    I've been gobbling up VTI and SCHD weekly for the past 3 months. Like clockwork.

    To me it’s a great balancing ETF, doesn’t have a ton of crossover to VOO and has a super nice yield.

    I used this morning to bail on about 25% of my ICLN position. With yesterday, today and having too much on the sidelines I’ve bought about $80k more of SCHD. Feeling really good about my portfolio now. Only issue is I held onto some tech plays from 2020 way too long and now I’m chasing losses my not selling them.

    I'd feel good about my portfolio too if I had six figures in SCHD.

    That’s the place to be. Covered calls and cash reserve have been my game for the most part this year. I’ve gone from 45% cash in February to 15% cash currently. I have size-able positions in BA and AMZN, have sell orders for 25% or each at 170 and 150. We’ll see

    Oddly enough I spent a good chunk of time this morning trying to find a new dividend ETF fund. My goal was similar characteristics to SCHD (2.5%+ yield, under .10 expense ratio) but with a low crossover %. That turned out to be quite difficult. Best I found had a .39% ratio which seems super high. SCHD is a workhorse but does have a lot of weight in its top stocks so would love to diversify a bit without sacrificing a ton of yield.

    Open to ideas!
