re: 401k/Roth Rate of Return - DownSouthTiger
You are correct. I know what I am doing so really no need for Edward Jones. I believe though since I have paid for the front loaded funds already the money I have in there should just stay there. I am thinking new money I will do something else with. I am also looking at a place to roll my pension o...

re: 401k/Roth Rate of Return - DownSouthTiger
Yes the company I work for has a return around 19%. Also several of the funds I am in are between 15 and 20% return also. Also, yes I see what you are saying about a 6-7% return meeting my goals while being somewhat safe about it. My main question was understanding the returns to know whethe...

re: 401k/Roth Rate of Return - DownSouthTiger
Yes some were purchased in 2016. I make a monthly deposit but it is on average about one fourth of my monthly 401k pre tax contribution.

Edward Jones has their group of funds they will always want to use and the options I have at fidelity are outperforming those funds by a mile. Thanks I was making sure I was comparing the 2 correctly. Of course Edward Jones wants ...

401k/Roth Rate of Return - DownSouthTiger
I am trying to understand how rate of return year to date is calculated. I have money I contribute each month into a Roth IRA at Edward Jones and this year return so far shows almost %7.8. My company 401k is at fidelity and I make all the decisions myself and have a year to date return of %14. My...

re: Cooking 18LB Fresh turkey in oil less fryer? - DownSouthTiger
My company gave us turkeys for Thanksgiving and they were 18.5 lbs. It was too big for my fryer so I used the oil less fryer I thought it came out fine. I did it for 10 min a pound but didn't worry about measuring internal temp and was still very juicy on the inside. It was starting to get a little ...

re: Weed control in veggie garden - DownSouthTiger
After I plant I fill up the garden with oak leaves. Put them between rows all the way up to the plant. It keeps the weeds down a bit, keeps soil moist so less watering plus they will rot by fall making compost to improve soil. I dont rake leaves either I ride around with a trailer in spring and pick...
