Re: Simple IRA Contribution Deadline: Dec or April?

Thanks for the feedback.
So it seems I can't contribute to 2013 from my 2014 pay.
I'll ask for the 60 day window to be clarified.

Simple IRA Contribution Deadline: Dec or April?

i just signed up for a Fidelity Simple IRA with my new employer. I'm told I have to wait 60 days to contribute to the plan, which will then be the last week of December. I thought I could still make contributions, (salary deductions?), for the 2013 year up to the April 15th 2014 deadline. However th...

Re: Simple IRA offered by new employer

Thanks. I've been contributing after tax to my Roth anyway, I suppose I'll now be able to claim tax back.
It's just frustrating that now I'm in my 50's a 401k plus catch up is a wonderful way to save for retirement.

Simple IRA offered by new employer

I'm considering a job offer from an employer that only offers a Simple IRA, which has much lower contribution limits than a 401K.
Is there any other tax deferred mechanism I can use?

Re: Put and Call Options.

[quote="ourbrooks"]I'm guessing that the documents have to do with selling put and call options against the stock you already own,

Yes...that's what they seem to indicate.
Thanks

Re: Put and Call Options.

I didn't want to provide tons and tons of detail and expect someone to work it all out for me.
I just have no idea of the implications of non activity concerning these things.
Maybe I should seek some expert help if it may be important.

Re: Noob. Really easy question on dividend yield.

Ok I think I figured it.

It seems in my 401k I have a different class of shares, non-admin shares, that pay a lesser dividend.

Learned something new today.

Re: Noob. Really easy question on dividend yield.

One lot. All DRIP.
There's nothing mentioned about fees, for this activity, in my account.

It's through Fidelity..probably I should just call.

I just wondered if it was usually (No. of shares x monthly dividend yield = monthly dividend.)


Thanks for the feedback.

Noob. Really easy question on dividend yield.

I have @ 9,400 shares in PTRAX. It states that the monthly distribution today is 0.0279. I had assumed that this would mean my cash dividend would amount to 0.0279 x 9,400 = $262.00 However the amount that's been contributed to my account as a dividend is $172.00. Can someone please help me understa...
