Allowing the child to pick from a group of stocks is a good idea for reasons already mentioned. You didn't mention if the account would be a custodial account (ie., in the child's name). If so, I would think again about that. ...

How do people lose all of their money selling a covered call? If the stock goes down and you want to sell the stock then just buy the call back. The calls will be at a price lower than what you sold it. If the price goes up and the cal...

Peaked within what timeframe? For the short term maybe, maybe we'll get to 1925-1950 on the SP. We are due for a serious correction but the case can be made that we are in a new secular bull market.
The correction will be a buying opportunity for those with some cash on the side or the chance f...

| Money Talk|| re: Education Savings Account for Kids - CajunTiger92 on 2/11/14 at 7:53 pm|
When it comes to setting up a separate account, the first priority should be maintaining control over the money. For custodial accounts, once the child turns 18 years old, the money is theirs to spend as they see fit. PERIOD. For that reason, I would shy away from a custodial accounts. ...

| Money Talk|| re: MT: When do you decide to max out your 401k? - CajunTiger92 on 1/3/14 at 7:06 pm|
One way to eventually max out your 401k is to increase your contributions by 1 to 2% every year at annual raise time (assuming you get one). Naturally this works better if your young and is relatively painless. Some plans can be set up to do this automatically. ...

You are better off after 59.5 because you aren't getting an immediate 10% haircut. That said, paying off the mortgage or getting a new one will depend on how much interest you are paying versus what you can get investing the money.
Keep in mind that the bulk of the interest on a mortage is paid...

This is correct, forget about using the 401k money until you are 59.5 years old. Keeping the money there and consistent contributions should be a priority. Long term growth will work its magic. ...

Not sure if T is the play but it is worth a look. It is only 10% from it's 52 week high whereas IBM is almost 20% at current prices.
What I also like about IBM is that it seems to be backstopped in the low 170s range and management doesn't seem to be complacent. And it doesn't hurt that this is ...
