Investing in Bonds (VBMFX) now?

I've been significantly invested in stocks for the last decade. I'm not in my mid-30s and am looking to include some bonds in my portfolio. I currently have a money market that pays about 1.25% if I use a debit card 10x per month. I think there are better options out that have similar risk profiles ...

Thoughts on VHDYX?

I have $100,000 that's looking for a home to earn more than the 1% its earning in the bank.

Most of my investments are in VTSAX.

Thoughts in this minor diversification with some yield upside?

Historical yields on VTSAX?

VTSAX has paid a dividend since 2000. Is there a resource that shows the annual yield and price paid per share for each quarter and year? For example, in September of last year, VTSAX paid about .209 per share which was up about 2 cents from the prior quarter. It seems the historical yield has been ...

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. As I look towards my next deca...

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...
