The Only 5 ETFs Investments You Need (Long Term BUY & HOLD)

best etfs long term gains

Here are the only 5 ETFs you should own.

I have these five and a couple of small bond funds to go along with some individual stock in small amounts (i.e., TSLA, Google).

The bottom line is to invest in the least amount of ETFs/funds/stocks possible and avoid moving money around as expenses and fees add up.

I buy when the market is down and hold when the market is up.

I also tend to never look at my portfolio in bad times and seldom even when things are going well.
