But I don't see how the sum is compounding. There's no interest earning further interest, just the original stock you bought rising in value.

Hi. I understand how compounding interest works with a bank account. Your money earns interest, and then your original money + the interest earns money. However, I always hear people talk about compounding interest earning them money with stocks, index funds, mutual funds, etc. I don't understand ho...

1)I'm going to be opening a Roth IRA soon. I already have an Etrade savings account, so I was thinking about opening one there, but I'm not sure about fees, etc. I've heard that vanguard, as they own the funds that I'd be investing in, has the fewest fees, etc. Where is your account and why? 2) Ther...

I graduated from college in May and I've got a job that pays $31,000 minus taxes. Better than nothing. I've signed up for the companies 401k match (I put in 6 percent and the company matches half for the first 3 percent and all of the last 3 percent.) Right now, I'm still living with my family, thou...

If you buy from the fund source you shouldn't have to pay transaction fees. So, figure out which funds you want to invest in and then open your Roth at that company. Since you'll only have enough for one fund at this point, I'd go with either a total stock market index fund (if you're willing to go...

I'm very interested in putting my money to work for good causes, especially ones with a positive environmental impact. However, I'm also aware of my my need to make money off of my investments. I don't want to work forever. I've heard time and again that Index funds will outperform 3/4 of all mutual...

Hi. I'm looking for the best free way of tracking my expenses, I want to be able to see where my money goes and why, so I can be analyze how to change things that don't meet my goals. But I don't want software that will create a budget or track my savings account. I may look into that later. I'd lik...

I graduated from college in May, and I've gotten a job at my local newspaper (I'm interning as a reporter, which is a paid position). I'll be hired after 10 weeks if things go well. I won't be making a fortune, (about 31k to start) but I enjoy doing it, which is worth it to me, it furthers my goal o...

On cards that give you points, or allow you to change between cash back and points, are the points worth more online? That is, are items bought with points online discounted?

What's the deal with those?

Hi. I'm not opposed to cash back cards, but are they really the best deal? Will they give you the same amount back as cards that pay in airline miles/hotels/merchandise? I'm really only interested in cards that give me hotels, gas, airline tickets, or money in return for my purchases. What do you gu...

Hi. I have a savings account with etrade. I'm thinking about opening an investment account with them. Are they good/the best? Is there a better service? I suppose I'd mostly be investing in index funds, preferably frequently to take advantage of dollar cost averaging. Do fees kill you? Advice? Thanks.

I've read YMOYL, and I love the idea of financial independence in concept. However, I understand that bonds now receive significantly lower interest rates than they did in the 80s when the book was written. It's probably better now to keep your money in a high interest savings account online. So, is...
