Stocks to Add to Your Portfolio if You Are in 30s

Highlights

  • With changing priorities of the investors with age, the allocation of stocks in their portfolio also changes.
  • Investors in their 30s should go for a mix of both high growth and dividend paying stocks for maximum short-term as well as long-term returns.

Investors in their 30s are in a critical age group as they have a huge advantage over the older investors in terms of recovery time required post financial setbacks. They have decades to build up a strong portfolio before they reach their retirement age, and thus can add some high-risk growth stocks to their portfolios. However, the portfolios of investors in their 30s are different from those of the investors in their 20s due to additional responsibilities and more financial burden, such as plans for big events like a wedding, raising children, and taking care of their family. The priorities of investors might change when they’re in their 30s, and thus the allocation of the stocks in their portfolio also changes with age.

Young investors in their 20s typically go for high growth stocks as they can afford to take risks for higher returns, while investors close to their retirement age are more risk averse and thus go for stocks which pay higher dividends and provide stability in the long run. Meanwhile, the investors in the 30s have to play the game of financial balance to take care of their present needs as well as plan for their retirement. Thus, their portfolio should comprise of a mix of both growth stocks and dividend paying stocks for short term as well as long term growth and returns.
