DoingHomework, I'm absolutely certain you don't know what your are talking about. "I'm fairly certain that you cannot discharge credit card debt in bankruptcy anymore." I assume you are refering to the bankruptcy bill of 2006. This only limits the ability of high income/ asset individuals ...

Rich retiree's for the most part don't have Roths. The ROTH was introduced in 1998 (?). Thus anyone whom retired before 98 will likely have nothing in them, people whom have retired in the last 10 years, will likely have very little in them since their incomes at this time would have generally made ...

I have no idea what debtfree is talking about, how would it take over six years to break even? I assume you mean over six years for the 2450 monthly rent (29400 yearly) rent to equal the purchase price of the home. That is an extremely poor way of valueing any investment. I would recommend that you ...

I predict that Roth IRAs will effectively be taxed within 10 years, for two main reasons, the more likely within this time period second. First, it isn't political suicide. It may be if you do it on everyone, but they won't they will start by doing it on the rich, or 'those that don't need it'. Just...

1. Not all credit card companies have bank deposit bases, see Amex and Discover 2. Even 3-5 year maturity commerical paper is significantly over the 2% yield. You do realize there is a difference between credit card companies and banks. The three most pure credit card companies, Amex, Discover, and ...

Tip 1: Utilize the tax free status. Allocate your assests between different investment accounts based on their tax efficiency. Got alot of short term gain producing assests, stick them in the Roth while your put your more tax efficicent investments in a regular IRA or brokerage account. Tip 1.1: Use...

I have the same question as kmull.

I would probably not refi if the payback was 2 years and I was planning a move in 3. Also, having a large cash position to buy the new home is better than having equity in the old home that will be applied. Underwriters prefer it, and it gives you more options.

Perhaps the rate on savings accounts or time deposits would be more appropriate, That is a bit higher, perhaps more like the 2.5% you are getting so it bumps up my fair rate a bit but doesn't change the principle and doesn't get the rate to 30%. A Rated 20 year maturity corperate debt stands at arou...

Well, just trying to explain what he meant by leaving out accumulated capital from that particular growth model. If I were to point out where your model isn't great, I would point that you are looking only at the revenue side of the equation. They also have the possibility of reducing costs. The bui...

I am going to try and explain what Jericho wrote using an example. You have a money machine, you pull a level, you get money. It can be used by any number of people, because it has an infinite amount of levers. In 2009, the money machine gives you 10 dollars per pull of the lever and you can only pu...

I generally agree with Doinghomework. If I believe I can earn an after-tax return greater than after-tax cost of borrowing. I will do it. If it is a risk free rate of return, then will do it with a very low margin. If it is a riskier proposition, than I will require a higher difference between the t...

There are several parties in the value chain. I agree that Visa likes me. They make a % on every purchase I make. So does the bank providing the merchant's account. But how does my issuing bank make money from me if I never pay interest? Aside from enhancing the risk profile of its portfolio how am...

If you don't mind it not being universally accepted a Amex Gold is fine. I believe the Amex Charge-Cards come with annual fees. They are generally waived for the first year. If the fee is a problem do NOT get an Amex Blue. It has a service level comparable to a Visa/MC Platinum, maybe slightly bette...

Maybe you missed the second sentence. Banks refer to this behavior as transactors, and on a per account basis are some of the most profitable customers. Your point was buisness don't like them, my point is they do. You are right card companies could offer a fixed rate product through a variety of me...
