Let's go! For most, the best investment route is to just purchase a S&P500 index fund/ETF and hold on (*while adding to it often and extra when markets are in a down-cycle). Vanguard's VOO and VFINX have low expense ratios % and are great choices! VTI / VTSMX are also good (total market) options.

Serious answer...if you want long term growth, put half of your gambling money in something that follows the S&P 500. Something like VOO or XLG, whatever brand you like. Then you can take your other 50% and put it in fun stuff to try and make more than the S&P 500. NVDA, GME, AAPL, GWW, again whatever brand you like. Once you learn more, then you can put 25% of your fun money into Options. Once you master all of that, then you can change your percentages around to make your money make money for you. 🤑

You’re not a bad investor for two reasons 1) you’re new and learning. 2) this isn’t investing, what you are doing is gambling. Stop gambling and start investing, I promise it will pay off. You feel into a trap almost all newcomers fall into — chasing fast money. Stop. The best way to make money is to buy great companies or indexes and hold long term. Learn and watch what moves them, and markets, and over time you’ll be able to branch out and pick winners in your own. But it’s all a process. I suggest buying some low cost indexes like VOO, XLK, DIA, SPYG, SPYV… average in over time. Be patient. If you want a little more risk/reward, another very simple strategy is to buy bad news of great companies. For example, when Googles AI had the “woke” issue the stock took a hit. Google is a great company. A massive company. They were obviously going to fix it. So I bought the bad news and it rebounded. Facebook took a beating on some bad news a few years ago, I got in under 100 — now look at it. Stick with it. Keep learning. This is a long term game. The classic get rich slow strategy. You got this!

VOO was initiated in 2010. You are drunk go home.

AAPL is great right now while they have depressed earnings and PE looks artificially wonky. But generally I think in addition to VOO, skew a bit either towards tech, VGT, QQQ etc. or instead modest leveraged S&P like SPXL.

Irish or just in general European ETFs are here, because EU doesnt allow to invest in USA ETF in most EU countries. So we literally have to use it unless for some specific ways.

Dont pay a management fee. Either get VOO (Vanguard Target Retirement Fund S&P500) or similar, or target date fund if you want to be conservative. If you need to bank at Chase, get their CPC Chase Private Client which has most of the same benefits without the management fee. (Find a CPC signup bonus).

Mentions:#VOO

If you're new to investing (and that's great that you're getting started!), buy VOO (or other index fund). And that's it. Invest what you can as often as you can. Learn about companies on your own time and according to your interest level and if you identify an opportunity you're confident about, invest in it in addition. Do not just follow newsletter or broker suggestions, a lot are clueless. If you just invest in a market ETF you will be good over the long term. And don't try to time the market just regularly invest.

Do NOT WORRY ABOUT IT. The stock market was there 100 years ago it will be there in 100 years. I have learned if I missed an opportunity there will be another one tomorrow or next week. I have been thru the moving out of the company 401K into my own 401K. It is terrible how long the 401k company might keep your money in limbo. I do suggest you look at a 10 year chart of the VOO. Do you think it is over??

Mentions:#VOO

The three most important things I use in the stock market 1) I invest the time to educate myself. i have been reading the Wall Street Journal (and Barrons) most days since the 1970s. I keep CNBC or Bloomberg TV on when I am home during the day. 2) with the internet, online trading if you think you made a mistake or you get too much fear you can hit the sell button. If you made a mistake, you can buy back in. This answers your question can I lose all my money. You can lose all your money if your not paying attention. 3) I would rather miss out on a couple of dollars in profit than lose a couple of dollars. It is important to remember in the stock market you are CONSTANTLY learning, building discipline, patience. The stock market is the great economic equalizer. It does not care about your color, your education, how much money you are putting in. It requires you to take 100% responsibility for your actions. There are NO do overs. If you make a mistake and lose money the brokerage is NOT going to cover you. If you have access to the internet and have some money to get started you can turn a few dollars (over time) into a fortune. Losing some money (even all your money) in the market is part of the learning process. I urge you to whatever amount you start with launch in an IRA It has easier tax implications (look it up). start with just the QQQ for the NASDAQ and the VOO is the S&P500. buy a few shares (at least two) of 2 companies that are doing what YOU know. IE when I started my kids they bought Disney and Microsoft (they had an Xbox) You DO NOT have to be in a hurry. The market will be there 100 years from now. Look up your picks in the evening or maybe just a couple of times a week see what happened. Watch the volume levels the highs and lows of the day any news that came out. KEEP LEARNING, BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF. You will be great!

