyUpside, encuentro el Crecimiento anualizado de dividendos de las acciones para proyectarlo en el futuro utilizando ese mismo crecimiento.

COMPARAR EMPRESAS CRECIMIENTO A LARGO PLAZO

Punto tres. Recopile la información para comparar empresas y su crecimiento. Luego, ingrese los números en una hoja de Excel y formúlela para resaltar solo lo mejor. Al final, sume qué empresa destacó más, y esas empresas suelen ser en las que debe elegir invertir porque proporcionan el mejor colchón desde todos los ángulos.

En conclusión, estoy buscando una empresa que pueda proporcionar una excelente rentabilidad sobre el capital. Tiene suficiente efectivo para pagar sus facturas y gastos, tiene una deuda media a baja, un buen rendimiento de dividendos ahora que puede superar la inflación del 3.5% en promedio y un crecimiento sostenible para el futuro. Entonces, incluso si el precio no va a ninguna parte durante diez años, aún puedo recibir más dividendos, gracias a su crecimiento. Además, busque un crecimiento positivo de las ganancias en el futuro y un aumento de las ventas.

¡Ahora, comience su camino hacia la riqueza!

BECOMING A MILLIONAIRE FROM NOTHING: PART I

Hi all, Joey Ortiz here.

Welcome back to this week’s edition.

Let’s chat about becoming a millionaire, shall we? You may be asking, “Joey, what’s the point?”…

The point is that you need goals. Becoming a millionaire is one of the most common goals when planning to build long-lasting wealth. You are looking forward to building wealth for you and future generations. If you do it right, at some point soon, you will become a millionaire, and then some.

I did not say “Rich” because you can win the lottery tonight, be “Rich” overnight, and be broke again in a year or two. It would be best if you learned how to build and create wealth. It all starts with financial literacy. A knowledge mix of investing and taxes. Yes! Taxes! It is imperative to learn how to keep what you earned and protect your assets.

It starts slow but then something unique happens. Not only snowball into big numbers as the years’ pass, but if something unfortunate happens, like losing it all, you won’t “sweat it” because you know how to build wealth, and you can do it again. But, this time is even faster because you will have something this time that you didn’t the first time around, experience!

Apple (AAPL) is one of the biggest holdings of the Nasdaq.

One way of becoming a millionaire over time is investing in dividend stocks. Many of you ask the same question: Can you live off dividends? YES! Yes, you can. You need to understand that this strategy takes time because you have to accumulate shares for decades. It’s not a get-rich-quick scheme. It takes time, knowledge, and planning.

Why dividend-paying stocks? Because it doesn’t take much time out of your daily life. It’s passive income. All you need to do is set a specific amount of money once a month and invest it in your favorite companies. Then, keep going about your life. Then the company will share part of their earning profits with you as a dividend for your time and investment. You are a partner, and you will profit just like all the big investors without putting in any work at all.

It doesn’t matter if you have a raw platform like RobinHood, or something more sophisticated like TDAmeritrade, Schwab, or Fidelity. The reason is you will be buying once or twice a month and not looking to sell ever! Instead, you want to accumulate for the long term. In that case, the platform makes no difference for this strategy.

Things to keep in mind:

1. How much money a month is required to cover your expenses and have some extra money for fun?

2. How to choose which company to invest in? Look under the company’s hood (aka fundamentals).

3. Compare companies long term growth

From the comfort of your home, invest anywhere in the united states with Fundrise.

HOW MUCH?

Starting point. It would help if you did your math. Each one of you is living a different reality. Numbers will vary greatly depending on your habits, income, and current location.

As an example, let’s say that your expenses amount to $2,500 a month, and you will live comfortably with an extra $1,000 for yourself. That means that you need to make at least $3,500 a month or $42,000 a year.

How much will that cost? It depends on the dividend paid by the company and the price you pay for the shares.

As an example, let’s use a very well-known retail store, Walmart (WMT).

