Re: Vanguard customer service

I've been with Vanguard for about 20 years and have no complaints about their customer service. On the other hand, I've had very seldom a need to contact customer service and when I have is has been quite routine questions or requests.

Re: ETFs and P/E and P/B

Ruling out errors, the ususal reason is a different value for earnings. In some cases past 12 months are used and in other cases recent past quarter plus some future estimates are used. Also different sources may handle negative earnings [more]

Re: Estate Planning and Siblings

It seems to me that the odds of all of the primary and secondary heirs passing at the same time is very small and I am willing to let the state take care of the situation.

Re: Penny stocks

No, and you are unlikely to find much discussion of penny stocks at the Fool. For the most part penny stocks are speculation and gambling rather than investing.

Re: Stock Prices?

Some people want to buy the stock and some want to sell. If there are more sellers than buyers the price tends to go down and vice versa. The price you see is a price where both a buyer and a seller have agreed on a price. And another pair of [more]

Re: You Forgot Something

I recall the same thing happening with the speaker at the drive-in theater. Of course at that time they didn't have self-service gas stations then known as service stations.

Re: 401k profit sharing contribution

I do not have any experience but I suspect that the distribution cannot be made until the company makes its calculation based upon which it sounds as if they do it late in the year. Since is is profit sharing they need to determine how much profit [more]

Re: XOP Mutual fund

Why did you buy in the first place? Are the reasons you bought still valid? I would expect that an oil and gas index fund would be volatile so I am wondering what you expected? And if you are worried it is perhaps not the ETF for you.

How long do you expect to be with this employer? Remember that when your employment terminates you will be able to roll the 401k over to a new employer's plan or to an IRA.

Re: Is This Legit or an ID Theft attempt?

I don't dissagree with IRA, but, I think it would be worth another try at a phone call to the IRS. Make sure it is a legitimate telephone number just in case the letter with a number is a fraud attempt.
