Ep 32: Q&A | Answering All YOUR Questions (keep 'em coming)

We're back, we had to take a week off because, if you didn't know, Jess is the sun and Jessie is the moon - we had to eclipse. 🌚🌞

First, a quick market update for April 11, 2024 about CPI and PPI!

Then we get to allllll your questions, yes, even questions from our very early episodes (told ya we'd get to them eventually 😅).

Questions we answer in this episode:

  1. @lukodaian asked - can you please explain Dow [indice] points, S&P 500 points, and how they are calculated? what does it really mean?
  2. @beyza asked a question from our last Episode (31) on CD Ladders - When you say the rates are annual, looking at 5.35% for 3 month period, does that mean i will be getting 5.35% at the end of that period or will it actually be less?
  3. @tinaremlinger asked - I would like to know how I go about gifting stocks or buying stocks for my children.
  4. Jane Smith Carson asked about Portfolio diversification! Should I diversify by sector? How do I add bonds in my brokerage account? Are Bond ETFs a good idea? Also she asked Jess what her favorite Taylor Swift song and album is 🙃
  5. Mags asked - I’ve seen discourse about how BlackRock, Vanguard, State Street, etc. have too much market share! I would love to hear thoughts. And the best ways for young adults to build wealth, should we use AI investors, and is Social Security dead?

We help educate you on how the stock market works, so that you can make informed decisions on what to do with your money. Keep the questions coming! 💙💜
