Yes...J&M is not at the level it was at 10+ years ago as they moved their production facilities from the US to overseas and now use much lower grade materials in 95% of their shoes (I would only consider their highest line shoe - Optima). Per prior posters, J&M have unfortunately (and sadly) gone t...

My $.02 is that each and every person should put a min. of 8% in to not only get your company match (if you have one), but to also get used to not "missing" that money.
I personally believe that everyone should max out their 401K...and do it as early as you can possibly afford to. If you are a...

My ROR in my 401K this year was part of my long term aggressive growth strategy (I have not changed it much at all over the past 2.5 - 3 yrs). Outside of 2008/2009, I averaged just under 20% yty returns in my 401 K since 2004. I have no bonds or individual stocks in my 401K (those are in my persona...

Long time TD reader and Money Board fan....here's mine below for the year:
Personal Rate of Return from 01/01/2012 to 12/31/2012 is 21.1%
All with Fidelity - it was a good year in my 401K (above) and matched that growth in my stock portfolio as well led IBM, Apple, XOM and CVX.

Anyone catching the LSU/UNT game in Paris this year? I was able to watch a game there a couple of years ago and we had a good crowd...figured I would check with the TD nation and hope to see some fellow folks there at The Moosehead bar. Cheers!

Solution is real simple as we first examine the facts below.
LSU's full time in-state tuition costs are $5300 (for the entire year) and it's out of state tuition is $9150. Do you all know how ridiculously cheap this is? We HAVE to raise tuition and by a significant amount - I'm sorry, but a 5% ...
