[ - ] Investment advice on UB is usually Vanguard. Is there no better option? The market losses irritate the crap out of me and while yes I understand 'historically' stocks have returned 5% over time, losing 10% or 20% in a year is hard to swallow. I also understand timing is iffy (moving in and out of bonds, etc) but sitting and watching steady losses suck. I'm getting to the point where a guaranteed 2% return feels better than the see-saw crap. 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Vanguard had low fees. It's a stable company. They have a wide variety of funds. Go online and read about the investment goals and performance of the available funds. I'm sure you can find something with relatively low volatility. Balanced funds have stocks and bonds and the flexibility to shift the mix. I have some of my money in these and they aren't stars, but have done fairly well over the years. Realistically, there will be some see saw and you need to sit tight. [ Reply | More ]

Nope, not "getting ahead in life". That classroom was run like a prison. It just feeds into the school to prison pipeline mentality. The idea that black children are animals and need to be treated as such is immoral. There's a huge difference between being strict and firm and having control and being like that. [ Reply | More ]
