Am I doing it wrong or right? i just started making $120K base (jumping from 80K). I thought that’s going to be significantly more of take home pay, but turns out I’m only going to bring home $4.5K/month. which is same as before 🥺. This is because I’m gonna start maxing out my 401K, HSA, Roth, and buying company stocks (which I didn’t do before). Damn those things add up quickly! 😭 120K - 9K FICA tax - 20K Federal tax - 19.5K max 401k - 6K Roth - 2.6K HSA - 8K company stock = 54K/year. 🤪

New to investing in stocks, what research tools do you guys use? Or how do you pick which stocks you want to invest in? (I have money in ETFS/401k/crypto all that good stuff but want to allocate some money in stocks solely) Thanks!
Does contributing to 401k beyond the match make sense? You can’t touch it until you’re 59.5. If i were to invest on my own in various etfs Ill pay the 22% tax upfront and then cap gains would be 15% when i sell. I’d have freedom to use that money to invest in real estate. when i pull my yearly salary out in retirement I’d Atleast be in the 22% bracket if not higher. Since the last 3 dem presidents have increased spending like crazy i expect massive tax hikes in the future. Am i wrong?
