I have UVerse and really like it. The internet won't be as fast as Cox but I've never had a single outage and it's still fast enough for Netflix.
The TV stuff from UVerse is great especially if you get the movie channels. UVerse pricing really beats Cox in this department....

They do and Costanza is incorrect. I put in the max this past year and my 401K with employer contributions was well over $17.5K.

Amex Premier Rewards Gold Card wouldn't be bad if you used it for a lot of your work expenses. You get 3x on airline charges and 2x on gas and groceries plus a 15,000 point bonus when you spend over $30K in a year which you say you do.
Granted airline specific cards would be better if you prefer ...

You can put $17,500 in it yourself. Whatever the employer matches also goes in as well up to a certain amount. I forget how much but it's fairly high and won't be touched by most employer matches. Someone on here will probably come along and give the exact figure....

Yeah I'm not a 50 stock guy either. Your portfolio looks fine to me. I was just asking because you listed four or five oil and gas names that you owned. That would be a huge chunk of my portfolio.
I just kept it simple with CVX and several other holdings in different sectors....
| Money Talk|| re: Exxon Stock....buy,hold, or sell - Big Saint on 4/14/13 at 7:41 pm|
Well based on your original post, you have a bunch of oil and gas stocks. Do you have other sectors as well to diversify somewhat? I assume you do but wanted to ask.
Personally I prefer CVX over XOM but have a much younger portfolio as I've only been invested in CVX and the market in general the...
