:laugh:Uh, what is AKER, and should this be on Tinder or Ashley Madison or something?
( Spoken as a married old fart who is ignorant of such things... )
I concur 100%, however individual stocks only comprise about 3.25% of my entire ROTH portfolio (most of which is invested in growth mutual funds)...the key benefit of having a few stocks in a Roth IRA stems from the fact that any and all gains on the assets within the account are completely 100% tax free! (even when you withdraw them i.e. after age 59 & 1/2)You're actively investing IRA funds into individual companies??? Thats... risky.
I'll stick with my target-date index-based mutual funds for my retirement accounts.
I do have a taxable brokerage account where I have played with a few specific stocks -- and a leveraged mutual fund; but even then, most of my brokerage assets are in index-based mutual funds.
I guess time will tell who wins. But I've always believed that diversification is the key to managing risk... And index funds do a superior job of diversification when compared to purchasing individual stocks. Index funds also help reduce trading costs.
hmmmmm, AMD looks too risky for me....:crying2:AMD is looking good. Will add more AKER under 0.25
