We are answering listener letters today:

Amanda picked target date funds in her 403B at work. Is it ridiculous to have positions in two different target date funds?

Michael has STASH, an app for saving and investing extra money you might have into different stocks or funds at any time. What do you know about these apps?

Steve is getting blown out of the buying market in different areas of the world like Sydney, London and Vancouver. What can he do to get into a house?

David has over $100,000 in his a ROTH and 401(k) with 25-30 years before retirement. His goal is to have $1,000,000 saved at retirement. Does his allocation make sense?

Michael, age 26, has an emergency fund. Should I take some of his emergency fund and invest it conservatively?

About our sponsor, BUZZ Index

Ever wonder if there were a way to capitalize on all of that online chatter made by millions of investors on social media? Well, your wait is over, because now advances in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies are at your fingertips…. even if you personally don’t use social media! The BUZZ Index, licensed to an exchange traded fund and trading under ticker symbol BUZ, provides investors with a portfolio of securities that delivers a basket of large cap U.S. equities exhibiting the highest degree of positive investor sentiment. No surveys. No guessing. BUZ only tracks what’s volunteered – and if you ARE online, you know that a lot of information is volunteered: millions of posts, comments and blogs are analyzed each month!

Here’s how it works:. First, BUZZ targets the most mentioned large cap U.S. stocks across the Social Media landscape. The more active the conversation, the greater the reliability of the BUZZ.

Each of the most-mentioned stocks is then given an insight score based on BUZZ’s proprietary analytics and the 75 stocks with the most Bullish scores are included in the Index. Each month the BUZZ is tracked to capture the latest Big Data driven insights and then the 75 companies with the most Bullish scores are selected, positioning BUZZ to capture the highest return potential.
