Please do comment on which one is opting for my preferences.

Hey everybody,

Senior SWE here, 14 years of experience, working for a medium-ish sized company in the coastal VA area. The development team is extremely small and greatly overburdened. In my last review I asked for 135k trying to highball but they gave me 117k, up from 105k. Do y’all think I was expecting too much, or is it time to peace out?

I’m in New York. I’ve got $80k just sitting in my savings account. I can’t afford to buy a place in NY. I’ve considered getting a house or condo in Orlando area since we vacation there quite a bit and I know I can rent out (assuming it’s approved for short term). Would it make sense to buy a place in FL and rent in NY?


JBHT once again proved the genius of its founder, a 6th grade educated man who struck a deal with the railroads to push van loads by rail. Today, intermodal remains king and continues to be a driver even under the crappiest economic conditions. Think of JBHT as a star player in the North American economy. You can’t escape their containers. This is a huge business and no one does it better. I’m projecting $300/share within a decade.

Thoughts on ETFs that are equal weight maps to the S&P and the Nasdaq? Looking to slowly reduce my exposure to the market cap heavy constituents (AAPL, TSLA, etc) and increase diversity to the smaller constituents.

How dumb is it to be investing in ETFs / a couple individual stocks through Robinhood if I’m not yet maxing out my 401k? I am contributing more than what I need to get the employer match, but I’m not hitting the yearly limit of 19,500 or whatever it is. Should I stop buying through Robinhood until I max out my 401k for the year? Tried searching the bowl but couldn’t find anything useful.

I had rented my condo to an unpleasant “condo maintenance company” as my tenant. Had to end the lease prematurely, a lot of trouble. Now I am deducting about $500 from their deposit of $2150, and he is threatening me that “his attorney will be moving forward and pursue every legal right he has as a tenant enforcing the RLTO”.. am I at wrong here? Anyone knows RLTO?
