You just had a baby? Congratulations! How do you come up with a financial plan for a baby?
You can start by checking out an interest compounding calculator. I chose this one today only because it came up in a search. You can pick numbers that make sense to you, but the important thing is to create a plan and a goal. (more…)
Knowing when to sell an investment in a stock or fund can be harder than knowing when to buy. The reason is because selling has so many of its own rules and rationalizations to consider. For example:
The type of investment account is a major consideration. Is it a 401(k) that has a limited number of investments to choose from? Is it a Roth IRA with no taxes on gains? Is it an individual account subject to short-term or long-term capital gains taxes? How much will you pay in fees by selling?
Was the Twitter IPO a big success? I guess that would depend upon who you ask.
As we know, the figures show a whopping 72.69% gain today with a “previous close” of $26 and a high for the day of over $50, but CNN Money shows today’s opening price as $45.10 and closing price as $44.90. So, if you were a member of the general public buying this stock today, you probably lost money; possibly a big loss.
Interestingly enough, institutional investors seem to be saying that the Twitter IPO will not be the debacle that the Facebook IPO was for early investors, and that in fact the stock might be undervalued and positioned as a legitimate buy. Personally, I don’t plan to buy it because I don’t know how they make (or plan to make) their money and because given the state of the economy I think it is particularly speculative to buy into a company that makes something that is so entirely non-essential to anybody.
One of the great things about WordPress is how easy it is to create photo galleries.
The first thing to do is look at Settings > Media and make sure you are happy with the image sizes that are specified there.
While adding or editing a page or post, click the Add An Image icon. If you use the Flash Uploader, you will see that you can select multiple files. The images for your gallery can be in multiple folders or all in one folder.
In the HTML editor, you can add the shortcode
[gallery] anywhere in your post or page. In Visual mode, there is an Insert Gallery button.