Dividend = $2.16

Price = $147 (as of Dec 12, 2020)

Dividend Annualized growth = 12.19%

Dividend Yield = 1.47%

$42,000 / 2.16 = 19,445 shares needed of WMT to cover your yearly expenses.

The current yield of 1.47% will not suffice. It doesn’t even beat inflation.

The annualized growth doesn’t look bad, but the current yield of 1.47% projects to grow to 4.64% in 10 years. Not bad, but there are plenty of better choices.

And if you would buy it all right now, it would cost you a total of $2,858,415 (current price of $147 * 19,445 shares). So unless you have $2.8 million lying around, let’s look for something better.

Listen, when you are a beginner, you may doubt the strategy because all you are about to see is that you received $1.50 or some ridiculous number like that. You will not be even close to where you need to be when you first begin. But you will be there eventually. The critical factor, you need to start! The sooner you begin, the sooner you can get there. It’s like needing to walk somewhere. If you stay on your couch, you won’t make it. But if you put your shoes on and start walking, you will get there eventually. Take action!

Divide that into three steps:

1. Decide if you want to live off dividends and take on this journey; if you do, go to #2.

2. Create your investing plan (includes how much money you will invest monthly and in which companies)

3. Take action and execute your plan!

Amazon (AMZN) is one of the fastest-growing companies in the world.

HOW TO CHOOSE?

Point number two. How do you choose where to put your money? Ok, there are thousands of options for you to choose from in the stock market. Not what you wanted to hear? Sorry, but it’s the truth. So what now?

A quick but not always beneficial way of choosing, only invest in companies that you shop at or know well. That will probably be something like Apple (AAPL), Walmart (WMT), Walgreens (WBA), Verizon (VZ), among many others.

Is it wrong to buy what I know? No, it’s not. If that is the route you want to go, so be it. Just like everything in life, we have to live with our choices.

The good thing is you know and trust these companies. The bad thing is they may not be offering you the best bang for your buck.

Alright, smarty-pants, what other choice do I have? Not the quick way, that’s for sure.

Look under the hood—the company’s fundamentals.

Use a free stock screener like Finviz or BuyUpside (Dividend Growth Rate Calculator – See How Fast Dividends Grow) to look at your favorite companies or not so famous. You never know what you might find. You will be amazed when you find out that your favorite companies are probably too overpriced, and you should invest your money somewhere else.

I use Finviz to look at the current numbers of a company like:

          – price

          – current EPS

          – current Dividend and Dividend Yield, Dividend Payout

          – ROE

          – Current Ratio, Quick Ratio

          – Long term Debt / Equity, Debt / Equity

          – Forward P/E, PEG, Price to Sales (P/S), EPS past five years.

From BuyUpside, I find the Annualized Dividend Growth of stock to project into the future using that same growth.

COMPARE COMPANIES LONG TERM GROWTH

Point three. Collect the information to compare companies and their growth. Then, plug in the numbers into an Excel Sheet, and formulate it to highlight only the best. In the end, add up which company highlighted the most, and those companies are usually the ones to choose to invest in because they provide the best cushion from all angles.

In conclusion, I’m looking for a company that can provide an excellent Return on Equity. Has sufficient cash to pay their bills and expenses, has medium to low debt, a good dividend yield now that can beat inflation of 3.5% on average, and sustainable growth for the future. So even if the price doesn’t go anywhere for ten years, I can still receive more in dividends, thanks to their growth. In addition, look for positive earnings growth into the future and growing sales.

AT&T (T) STOCK ANALYSIS FOR 2022

Do you use AT&T (T) as your cell phone provider? How long have you used it as your provider? A long time probably, since AT&T is a behemoth of a company. Founded in 1983 and currently holds 230,000 employees. It’s as close to a dinosaur as you may think since it has been around forever.

            Verizon Communications (VZ) is the only telecom service bigger than AT&T, with a market cap of $218.48 billion, and was founded in 1983 as well. AT&T’s market cap is $176.95 billion. Closing in on (T) is T-mobile US (TMUS), with a market cap of $150.59 billion.

