• Realistically how long would it take for warren buffet to sell all his stocks?

    Considering he bought entire companies multiple times and the extensive work it'll take filing all the IPO paperwork, or setting up private transactions... I'd think quite awhile.

    The market seems to be reacting to the bond market, which is reacting to the FED more than anything.

    The market seems to be reacting to the bond market, which is reacting to the FED more than anything. Trump's tariff wars are playing a part on global growth which of course have an impact on companies that do business globally, but all in all the US economy seems to be outperforming. GDP is a percent higher, and unemployment is over a percent lower than what the FED predictions in 2016 were for 2018. So not really worried. Most of the selling is in the high multiple growth names which after a 10 year bull market needed a little ice water thrown on them. I personally deployed a little of my dry powder late last week and this morning, and looking for more opportunities.

    It depends. I know a lot about investing so I invest in my 401K enough to get the match, but any additional funds up to the contribution limit I deploy myself as I have more control and options in Roth & IRAs.

Then I go back to funding 401Ks. About the only difference is with Roth 401Ks eventually they make you take some out, but you can leave assets in a Roth as long as you like. If you don't have the aptitude or time to research your own investments just doing your additional investing in the 401K can be fine up to their contribution maximum if you have good options in the plan.

  • What is the best IRA to make safe income after retirement?

    IRA's (and Roth's) are merely account types that shield investments from taxation. The investments in them is what does the earning. Income producing securities are a decent option for IRA's & Roth's as you aren't taxed on the income they generate. So other than municipal bonds (which already have some tax shielding) would... show more

    Increases Return on Equity. Let's say you invest a million dollars into a business, and you make $100,000 off the business. A 10% return on equity. Now you figure if you add more capital you could keep earning at that rate. You borrow another million at 7% interest ($70,000). You now have a million in equity, a million in debt, your earning $200,000 less $70,000 interest or $130,000 or a 13% Return on Equity. This of course assumes that business holds up and your able to earn more on the money borrow than your interest rate. So the more debt the greater potential returns but also the greater risk. Some businesses it makes sense to have more debt, like if you operate a chain of hotels, you probably have a lot of debt to buy those hotels but its backed up by the physical real estate that you could in theory sell to cover debt. https://www.investopedia.com/terms/r/ret...

    Probably not, while price information is readily available, I think you'll have issues with the daily shares outstanding, those are at best going to be quarterly numbers.
