Personal Investment Chatter

Hi! I’m 30, own a home, 50k in 401k & 25k in Roth, no other savings. Roth has a ROR of 2%. Should I leave $ in Roth? Reinvest in a diff acct? Grow it until I can buy an investment property?

I’d suggest leaving the $25k in the Roth IRA and definitely reinvest it. If you don’t mind me asking, what are you current holdings? 2% return is paltry in this economy. If you’ve been maxing it out, it’s only like 4-5 years old. Over that timeline, the S&P has increased 60%. Also if the account is not 5yrs old, you will get hit with tax penalties for withdrawals.

I put my 401k rollover from a previous company into a Roth and never did anything with it, it’s all short term reserves. So just leave the money and allocate to stocks and bonds? (90/10)

2% ROR in this market is criminal. Is it sitting in a money market? The S&P returned 30% last year. Find a financial planner, although their asset management fees can be high you are losing way more by not being invested in the right funds.

Any thoughts on shifting 401k contributions from traditional to Roth with the new tax code changes? I'd imagine a lot of us benefit from lower tax brackets in 2018.

Maybe it’s burnout from a job where all the cool work benefits you could brag to your friends about are gone bc you wfh now and don’t have access to your cool office and now you work around the clock because there’s no separation between home and work and your agency has done next to nothing to help with that balance and you’ve billed more hours per week than you ever had and now your friends and family are starting to comment on your workload, health, and demeanor. Maybe it’s Maybelline ✨
