Considering an all ETF portfolio as follows, any thoughts? No real plans for the money, not needed short term. I’m 28 years old
US Broad mkt 60%
US bonds 10%
Int’l Equity 20%
REIT 10%

Step 1: 100% allocation to Jan 2020 Disney Calls
Step 2: Profit and quit job


one other thing I wanted to add - don't hold REITs or other income producing security in your taxable account. place those in IRA for tax advantaged growth


Totally agree with this assessment of Disney.
As to the portfolio, at your age, I'd knock the bonds to 5% or 0% (I'd the later). You're very young and have years to recover from anything. As for REIT, I know you're going for an ETF, but take a look at adding some ARI in. I've had it since 2011. It's been fantastic. Don't go all in, but I'd add a little. My 2 cents. Good luck.


Good advice, thanks! I wanted to knock down the bonds but everything I read has a sound allocation % for them. As for ARI, I have a few shares of LXP that I thought would be better served if I sold them and converted to an ETF. Perhaps I’ll hold a few back just for the dividend?

Why Disney calls ?

Disney+ actual numbers for subscribers will be out by then. Post Q4 earnings. They’re down now, figure they can rebound. Could just buy shares now too but I’m going for a big swing

Invest in a healthcare ETF too. The Vanguard one has like a 15% return

I really don’t mind talking to law students. But I wish they would do a little bit of research before we chat.


Senior attorneys at v100, how common is it for attorneys who start at small firms to lateral to biglaw? Have you worked with any? Conventional wisdom is always that if you don’t start there it’s hard to “trade up”. My coworker and I just did it to two different great v30 firms, and I’m wondering if it’s really that uncommon? Just out of curiosity. We’re not special counsel with special niche skills or anything, just associates. Pitfalls to beware? Positives?

Canadians: regarding the RRSP, can someone help me understand this.

1) Can I get my salary paid directly into my RRSP? Is there a difference between this and if I manually move in the money myself?
2) I'll be working in the US and hence will have a salary hike next year, I was told this means I should wait until then to open my RRSP. Is this true?

Thank you in advance! Sorry, I am just very new to all this and overwhelmed.

Thank you in advance.

Is there any realistic way where tipping in the US goes away and we start to be like other countries (e.g. Europe/Asia)? Raise the price of the food, pay servers a fair wage, no tips? Just a dream 😅

I'm guessing no because businesses will fight hard against this (customers subsidize wages) and certain servers benefit from tipping as well.

Only other thing I can think of is if everyone collectively decides not to ever tip again and it forces business to change. Won't happen though.


Crypto 🐠, thoughts on 8% guaranteed annual return on holding stablecoin BUSD? Seems like a good option on holding 15-20% of my investment portfolio into this

I won $25,000,000 last night in the lottery (after tax). I'm 24 with no debt or obligations. I want to invest it into future goals with no lifestyle changes, and let it compound epically over the next 40 yrs.

What's the most efficient vehicle to transfer this money into an index fund without exceeding contribution limits, that also allows me to make executive decisions and divert portions of the funds to future house down-payments, trust funds for family, etc, with limited withdrawal penalties?


When to sell at a loss?

I’m 26 and have a fair chunk of my NW tied to Cloudflare - a tech stock that I believe has the opportunity to 3x and become a $100b+ company over the long term. Similarly, I have a lot in cloud computing etf - WCLD.

Given short term rotation out of growth stocks, I’m confused on what to do. I think we still have some time before growth stocks bottom out, but do I sell?

I would consider myself a “long only” investor, but am unsure what to do given my lack of diversif


Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!


Given the consulting lifestyle we are used to, how much will we need to per month/year to survive?

Forget the 4% and 25 year rule, just a number per month/year? $10k per month? $15k?