Mentions:#QQQ#VOO#IE

I think this depends on how important investing is to you. The assets you have in the account obviously haven’t done well. Investing in individual stocks is risky, especially if they aren’t blue chip. What I would personally do, is sell everything and buy into an S&P 500 Index ETF, such as VOO/IVV/SPLG or a Total Stock Market Index such as VTI. That way you know you will make money overtime. Since it’s a small amount you really don’t need to buy anything else unless you plan on depositing more in the account. It would be plug and play (no pun intended) and you won’t even have to look at or manage it.

Yeah this is something I wondered too. As there are two components “earnings” and “price” then it can be hard to gauge when the market actually tanks. No one is taking a short position anyway, but if you do then it would make sense to DCA that too otherwise you may as well VOO right now.

Mentions:#VOO

If you have some strategy and exit criteria, TQQQ can be good for medium term plays. I’ve been super bullish on the year and am holding 10% in TQQQ and another 15% in SPUU (2x SPY). I bought in January and TQQQ is up 60%. If I feel my sentiment changes or I become less certain on the market I will switch out of TQQQ and put it back into VOO or QQQ. There’s also some analysis done showing something like mild leverage (1.5x-2x) is very sustainable long term. I’m thinking of putting more into SPUU, especially if there’s some rough red days.

Some t-bill, some VOO.

Mentions:#VOO

Go for it! QQQ is diverse even if heavy in one sector. That doesn’t negate diversity. So many nervous Nellies here it hard to imagine anyone doing anything other than VOO. It’s hard to see Tech becoming less important going forward. Full disclosure I’m heavily invested in XLK, QLD and SCHG. My individual holdings include NVDA, AAPL, MSFT, AMZN, META,GOOGL. I’ve got a lot invested in tech. But I won’t go 100%. It’s enough for me to be up and happy. Beat S&P and make money year over year. It’s all good.

Interactive Brokers (IBKR) might be an option. You should know that investing in a US brokerage account is very different from investing in an international brokerage with an office in the Philippines. In the Philippines, everything practically has a fee. With Fidelity or Vanguard, most transactions carry no fees. At most, you pay 0.03% maintenance for VOO. You can move money between your brokerage and your bank without paying a fee in the US, but not in the Philippines. In the Philippines, money laundering rules can be cumbersome. I’m thinking of retiring in the Philippines myself, but I’m keeping my brokerage account with Vanguard. Vanguard requires a physical mailing address, so I maintain a condo in Arizona. For making transactions while I’m outside the US, I’ve granted authority to transact to my daughter in the US, so she’s able to buy, sell, and transfer cash.

Mentions:#IBKR#VOO

Get 200 shares of ASTS, 10 shares of NVDA, and the rest into VOO.

Broad ETFs such as VOO or VT are never a bad bet in the long run and they’re inherently diversified. However, since you mention wanting to buy a house next year, you should probably not invest in the stock market at all.  Buy bonds, fixed duration, fixed returns, you won’t be stuck a year from now because half of your deposit is not available (not gone if you don’t sell) because of a market downturn. For stocks, 5 years is the minimum duration to reasonably expect profits without it being gambling.

You have lots of redundancy with VTI, VOO and VT. I would go 100% VOO personally

The 0.01% difference probably won't make much of any noticeable real difference , the advantage of SWPPX is you can buy it with any dollar amount as schwab does not allow fractional shares of VOO but the difference will be so small it probably will be un noticeable

Mentions:#SWPPX#VOO

A large part of the TDF is already going to be the S&P 500 (VOO). So you'd be watering down the diversification that the TDF brings. TDFs are designed to be the only fund you hold.

