Seeking portfolio advice. 23 years old- 95k comp, 20k currently in market through the most basic Schwab index funds and Vanguard ETF’s, already max out 401k & IRA. My returns over the past year have been meager. I want to take on more risk and pick more concentrated investments. Whatever I go with, I want to hold them for the long run with no intention to sell. Any advice?
For people who have changed companies what is the best company to move your 401k, I am thinking of Vanguard are there any other better options
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!!

Need some advice in a strategic exit. Looking for the best time to tell current employer that I’ve accepted another offer (will likely be terminated in a day or 2 once told). With benefits typically ending month end, and I’m hoping to get a month off of working (start in Jan), should I tell them on 12/1? My thought is that would allow me to retain benefits through holiday and use free holidays for Thanksgiving to get me through end of month. Anything else I should consider?

Trying to think of non monetary low monetary benefits to close gap
