Re: AA - Whatcha think - and how do I get there from here?

Thanks for the reply, bloom2708. Your portfolio feels gimmickee to me. You say that like it's a bad thing :) Why ETFs over Mutual Funds in a buy/hold investment plan? I don't have to meet minimums. Fees are as low as Admiral shares, even in funds where I might have less than $10K. Is there a reason ...

TreasuryDirect bond conversion: Did I make an error?

I wanted to convert some paper bonds to electronic. I went on TreasuryDirect and created a manifest for all the bonds that are primarily titled to me. I started the same process for the bonds primarily titled to my wife, and I realized I might have made an error. 1. Do I need to put the bonds in (si...

I would love to setup a group that could meet periodically in real life and more regularly via an e-mail group for discussing our mutual interest in investing. Look f...
