Am invested in about 40 different stocks in Robinhood, which I’ve accumulated over the last 3 years. I’m mostly a buy and hold type person, and it’s worked really well in this market. However, I’m worried that in the future this will be too many stocks to keep track of, as I’m more of a passive investor & don’t check my portfolio often.
Would appreciate thoughts on exit options depending on practice group (NYC) - PE or EC/VC? Or are those apples and oranges?

Hi, any new joiners at PWC SDC, Blore pls help. I got an offer from PwC SDC and my joining is on December. As of now, I have given details for my BGV a month back. When will I be receiving the mail regarding completing the Ethics and Compliance?

I’m working with TCS for about 1.6 years and upgraded to TCS Digital last year. Now after my first annual appraisal was completed, I am wondering how will it be related to the performance band?
Since a C band would result in stoppage of the elevated compensation component. I have heard people talk that someone can get a C band even if they have a >4.5 appraisal rating.
Can anyone kindly clarify?
Hi everyone! I’m going to be in NYC next week and would like to connect with a few local CRE brokers while I’m in town. Anyone open for a happy hour?
I found a company I was really excited about working at. I applied for the job and went through 5 rounds of interviews. At the end they said I was OVER qualified and they want me for a different position higher up in the company. I was super excited they then had me go through 5 more rounds, 3/5 people were the same. The interviews mostly went "didn't you get the job, I highly recommend you? I'll just put you down as a 10". After those were done they told me I was UNDER qualified. Can't win!

I have around 40k in savings. Plan to set aside 15k for emergency (covers ~8 months of normal expenses) and invest 25k.
Any thoughts on the split? Is it reasonable?
Austin fishes.. what’s with this real estate frenzy that’s happening since Jan 2021? Price wars.. 40-50 K over asking... I get the facts..Elon Musk in, Apple in, more disposable $ for investors, Bitcoin and stock market bull runs.. but this real estate madness I see in Austin now.. this is CRAZY!

Proposed new tax plan 👍 or 👎?
Getting around $300k in a settlement (maybe more?) and unsure what to do with it… buying a house is definitely a possibility for next year, as I’m seeing that more houses are forced to reduce prices to sell. What short term investments (1yr) are worth looking into? What would you do? No hookers and blow here, the ROI is horrible.
I’m a young partner looking for a place to park some cash. I invest in the market each month but don’t want my estimated tax payments in the market. Any advice on where to find a decent return that’s fairly secure/conservative? Savings rates are garbage. I-Bonds are great but the 10k max limits me. Thoughts?
anyone invested into Facedrive (FDVRF)?
Recently heard about the company and it looks very interesting... curious to hear your thoughts if you have any!
Have 6 months of emergency savings, really tempted to cut it down to 3 and move the rest into market (index funds / ETFs). Have you had this temptation? How have you handled it?
For those of you with PHEV cars, what's the longest you went without filling up your gas tank? My wife has one and it's like a game for her. She's made it 3 weeks.
Suggestions for Personal Finance books? I'm somewhere in the middle of the road - don't need the basics like the need to save a rainy day fund, pay off student loans (I already have that covered plus have hit a number of milestones including putting the down payment our first home), but I'm also not really interested in super aggressive investing like day trading or watching individual stocks very closely.
If you have $15k and are fairly diversified where would you put your money? Debating between aggressive or moderate growth and want to research some good sectors or ETFs. Already hedging the 15k with some Ibonds.
What are you all doing to maximize investment or apply tax savings strategies (legal ones) before the end of the year?
I have the CSR card since 2018. I don’t see myself traveling much in the next 3-4 years to justify the $550 fee. Is it possible to downgrade to preferred and get the 100k bonus? Contd.
Time to exit ARKK?
Relatively new here... in my early 20’s. Does it make sense to do the traditional 401k or the Roth version? Deloitte offers both. Salary is in mid 90s.
New advisor is suggesting we use LIRP as tax efficient vehicle for annuity at retirement. Any strong opinions for / against?
In Personal Capital, Anyone know how to reclassify an investment money market account as Cash? It seems to allow the opposite move only.

If your concern is just that something will dip and you'll miss it, issue to stop/stop limit/trailing stop based on your risk tolerance on the ones you don't care to follow more actively, make it go out 90 days, and just be able to tolerate it if something dips and rebounds
I’d say think about which stocks have the best chances of being around in 50 years and go from there
The marginal benefits of diversification level off after 20 or so investments. Props on you if you can do the DD on all 40. Personally I’ve got about 10 names that I understand the business kind of well, and straightforward enough that my Econ degree is somewhat useful.
I am in the same boat and not too worried since it's long term...
