Hello everyone.

I'm a young, spunky investor and I have high ambitions of retiring in 30 years (at age 50)

I am attempting to construct a portfolio with companies that either have long-term growth potential or good DRIPS. Ultimately, I'd like to live off dividends and passive income when I retire.

I flip-flop between either buying more blue-chips and reinvesting the dividends or buying small-cap stocks and let the companies grow on their own.

Dependable blue chips or market cap growth? Or a new strategy altogether?

note: I currently hold positions in Microsoft (MSFT), Hatteras Financial (HTS), and Apple (AAPL).