            AT&T will spin off a part of their business (WarnerMedia) and merge it with Discovery Inc (DISCA). Expect the merger to close out by mid-2022. It’s preferable to wait for the completion of the merge and see how other investors react to the price. It is a cheap stock looking like a bargain, but it could get “more affordable,” if you know what I mean.

Netflix (NFLX) has returned over 450% over the last 5 years.

            Their 5YR P/E is currently at 11.78, making it very attractive and hinting at undervalued or discounted prices. However, return on investment (ROI), assets (ROA), and equity (ROE) are all subpar, with a return of under 2% on all of them. Big red flag for me.

            An eye-popping dividend at 8.5%, which makes many investors salivate. However, we can expect a cut next year once the merger is complete with high certainty. Also, the dividend paid takes about 60% of the Free Cash Flow (FCF), which is not good if you have debt or are trying to grow the business. Currently, a total of $15 Billion is paid off in dividends by the $25 Billion of FCF. That leaves (T) with only $10 Billion of FCF to pay debt and grow the company.

            To make matters worse, their FCF is $23.44 billion. As a rule of thumb, we can multiply that amount by 5 (5YR projection), and we get a total of $117.2 billion. We would love to see their debt under $117 billion. However, their total long-term debt is sitting at an outstanding $284.2 billion, which more than doubles our estimated numbers. It means that (T) has too much debt relative to their free cash on hand.

            Understand that FCF is critical because you can do many great things to help your company when you have free cash. Things like paying down debt, buying back shares, reinvesting in the company, making acquisitions, or paying dividends. As a result, the excellent use of FCF will be more appealing to shareholders than paying a hefty dividend while burying themselves in debt. Just think about it, is the bank willing to lend money to the guy with little to no debt or the guy that makes $50K a year but owes over $200K?

Be a landlord anywhere in the United States, without the hassle.

            Their revenue has grown slowly over the last 5 years. I like that. It is preferable to see slow and steady growth than a chart that looks like a cardiogram with random spikes. When reality sets in, those spikes are always followed by crashes. My only concern is that although they have acquired many smaller companies, their revenue growth has not shown much improvement.

             Following that, their Net Income has shrunk for the last 5 years from $12 billion in 2017 to $1 billion in 2021. Another reason for concern besides their shrinking income is the outstanding shares have gone up from 6.1 billion to 7.1 billion. We want the outstanding shares to shrink and net income to grow. But, just like Santa Claus got it backward when I asked for a lean body and a fat wallet, AT&T got confused as well and had it all backward.

            Not all is bad news with (T). They have grown their FCF from $15 billion to $28 billion. The average FCF for the last 5 years is about $23.4 billion. Estimating this average can be kept for the next 20 years, we can calculate a market cap of about $468 billion. In the beginning, we said the current market cap is $176.95 billion. Our numbers suggest that this metric undervalues it.

Game Stop (GME) the meme stock that ran over 4,700% during the pandemic.

Summary:

            (T)’s good points: Low P/E, big dividend (suitable for investors looking for cash flow), slow but steady revenue growth, slow and steady FCF growth, and “undervalued” per FCF metric.

            (T)’s bad points: Not sure what to expect from the spin-off merger as far as price action, meager returns on ROI, ROA & ROE. There is a high probability of seeing a cut on the dividend, and their debt is too high. Revenue has not grown much despite their acquisitions. Net income is shrinking, and outstanding shares are rising.

            Right now (T) has a lot of work to do. The negative points about the company outweigh the positive. This is only a starting point, so ensure you research and analyze before investing. I believe AT&T has to implement better use of their FCF, lower their debt, generate better returns for their shareholders or they will be painfully looking at their market value fall into a quiet and deathly take over. Therefore, we will only trade (T) with a dividend catch strategy. The only way to consider a long-term position is if the price falls below $20.
