I don’t understand why we should bail out the airlines, comm real estate biz, or municipal bond market. Let those industries fail, and those companies that survive I’ll buy there equites for cheap.

It's official. I'm in love with Don Draper. If there ever was a sexy James Bond PPMD with a Pisces - Scorpio mix, he's it. 😍

This constant working is a big reason why old CP+Bers have a frat/sorority-like bond. The hours are terrible, but we are all in the thick of it together.

I noticed my IRA has only been averaging a 3.69% annual return with 83% stock & 17% bond asset mix. Any reccomendations on how to adjust this mix to maximize growth? 25, with a higher risk tolerance

I saved up the last few years for a house, but crunched the numbers and decided it would make more sense to continue to rent. Also made the mistake of being too chicken and missed out on the recent dip in the market, meaning i have about $250K to invest. Suggestions? Safest bet seems to be dollar cost average on a combo of: 1) total stock market index fund, 2) total international stock market index fund, and 3) total bond market index fund, but feel another dip is at hand.

Decline in interest rates -> increase in bond prices. Decline in interest rates -> increase in stock prices. Yet bonds and stocks are inversely correlated. What am I missing? Google isn’t explaining

Just moved 50% of my 401k (about 110k) into low risk bond funds. Please tell me this bubble is likely to pop in the next several months... 🤷‍♀️

Is it a good idea to move current 401k amount to bonds while continue to put all new contributions in stocks/index funds ? Are bond funds too expensive now ? I want to protect the current amount.

401k breakeven YTD right now due to active portfolio management. Shifted to ~65% bonds six weeks ago. Bond funds up 20-30+% YTD. Locking in profits soon and reallocating back to equities. Dow 22000

Stock and investment novice here. What’s the rule of thumb or best practice I guess in terms of figuring out how much dollars to put into one stock? I have a friend who is a bond trader out in Singapore and he says he spends 5Gs as the initial investment into every stock he buys.
