Hey everyone, I have been mulling over whether to use a Roth 401k or traditional 401k. I am 23 and just beginning my career. I am currently in the 28% tax bracket. I have researched it a decent amount but I had a few questions before I decide on where to put my money. 1) I've read that traditional 4...

Hey guys, Sorry it took so long to reply and I appreciate all of the responses. I'm going to wait it out a month or two if my car allows it and see what happens. Based on my acceptance of a job offer and the condition of my current car will have a big bearing on how I handle this. One of my job offe...

Well ideally I can make my current car work for another 1-2 months. Since I live very close to campus I don't have to drive often. If that doesn't work, I am fortunate in that my parents have agreed to loan me the first few months until I get on my feet. Intern money is for the car, whether that is ...

Hey guys, I am graduating this December and my car is finally dying on me. It is 17 years old and the repairs it needs are worth far more than its current value. So, I plan on getting a new/used car. I am graduating in engineering and have a guaranteed salary (based on current job offers I have) of ...

Realistically, how much do you guys think this will change ING? I know there is a lot of CapitalOne hate here, but I can't tell how much the average person should be concerned with this buy out.

Thank you both for the tips. I feel a lot more confident now as to what I should do. Not quite enough yet to put it into the Total Stock Market Index, but I think I'll just save for a few more weeks just to keep myself from having the hassle of switching it over.

Appreciate it again.

Thanks for the link VinTek. Read it slowly over the past few days. It seems like the Vanguard Target Fund would be a good choice for me, based on the small amount I am putting in? First, I would assume that I should put it in the 2055 fund (my 65 year mark). This has: 63% Vanguard Total Stock Market...

Thanks again for your response. Sounds like a good plan. At what age would one start diversifying into other mutual funds other than indexes, if ever? Whenever I scan other general advice posts, older people also tend to spread it between state, small cap, large cap, etc. I understand that state and...

Thanks a lot YoungGun. That was exactly the type of advice I was hoping for. I have read a good bit and had come to similar conclusions to what you said. I was planning on doing all stocks since 120-age is 99%...basically 100%. Let me know if this isn't the right move. Is there any method for which ...

Quick Background: I'm currently 21 entering my senior year of college. I have a small sum of money invested in individual stocks (Netflix and Amazon) both of which I went into blindly when they were much cheaper and have almost tripled my investment. Despite these good gains, I realize I mostly got ...
