    Better off in the stock market?

    Some blue chip stocks have had spectacular falls from grace, think about GE, Kodak, HP etc.

    I think we will see many more such in the next few years that no one would have predicted.

    yes some do go thats why picking a good fund manager is important

    but they also spread risk they may have 30 to 40 and more  companies in a fund

    so if one did go under the fund is diversified

    I am lining several up to get a good mix of risk and geography.

    Thanks

    Yes there are some good companies in there. You can quite easily pick a diverse range of higher yielding shares from just the FT100. Pick a solid quarter from that 100 and you will be yielding well over 5% with a good chance of capital growth each year. Pick well and you'll have shares from a wide range of industries such as pharma, chemicals, consumer, energy, tobacco, construction, mining and financial. Notice I left out tech. Tech may offer the opportunity for capital growth, but the dividends tend to be small or no-existent - what we are going for here is an income fund. A diverse fund of about 25 allows for one or two to perform very badly, without affecting the level of the portfolio too much. And if you are able to reinvest your dividends, you are then able to leverage that portfolio and give it some really big eye watering returns on a ten or twenty year horizon.

    I have to agree with you

    BTL has changed so much and when you compair Stocks with BTL its a very close run thing

    BTL has the advantage of leverage we all know that But with Leverage comes great risk

    The London Market has reported a 4% Loss this year

    That dosent sound a lot but if a Landlord is leveraged at 75% LTV its a lot

    I like a spread of Both today If I see the right Investment property I buy it

    for spare cash I invest in equity

    Both will do OK but Equity is a lot less work and effort and worry at times

    If you want to invest in stocks then putting it anywhere but indexes is a mistake imo. It's a reasonable accepted fact that fund managers on average struggle to outperform the index long term so all you are doing is paying them a nice fee for the privilege of matching an index
