- Vanguard ETF & 500 Index continue to appreciate, while the dividends remain extremely low. Its getting very unattractive to invest in them now.
- Gazprom shares at the current prices will provide 5% annual just in dividends, even going by the last year estimates (the dividends last year were 30% lower than previously). Fundamentally the company is very very cheap.
- Gold is going up as investors are worrying and keep putting more money in to hedge against inflation.
- Recent market volatility set me almost a year back in terms of size of the nest egg, while dividends remain the same.
