Being so young, you'll want to look for stocks that are increasing their dividend each year. Over time this will benefit you a great deal. There are also stocks such as MAIN that are business development companies that invest in many other small businesses therefor are diversified by the nature of their business. Similarly, triple net REITs like O are lower risk and tend to increase their dividends regularly. The two stocks mentioned also pay dividends monthly, so compounding the reinvested dividends occurs faster. A BDC or a REIT still involve risk, so research them carefully, but there are some good ones out there.

If you are conservative investors your port should look like this: 70%VT + 15%BND + 15%BNDX.

Keep it cheap. Keep it simple. Ignore the casino by buying and holding no matter what. Over the long term your returns will blow away almost everybody in here.

AA = 60/35/5. Expected CAGR = 5.7%. GSD (5y) = 7.8%. USD inflation (10 y) = 1.8%. AWR = 3.0%. TER = 0.5%. Net Port Yield = 1.7%. Term = 36 yr. FI Duration = 4.9 yr. Portfolio survival probability = 86%.
