Haha..I tried to get Hawaii for my dut station but I was pushed to Southern California...haha I still got a good assignment.

You have to learn to forget about it and just save with the good times and the low times. Longevity is the key and being younger you have plenty of it as well as compounded interest! Forget about mods and save more. Ok maybe 1 or 2 small things but nothing big.

After $10,000 you will start to see more of the gains! Good Luck. Just a tip and take it for what it's worth but buy some LOWES stock. My dad works there as a supervisor and one of my ex-girlfriends mom use to work there as well many years ago and employees are making tons of money of the stock since it has split every 5 years. It just recently split and my dad doubled his money. People have become millionaries off that stock. I'm going to get me some!

FYI:

When a stock spits you don't double your money, you double your shares. So if you own 100 shares at $50.00 and the stock splits, you now own 200 shares at $25.00.

Thanks...

Etrade... I'm quite diversified. I kind of build my portfolio into chunks. Income.. i.e. stocks and mf's that have a high percentage dividend payout. Aggressive growth stocks. Growth, etc...

I invest both pre-tax (IRA) and post tax.

I have 50 % of my money in a cash account through a registered investment advisor affiliated with TD ameritrade in which the money is invested in stocks and ETF's. 40 % in Mutual Funds in which 75% of that is in an IRA and the remaining 25 % in a non-qualified cash account. Final 10% of my money I have in an Optionsxpress account where I can trade Call and Put Options and the like.

I'm 24 and use Raymond James. My buddy is my investor, so if he fucks me I know where he lives and I'll kill him in his sleep haha. I'm spread out through several markets. Mainly Mutual Funds, a Roth IRA, money markets, and some stocks. So far I'm doing well and things are starting to pick up some steam.

I do invest, and I work for an investment company. My advice would be to strongly diversify your assets. Unless you want to really do alot of research, I do not recommended putting much of your portfolio towards common stock. Invest in funds or have a managed account. Let them do the research and diversify your portfolio for you. Max out your 401k since it's pretax, and if you have kids or plan on having kids, start making contributions to your 529. At this point, because of the market for subprime backed securities, I would rebalance my portfolio and lean towards cash, unless you want to be risky and buy cheap now, which is an option depending on your aggressiveness. The current "crash" is attributed to many investors basing their investments on past performance as well as being naive. This is due to misinformation and lack of information, which is why managed money is generally a "safer" bet.

You're not taking advantage of compounding interest. Besides, when your parents die, depending on the investment vehicle they've set up, you may be hit with a horrible probate and pretty excessive inheritance tax.

My parents are very well of, and I could have the exam same attitude as you. I could very easily retire when my parents die and have enough money for my grandkids as well.

However, if that's the mentality that I live with every day, how can I feel worthwhile, let alone deserving of any of the money that I have?
