Investing and retirement

Worried about mom

Keith is worried about his mom's savings and investments. Dave doesn't think there's a reason for concern. He believes she can go ahead and pay off her mortgage, too.

Invest now?

Should Rahm invest in the stock market when he'll be returning to his home country in a few years? Dave has some good information and sound investing advice for him.

That's a lot!

Kristi's employer takes a mandatory 20 percent out of her paychecks for retirement. What does Dave think of this practice?

More than one?

Brian asks Dave if it's possible to open more than one Roth IRA account. Dave explains that it is, and he gives Brian a little more information about the Roth IRA.

Well done, sir!

John plans on retiring this year, and he asks Dave for advice on his investment portfolio. Listen as they discuss John's accomplishments, the market, and Dave's investing philosophy.

No commodities

Don asks Dave if he recommends having gold or silver as part of an investment portfolio. Dave explains that gold and silver are commodities, and that he doesn't recommend commodities for investment purposes.

No retirement cash at 58

Dan is 58, and he has nothing set aside for retirement. He and his wife also have almost $40,000 in debt. Dan asks Dave if they should skip paying off debt, and go straight to saving and investing for retirement. Dave explains why that's not the best idea.

Investing comparison

Levi is looking for advice about investing in the stock market and mutual funds versus real estate. Dave explains the types of income generated by each, and the benefits and drawbacks of the two. It's one of Dave's best moments as a teacher.