Mentions:#TDF#VOO

It would be interesting to see what they currently have you in. If you truly are a set it and forget it kind of person, then you can definitely do it yourself. If not, then the old saying “the stock market is an expensive place to find out who you really are” applies here. The added benefit of an advisor is having someone coach you and ease any anxiety through market turbulence. VOO/VTI, QQQM, SCHD, and VXUS are good places to park capital if you want to do it yourself.

Hello, I’d like to DCA some cash into ETFs in the next 4-5 months. It’s 30k which is actually the loan for my car at 6.49% for 4years. I decided to pay half cash and half loan. So, the aim is to beat the interest rate over the next 3yrs remaining on the loan. 31, US, Employed, Time horizon 10years, High risk tolerance, No other debts or major expenses I currently DCA weekly into VOO, SCHG, VTI, XHB and SMH. I also buy stocks monthly targeting big tech, uranium, biotech and cyber security. This is separate from this extra cash that I want to invest.

You want index funds with low expense ratios. Like 0.01% instead of 1%. Fees of 1% per year eats away ~25% of gains over time, and fees of 2% wipes out 50% of gains. So be careful with that, but VOO or FXAIX are solid.

Mentions:#VOO#FXAIX

I do 75% target date fund and 25%VOO in my 401k.

Mentions:#VOO

I’m sure people get tired of this one, but SCHD looks damn good right now in terms of valuations. VOO is a solid choice too, but the S&P is at a somewhat rich valuation. I personally never wait for pullbacks. As much of a ding-a-ling Jim Cramer is, one of his favorites sayings is true; There’s always a bull market somewhere. You can find bargains almost all of the time. You just have to look for them, look at their prospects, financial situation, etc. Or just buy a broad index and DCA periodically without thinking about it. Maybe throw in a few individual picks that make actual logical and financial sense. But indexes are the ‘safer’ and most simplistic way of staying in the markets regardless of ATH’s or pullbacks.

Mentions:#SCHD#VOO

As all stock, S&P 500 may have higher expected long term returns than the target date fund. However: >Right now I have a few thousand in fdkvx but have read maybe that is not the wisest choice. Look into FDKLX instead, as it is index based and far lower expense ratio. >What are the pros and cons of funds like that vs buying VOO or other similar funds? S&P 500 only means taking on an uncompensated risk of single country risk. Uncompensated risk is a risk that doesn't bring higher expected long term returns. Uncompensated risk should be avoided whenever possible. Compensated vs uncompensated risk: * https://www.whitecoatinvestor.com/uncompensated-risk/ * https://www.pwlcapital.com/is-investing-risky-yes-and-no/ >Uncompensated risk is very different; it is the risk specific to an individual company, sector, **or country.** S&P 500 would mean removing some compensated risks that are included in the TDF would provide roughly market cap weight exposure to. I have over a dozen links on hand that can help show why going global is probably better than US only. By going S&P 500 only, you'd need to figure out a plan for safety as retirement approaches.

I always tell new investors to start with VTI or VOO and leave the money there and let it make money. As you learn more and want to diversify, put new money in those companies or even take money out of VOO to fund those purchases. VTI and VGT form the backbone of my portfolio at 60% of everything I'm invested in. It's worked well in my case.

Mentions:#VTI#VOO#VGT

Given the long time horizon I'd say just throw it all into either VOO, VTI, or QQQM and forget about it for a decade or two. QQQM might make the most sense given how the NASDAQ it tracks is more aggressive and growth centric then the total market or S&P500.

Mentions:#VOO#VTI#QQQM

True, but if the government seizes your account, it doesn’t matter what VOO is valued at. The current administration is still talking about seizing retirement accounts. I thought that issue had died in the 2012 presidential election.

I did this in 21-22. When stocks go up their recommendations are high fliers, but 22 was a rough year. Lucky I held some of their picks from my short time with them, NVDA, ASML, CRWD, and I only invested with 5% of my portfolio (my “play money”) and the rest is in VOO, VTI, and VXUS. good luck to you!

