    Financial Knowledge All Adults Should Know?

    @Astronuc I agree with the comments related to your post. Being a Fiduciary is not going to make them a stock picker. Also even with a "smart" money investment house like "Golden Sacs", a 7 figure account puts you way down the line in service levels. The impact of paying 1-2% of your total...

    The flowchart shows 67.5 Rejected Energy.

    I certainly go along with investing a little versus not building a safety fund. I do think people should have some savings to cover unexpected expenses. You should at least be able to fix a transmission or replace an A/C unit without having to sell stocks.

    The 3 to 9 months is guideline, personally I ran much lower savings when I was younger. In my 50's I had about months 15, then boom the company offers a severance program and I retired.

    Sadly, Cox will not replace existing cabling in the house for free. At least here in Phoenix, you can save a lot, by switching your TV provider ever couple years. Sad to say, but both DirectTV and Cox treat new customers better than existing customers. Unfortunately, Cox is the only "decent"...

    My opinion, a beginning investor should write down why they made each purchase. When you sell or ever year, look at the why’s. Use this as tool, to judge if your “whys” are good or bad, or at least if you’re investing on feeling or thinking. Before investing, you should build up 3 to 9 months...
