Just started investments a month ago, majority in VOO. Have some funds (<5K) in few ETFs where I noticed (last night) the expense ratio is .40, .50, .20, .10 vs compared to VOO’s .03. Thoughts on selling those with higher expense ratio now? ( don’t have a lot of profit or loss at this point as it’s been just a month).

Those are still small expense ratios. Remember old school mutual funds had 1 or 2% enters/exit fees plus 1-2% annual fees on assets under management. Hedge funds are 2&20 - 2% fees on assets and 20% of the profits. Are the more expensive ETFs focused on specific stocks that may be harder to trade or are they small funds?

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.

To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night.

I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

Question: I currently have a bit over $3000 worth of VTI ETF shares.

Does it automatically convert to VTSAX shares?

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting?

Thoughts?