Oh god no. You would have as much success picking randomly. Maybe more. There is plenty of free material out there. If you really want a subscription look at some good news sites, try some free trials. You need to think what your goals are - are you trying to learn and develop investment knowledge or just make some money on the side investing? If its the latter just put it on an index ETF like VOO. Number one rule of investing is diversification lowers risk. You only abandon that rule (and never completely) if you're a professional and know exactly what you're doing. Even then its not advised given the risks involved. If you know or follow a particular industry very well then maybe pick some winners you really believe in as part of your portfolio but even then it should be a small portion.

Almost no chance if you put it in an index fund like VOO. A very high chance if you put it into some shit stock, or play around with options.

60% VOO and 40% VGT has treated me very well but decrease VGT if you want less risk

ETFs and mutual funds are from your perspective very similar things.  They are both funds that hold stocks based on criteria set by the managers of the fund.  There are some differences such as ETFs trade throughout the day and mutual funds only trade once per day after market close.  An index is a group of stocks that are grouped based on some criteria and is created by some entity.  For example Standard & Poors created and maintains the S&P500.  Some funds purchase the stocks in indexes to follow it such as VOO buys S&P500 stocks to mimic that index.  The Dow or Dow Jones Industrial Average is a similar thing.  There are many such indexes that group stocks based on some criteria.  A benchmark is a standard group of stocks such as the S&P500 that are often used to compare to. A good place to look for answers like this is investopedia.com.

10k NVDA, 10k GOOGL, 10k MSFT, 10K AAPL, 10k META, and 50k VOO would be my pick. Sorry for your loss, good luck

It’s wild what happens when you park your cash in SPY, VOO, or VTSAX.

As a lot of folks have been saying, finding an S&P 500 or total stock market fund, setting it, and forgetting about it is probably your best course of action, assuming you don’t have high interest debts, or honestly any debt that keeps you up at night (pay those down first). I think someone else mentioned it, but make sure that you are maxing out your contribution limits, not just going up to your employers match. Also, not sure if you have children or not, but opening up 529 plans might be something worth looking into as well. Some recent law changes make it more useful as you are not limited to just children’s college expenses, but apprenticeship and K-12 expenses too. Plus, and perhaps more importantly, starting this year up to $35K can be rolled over into a Roth IRA for your beneficiary, tax free. Granted, there are some restrictions you would want to look into, like you must have had the account for 15 years before you roll the one h over, but it’s worth considering. As a general conclusion, I’d say that, as many others have said, VOO or something similar is your best bet. However, make sure you’re thinking about the account type(s) you’re housing the money in so that you can keep the government out of your pockets as much as possible. If you do want a professional opinion, go talk to a fee only financial advisor, not someone that charges for AUM. Best of luck!

The market would immediately crash and I'd panic sell all of my VOO at the very bottom.

"How does one determine if an index fund is an ETF or mutual fund since they have different tax impacts?" Mutual funds are generally 5 letter tickers, with X at the end. Any brokerage should have separate sections to search for available mutual funds and etfs. "Some of the mutual funds and ETFs were mentioned to be a mimic of S&P 500, so what is the purpose of these mimics? Why not just buy the S&P since there is no minimum investment requirement?" If you mean buy all of the individual names in the s and p 500, then you would have to have 500 different positions, monitor for changes. The expense ratio on the VOO ETF (Vanguard s and p 500) is 0.03%; that is barely anything and makes for a much more efficient (one entry rather than 500 and any other trading you would have to do, not to mention monitoring.) There are index mutual funds and index etfs, although ETFs are generally much more passive/index funds whereas mutual funds are more actively managed funds. ETFs trade all day (although if you look at some of the very niche/specific thematic etfs, some may hardly trade), mutual funds you put an order in, at market close it's locked in and the order is filled later that evening at whatever the price is that day.

VTI, VOO, SPY. Pick one and park it. If your $100k disappears, the world has bigger problems.

Minus any tax implications I would put 100% of it into $VOO. It doesn't need to be complicated.
