How does compounding work with the accumulating ETFs?

How does compounding work with the accumulating ETFs and where to find that info for the individual ETFs (assuming there are different types of compounding for the particular ETFs)?

Thank you!

Re: If we cannot predict future and if past results are not a reliable predictor of future...

While we can't predict future, there's an underlying assumption that both equities and bonds go up over time. If this doesn't hold then Boglehead portfolios don't work. What is this assumption based on? A couple of billion people going to work each day. It's not a closed system. Human work and capi...

Re: If we cannot predict future and if past results are not a reliable predictor of future...

We don't know now which will "do better" in the future. That' why it's a good idea to just hold pretty much all of it. Control the amount of risk you take by your stock to bond ratio. Within stocks and bonds, diversify. You see, you mention stocks and bonds like that's a given. Why didn't...

Re: HEDGEFUNDIE Strategy for European Investors

What are the cons of using directly UPRO and TMF for EU investors? Access, and the threat of confiscatory US estate tax on balances above $60k. An EU regulation known as PRIIPs means that brokers cannot offer funds or ETFs to EU investors, where those funds or ETFs do not provide a 'key investor in...

Re: I want 15% yearly ROI. How to go about it?

If I would like to earn on average 15% from my portfolio investments, how to go about it? Let's assume I can tolerate any risk and my time horizon is 30 years. Leverage and an active role. Think real estate investing. What kind of real estate investing? Buying and selling? Buying and loaning? Somet...

Re: I want 15% yearly ROI. How to go about it?

And I would like a cat that actually enjoys writing code and doesn’t have to be constantly cajoled. Your prior post a month ago stipulated a 6% return - why so ambitious? If you want to average 15% annual ROI over 30 years, you’re going to have to be exceptionally lucky and take exceptionally high ...

Re: How much do I need for retirement?

I live in Croatia, that's why my expenses are so low. I've already calculated in unexpected events, but I guess I could add additional 5%. I will play a little bit with FireCalc to check out different scenarios. I now see that assuming 6% flat return is wrong because the market doesn't offer consta...
