I began investing in March of 2018. Since then, I’ve read several finance books on becoming a millionaire and I invest 30% of my paycheck into the stock market every month.

Among the gains and losses made, these are the three stocks I’ve held onto for the past four years and continue to buy during this bear market.

Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ)

QQQ is an index fund that follows the Nasdaq 100 index. It allows you to buy parts of 100 different stocks without buying those stocks individually.

This index fund is similar to buying the S&P. However, QQQ is a lot more volatile.

That’s because QQQ is a tech-heavy stock.

If you were to buy SPY, an index fund that tracks the S&P 500, you’d find SPY’s top two holdings are Apple at 6.83% and Microsoft at 6.06%. Meanwhile, QQQ’s portfolio top two holdings are Apple at 13.11% and Microsoft at 10.53%.

If you want a tech-heavy index fund, QQQ would be a better option. If you prefer a broader index fund that isn’t as volatile and has less risk, SPY or VTI would be a better choice.
