Re: Pension - lump sum or annuity?

When faced with a similar choice a few years ago I chose the lump sum rolled over into an IRA and have not been sorry. This gives you choices of what to do with the money and may provide an opportunity to convert part of it to a Roth IRA at some time [more]

Re: What is an Investment

I also like your third choice, but, I have a bit of a problem with your choice of the word "purchased". I don't see someone "purchasing" a bank savings account.
I (or someone) would like to help with your #1, but, I'm not sure [more]

Re: Any recommendations for Best Online Broker?

There is no "best" or all of the others would go out of business. There is, however, several that might be suitable for you. What are you looking for in a broker?
I suggest you review the postings and FAQ on the Discount Brokers board [more]

Re: Investment Club.

I've never belonged to a club, but, I see the advantages include:
Taking advantage of more people doing research about companies.
Taking advantage of more participants "contributing" to the investing pot of money.

Re: Triple negative?

Is a triple negative a negative? Here's the example:

"I know of no Party that doesn't believe they shouldn't pay taxes"

So is this saying essentially "Every Party I know believes that they shouldn't pay taxes"

Re: I'm getting started

I like the idea of regularly saving/investing, but I don't understand what is magic about $1300 that makes the time (and amount) right to buy a stock. I also don't understand how you can know now that the time will be right to sell a stock exactly 3 [more]

Re: Alere Inc.

I don't know anything about the company, but, I would be very concerned about a single stock representing 75% of ones portfolio. This is a high exposure to single stock risk.
