Yes, I can share what is in there now, but please remember that it changes periodically.

Please remember also that I am strictly an "amateur", dabbling with my own money only. I am NOT an expert, I do NOT recommend that anyone follow blindly whatever I buy or sell, and I do NOT recommend that anyone put too much into any one or two investments.

I also suggest that anyone trying to manage his or her own funds or investments very carefully watch what they do, research carefully before making moves, and be ready to act if things seem to be headed to anything disastrous! However, it's also best not jump in or out of these precipitously, and, obviously, watch out for commissions that can eat up trades!

That said, I currently have some money in the following:
BGS (B&G Foods)
INTC (Intel)
T (AT&T)
FAGIX (Fidelity Mutual Fund)

AGNC, CIM and NLY are rather risky, but currently pay handsome dividends. I am careful not to put much in those, and am ready to sell quickly if inflation starts to heat up, because I understand their returns could drop fast if and when that happens.

Good luck to you.
