Hi all, I’m looking at FBGRX (fidelity blue chip growth fund) for Roth IRA but after reading posts in this bowl I’m wondering if I’m better off putting money in an ETF like QQQ instead? Or pure stocks? (I’m young and can take high risk). Super new to investing so trying to make sense of all the investment options and terms. Am also curious how your advice differs for Roth IRA vs regular brokerage. Learning a lot from this bowl so TIA!

My Roth is in a similar managed fidelity fund as well. Doing just fine. With an ETF, the fee will be a little lower but that’s about it

i love FBGRX. It has relatively high turnover so I put it in IRA. Go FNCMX and FSPGX in taxable account

I have settled on having some of my funds in a passive index and some in active funds which are super aggressive, as well as some in indexes that produce dividends and have a value bent. The biggest chunk is in VONG, which tracks the Russell 1000 and is more aggressive than the S&P. FBGRX seems to outperform it. Two things I like that outperform both of those are MSEGX and ARKK, but they’re a little riskier. Good luck!

S2 about to be a S3 in a high COL city making 84k in FDD (top 10 firm) without CPA. Raises are being communicated this week... is it reasonable to counter offer if my raise is not where I want it to be and how could I approach this topic respectfully? I'm really hoping to be in the 94k+ range especially since I've been a key player in my groups biggest client for the last year. I'm considering quiting to pass my exams in the next few months if my raise is not where I want it to be...
