I’m a huge fan of index trackers but I wanted to test out a single stock portfolio and see how it performs against my trusted Vanguard US Equity Index Tracker.

I don’t recommend anyone who has limited investing experience pick single stocks like I am doing here. This Trading 212 portfolio represents a small percentage of my total investment portfolio.

In this video you’ll see:

1 extra stock I purchased

I plan to run this experiment for one year and record the progress. One year isn’t a long enough time period to truly test a stock-picking strategy and I fully expect over a longer testing period that my stock picking returns will lag behind the indexes.

I chose Trading 212 as they offer commission-free trades so I can move in and out of stocks with zero fees. I’ll be changing the portfolio throughout the year and posting weekly performance updates. I hope you enjoy.
