Question about Bonds

I have little to no money in bonds (I'm in my mid-30s). I do, however, have about 20% of my portfolio in accounts yielding about 1.5% which generate some cash flow and that I largely use for any individual stocks when buying opportunities arise as the quarters flip by.

Re: Another ESPP question

I have a 15% ESPP purchased on the last day of the month with a max annual purchase amoun of $40,000. Shares show up in account 3-5 business days later and I can sell immediately.

Rinse, wash, repeat. Likelihood of a 15% move in that period is generally very low.

If I had to invest 200k in stocks, I'd invest 10k per month in a total market fund/ETF.
If I had to invest 200k in bonds, I'd be happy with your 1.5% return. For the time being.

Thoughts on lump sum investing?

I'm only about 50% in the market right now and have a sizable portion of my net worth earning about 1.5%.

thoughts on investing it near market highs?

I'm in my mid 30s with a couple of six figures worth of investable money in the bank.

Website tool showing Vanguard S&P returns

Is there a tool that you could plug in a start date and monthly, weekly, purchase, etc and a recurring amount that would tell you what you would have made, reinvesting dividends, over a period of time? I would think that would be very helpful, especially over the last decade where returns have not b...
