| Money Talk|| re: Should my wife sign this? - Pheeze on 10/3/11 at 10:13 pm|
We're thinking it's likely she'll just be let go tomorrow instead of letting her work the full two weeks. If this is the case then they'll probably pressure her to sign whatever it is before walking out the door.
At a minimum I'm telling her to resist by saying she wants to have a lawyer review...

My wife is in sales and just gave her two week notice to her current employer that she's leaving to go work for a competitor. They mentioned today that they wanted her to sign something before she left. We don't know for sure what it is but it's likely to be some sort of confidentiality, non-compet...

| Money Talk|| re: 401k versus Roth IRA Contributions - Pheeze on 3/5/11 at 8:22 am|
Here's the general prioritization I use when figuring out where I should direct my retirement savings:
1) Contribute to 401k up to company match - in your case this would be ~4%
2) Contribute the remainder to a Roth IRA until you hit the limit
3) Contribute the remainder to a traditional IRA ...

Yes - I'm calculating a historical DSO in order project a future cost of DSO. My reasoning is that if a certain client has some historical DSO they are likely to sustain that behavior in the future. ...

I need some help calculating the cost of excessive DSO (days of sales outstanding) for specific clients.
I think I'm clear on calculating the cost of a single unit of DSO on an annual basis: Client's Avg Sales $$ Day X my company's WACC. Am I correct in this calculation?

Thanks but I'm still not sure how to interpret that.
I have a traditional IRA that was a 401k rollover. Does this mean I have until April 15th (tax day) to deposit into a Roth IRA and pay taxes on it for the 2010 tax year?...

I'm thinking of converting a traditional IRA (old 401k) to a Roth for the 2010 tax year. When do I need to make this decision? Can I wait as long as April 15, 2011 to make the call?
I'd like to wait until I complete my federal taxes to see what impact various conversion amounts will have but no...

| Money Talk|| re: Traditional IRA contribution limits? - Pheeze on 2/13/10 at 12:20 pm|
So with that - one should progress through the retirement options as follows:
1 - Contribute to 401k up to company match
2 - Contribute to Roth IRA to 5k limit
3 - Add to 401k up to max allowable
And past this level, there are no more tax-advantaged options, correct?
My previous thinking ...
