Re: mad money

Step 1) Buy a monkey (gender won't matter)
Step 2) Buy a package of darts
Step 3) Label stocks you're compelled to buy on a piece of paper
Step 4) Give monkey dart
Step 5) Sit in amazement as monkey will pick the stock for you!

Lololol OP's post sounds troll to me.

Re: Taxable account question

Awesome, thanks for pointing me in the right direction livesoft. So for a brief summary of what I picked out of the few articles I read was that we do not know whether the market will go up or go down. A bonus to depositing it all in a lump sum would be the dividends rather than slowly making contri...

Re: Speech by John C. Bogle

He's reassuring the many investors in the 500 index fund that it's still an excellent investment vehicle. From the mid-70s to the mid-90s, when total stock market index fund started, the 500 index fund was the only stock index fund. The 500 fund was indexing for a couple of decades. The 500 index f...

Re: 22 - New Investor Seeking Advice

Your portofolio and AA look good to me. I'm 21 and I'm almost in the same ball park except instead of the target fund I went with LifeStrategy. My Roth is 80/20 with LS and my taxable is just Total Stock Market Index Fund at 3,000 which I'll be DCA over some time. If you don't need that money anytim...

Re: 21 and headed to college

Awesome points from everyone, thank you sincerly. With all that being said, I couldn't agree more that I hadn't truly emphasized on the risk of a 5-10 year market fluxating up or down. If we're going to look at life time investing (40-60 years) I know stocks are favored. Let's say now, for instance,...

Re: 21 and headed to college

if interest rates were to move dramatically up, your holdings could experience significant (+/- 5 or 10% moves) principal fluctuations, although yields would have to rise to compensate for price decline. I understand this is probably one of the worst times to be investing in bonds. I don't plan to ...

Well to start off, 2012 tax year was my first year opening up a Roth IRA which I have maxed out. So I currently have 5k sitting in VASGX ( Vanguard LifeStrategy Growth Inv ). With that being said.
