Personal finance and investing megathread extravaganza

I know lewdog (and maybe others) have mentioned the desire to have a place to chat about personal finance stuff. We'll see if there's enough interest to keep this going in the long-term, but at least for now, here's a place to chat about whatever personal finance topics come up.



If you're just getting started thinking about saving and don't know where to begin, this flow chart can help. Ask for advice in the thread for more help!

Apparently they do a lot of business in lithium, and the articles was pessimistic about them, but with logic that I don't get. They said that demand for lithium is rising quickly since it's used in a lot of batteries and things, and it's rising quickly enough that the author thought that suppliers (of which Albemarle is a major one) would increase supply so rapidly that prices would fall.

Um, okay. A market leader is going to suffer because the demand for their product is going through the roof?

The issue was that Argentina gave out a large quota to a rival. The near term Outlook was that the market would be oversupplied. However, in reading an earnings call, 100% of their capacity is already under long term contracts. I haven't written this all up yet, but the Outlook is strong in my mind.

I've only had ETFs for years but got a wild hair up my ass about making some quick cash to put more money down on a house next year.

We'll see how IQ does.

This GE stock is killing me. Anyone following it closely enough to know if they're going to keep going down and/or if they're going to keep their dividend? They cut it in half last year, but it's still decent.

I don't lose the money until I sell it, and if I can keep the dividend I'll just wait it out (assuming the company survives).

FYI

IQ has 118 institutional investors including vanguard group with 1.2 million shares,
blackstone group 2 million shares ,Wells Fargo 3.2 million shares

Looks like Hillhouse Capital owns a huge chunk 15% of IQ. also owns big in HUYA 17% and had 3 mil shares of BABA but dropped 1,5 mil shares.

Vanguard to offer nearly 1,800 commission free ETFs.

https://investornews.vanguard/coming...-to-investors/

Quote:
In August, you’ll have access to almost all ETFs—from Vanguard and more than a hundred other companies—commission-free when you invest online. We’re excluding inverse and leveraged ETFs because their speculative nature runs counter to our investors’ focus on long-term success.

This lineup of nearly 1,800 commission-free ETFs joins the more than 2,500 no-transaction-fee mutual funds we already offer. And for investors using individual stocks and bonds to build diversified portfolios, we provide competitive commissions, with many investors paying as little as $2 for online stock trades.

“Vanguard wants to be the premier provider for long-term investors who want the flexibility to hold a wide array of low-cost funds and ETFs, coupled with the convenience of interacting with a single firm,” said Risi. “Investors will be able to assemble balanced, diversified portfolios from virtually the full universe of ETFs to meet their financial goals, add additional assets regularly, and periodically rebalance—all without paying a commission.”

But we know it’s about more than just access and low costs. We’ve made considerable enhancements to our brokerage platform over the past several years. And there are plans to invest even more to keep improving your online experience and trading capabilities.

Our focus on providing you with high-quality mutual funds and ETFs has never been stronger. Our settlement accounts are allocated to Vanguard Federal Money Market Fund (VMFXX), which currently yields 1.82%. That’s more than five times the average market rate.* And our Vanguard ETFs continue to offer superior performance—with 95% of them beating the returns of their peer-group averages over the past 10 years.** (Learn more about ETFs and why they’re gaining in popularity.)
