Hi Fools.

What do you think about core holdings? Stock Advisor and Rule Breakers both have core holdings. I understand that GG provides a guide on how to create a global portfolio, but are there cores per region that we should consider?

Thanks

Tylor,

The subject has come up before, and Tim posted his "core" stocks in a previous thread, if one had such a title.

However, with GG, the "core" list doesn't really apply as nicely. Here is the list from memory,(I probably left out some).

PM
WMT
ADDYY
ABB
Rural Boom basket
Chinese Consumer Basket

See what I mean? The rural boom is a combo of several companies, that together make a "core" group of stocks. Thus, it doesn't fit as nicely into the label as other services do. That doesn't mean you can't invest that way.

For good measure, I'll throw in what I consider my "core" GG stocks.

AKO/A
BIP
VEMTF
BLX
ITRN

That's where my global capital is focused. As you can see, STRONG dividends from each of these. I love the nice currency hedge these stocks (and PM), provide. When combined with the (hopefully) great growth stocks in the rural boom/consumer basket, I think 10 years from now I'll be sitting pretty.

We shall see! The baskets have been a wild ride, but I'm here for the long term.

Hi Brian.

Why do you prefer BLX instead of PVD?

Thanks

Tylor,

Both are great (I own both), so if for no other reason, there is no withholding tax of box, but there is on Pvd.

Both are great though.
