VTI for me but really doesn’t matter much

I do VOO because I can hedge with SPY options.

SCHB which is essentially VTI

VOO. I little more aggressive but it’s doesn’t really matter at the end of the day

VOO is not more aggressive. VTI is. It has smaller companies that are more volatile

VTI since it includes small/medium cap. However returns are very similar

I joined google almost 4yrs ago and was never reached out by other FANG recruiters about new opportunities. Am I a rare case or is this more common than I thought? Would love to have more options as 4yr cliff coming up.

Does anyone use Public Storage in Venice? I selected the place as near my new place in Ocean Park, but when I saw the unit and the movers put my stuff in, I felt very uncomfortable wondering about vermin, homeless people, and theft.


Just curious about, is there really any impact on your career if you switch a company within a year, not for money but for good work and WLB.

Are the hiring managers going to weigh it while hiring you in future?

Like HM would reject just because you switched that early before, even if you skills are good fit?

Just hearing a lot of noise around it and want to hear from professionals here.

As someone whose weight tends to fluctuate, I am absolutely ecstatic that I’ve been able to maintain (even lose ~5lbs) during quarantine! Stepped on the scale this morning and had to share my exciting news 🤗

It’s easy to get into a rut ... but I’ve been treating myself to one small treat a day (i.e. dark chocolate or a cookie) and it has done wonders for easing cravings. Get outside, do some pushups between calls, you can do this health-fam 💪🏻💯🔥


I feel like the firm just hired me because they just needed a warm body...


PA can be demanding even under ideal circumstances. My heart goes out to our Big4 colleagues in Venezuela!

I set my 401k per paycheck contribution to max by year end. Currently at 16k but I’m quitting my job in a week and won’t have access to new job 401k for a month. Should I just put my entire last paycheck into this company’s 401k to fill it up?


Anyone still waiting on tax statement from Robinhood?


Transferred some stock in kind from one brokerage to another but noticed that each transferred stock appears to be bought at the current price on the day of the transfer (eg. if avg price of my TSLA stock was $500 before transferring now it’s showing $620). Now I’m freaking out because it seems like as a result I’ve erased all my historical gains on the stocks that I had bought at a much lower price years ago? Am I missing something or did I just lose all my unrealized gains by transferring?


Asking for a friend - contributed full $6k to a ROTH IRA during 2021. Due to RSUs vesting is now above the MAGI limit to contribute to a ROTH IRA. Would the best approach be to have the contributions be reclassified to traditional, and then do a back door Roth? (Currently does not have a traditional IRA balance)


I have about 100k of my previous company stock , holding them for 3 years now. They did not grow much like other stocks and it’s risky to have this much amount in individual stock. If I sell them today I would have to pay about 20k in taxes. What’s the recommended way for selling? Should I sell Thai year or next year?


Thoughts on international ETFs like ixus. Seems to be wildly off pace from US Bull right now and really pulling down my overall performance.

Would you rather have 50,000 in 401k (assuming taxes have been paid) or 50,000 cash?


I have a Rollover and SEP IRA alongside my current 401k.

My Roth account has the lowest balance because historically I've taken the tax deduction for pre tax contributions to the SEP and Rollover.

I understand if I contribute the money to Rollover and then backdoor to Roth, I will pay tax pro-rata based on the contribution percentage of total Rollover/SEP account balance (majority tax on funds that have grown).

Q: Can I open another traditional IRA solely for the purpose of the backdoor?

Looking at switching from my current savings account to either Ally Bank Online Savings (1.10% APY) or American Express High Yield Savings Account (1.15% APY). Anyone have experience with either of the two?


I do not own TSLA. Is now a right time to buy and long?


My employer 401k and my personal IRA are both managed by Vanguard. I just realized how much my vanguard 2050 retirement 401k plan (VFIFX) is underperforming compared to the SP500 last 10 years.

Is there anything I can do with my Employer 401k account? The account doesn’t seem to let me pick my own stocks/funds. Can I transfer a portion of my 401k to my personal IRA, and rebalance from there, when I’m still working at the company?


Anyone used the pwc preferred mortgage lenders?


Bought Alibaba back in 2020 and it’s been downhill from there. Should I sell off the $3k max for tax loss harvesting? Does this just reduce my income tax on that 3k?? No other investment sales this year. New to this, thanks.


My pension fund account finally hit 0% return yesterday. It was at 20% IRR at its peak.

Feeling numb.


Dollar cost averaging or put full amount into the market now? For context my fiancé is new to investing and has about $50k to put into the market. Buying VFIAX so not picking stocks


Noob question:
Is it redundant and unnecessary to invest in both VTI (Total Stock Market Index) and VOO (S&P 500 Index)?


Has anyone avoided getting a real estate agent to negotiate a lower price/credits worth the commission while buying a house? How did you go about managing the transaction?
