State Income Taxes, Retirement Account Tax Issues, What Is a Short-Term Investment – Your Listener Questions – MTI158

Listener questions again? Yes, and we love it so keep them coming!

Today we talk about making personal finance decisions when your state raises their taxes and can’t balance their budget, where to invest when you are maxing out a ROTH, and more.

Drew says his state’s taxes increased and their finances are a mess. How should I consider my personal finances in this situation?

Rod is contributing to both his employer’s 401(k), maxing out a ROTH IRA and has a brokerage account with more options. Should I contribute more to my 401(k) and less to my brokerage account?

Jane and her husband have no debt. They live in a travel trailer and visit family for 3 months of the year. Assuming an 8 precent return, we should be able to retire at age 48 and my husband at 52. We are saving for a newer used vehicle when it’s time for replacements. Should we put the money into investments or savings?

Collum from Ireland wants to know what we consider long and short term savings, specifically for things like a summer holiday, a car purchase in 3 years, a house in 7 years and child’s college in 18 years.

Student Loans, Debt, Gold and Financial Windfalls: We Answer Your Listener Questions – MTI154

Lots of our listeners are asking what to do with money they have laying around. It’s a good problem to have, and most want to put it to work wisely.

Jeremy is 26 years old and just moved home after breakup. Should he continue to pay off debt or begin saving for a house?

Victor comments on a previous episode that said, “Investing in an overheated stock market is the equivalent to investing in an overheated real estate market”. He points out the differences with the extra risk by being leveraged in real estate versus the liquidity of equities.

Charlie is receiving a windfall of $28,000 from an inheritance and has $23,000 in student loan debt. Should he pay off the student loan debt, use the money as a house down payment, or invest it instead?

Matthew works in the film industry, but his career progression is slow and pay is low. He saved a bunch of money to travel and move before building up another $20,000 in savings. What should he do about saving for retirement and the future knowing that he lives a transient lifestyle?

Diane is the single mother of two children who are now grown and gone. She has $80,000 to invest after downsizing her house. She wants to keep this money safe but invest it for the future as well. Should she buy gold or silver?

Landon will be graduating from school debt free with $20,000 in savings. His current employer does not offer a 401(k) retirement plan, so Landon wants to know how he can invest the $20,000 for retirement.

Gifting Stock, Pay Off Debt or Buy a House, and Saving in Brazilian Currency – MTI151

Great questions from listeners in the mailbag today:

Max wants to give his parents a gift of $10,000 when they retire in a few years. They absolutely won’t accept a cash gift, so could I give them stock instead?

Georgie shares a really interesting metaphor for converting his peers to getting into the market.

Jeremy paid off of all his credit card debt and a ton of student loans in 2 years. Should I continue paying off my debt or begin saving for a house?

Zach questions our decision to have a sponsor, BUZZ Index, when the show is educational about all the various ways to manage money and investments. Joe explains the purpose of the show and how A.I. is helping evolve the active investing industry.

Mike is a newb at investing, but sees the market as being more susceptible to bubbleage with qualitative analysis, roboadvisors and giant indexes. He asks what we think about the possibility that the market is becoming more volatile.

Antonio and his family moved to the United States in 2014. They have a household income of $400,000, giving them lots of room to save and invest. Would it make sense to invest in Brazil where funds can pay around 10-15 percent per year?

Justin asks Miranda to “please stop suggesting people invest their emergency funds in the market!” He almost drove his car off the freeway when he first heard it and thinks this is a bad recommendation for new investors listening to the show.
