As apposed  to saving with IRA..

IRA is nicer to max out first generally since you will have more control over your investments and likely pay less fees over time (some 401k plans really stink when it comes to fees). but 401k has a higher overall contribution limit per year allowing you to put away more over time.

Exactly. So I stop contributing to 401k, Until I fill up IRA  limit. Where would you recommend opening IRA?

Ideally if you know you are going to save lets say $1000 per month and $5500 would go to your IRA you would want the other 6500 spread out over the year. Its harder (paperwork) with a lot of 401k plans to "turn them on and off" a couple times a year.

I know one company I worked at it was easy to do so maxing out the IRA first made sense to me and then with a couple clicks online I could direct more to the 401k. Another company I worked for would have been a bigger hassle to do it that way.

You can open up your IRA with any company, If you plan on actively trading stocks then make sure to look into trading fees. Fidelity, Schwab, vanguard, etrade, they all work you just have to find something that you like. I use fidelity, although I don't trade very often and I really like their cash management account (checking).

Yup my 401k fund options stink. I can adjust my contributions online so I don't have to worry about that.
However, since my employer offers a 401k. I believe there are conditions to a deductible IRA. My AGI must be under x amount, I don't know the exact number but with my pass through LLC (rental income) I believe I exceed that limit. Anyway around this?

I don't know for sure. You can google to see what your MAGI needs to be under. remember contributions will lower your MAGI.

You may just want to contribute to 401k and then at tax time you can tell your accountant to see if you can make a contribution to the previous year.

I have heard Kevin O'leary talking about buying corporate debt because it pays a better dividend.  Is there a fund or ETF that I can look at for this?

SPDR is just a name of a company that creates and manages ETF's.
Others include Barclays and Vanguard.
Live forever or die trying.

Thank you. I tried SPDR, and fidelity four in one (which is a mutual fund). In your experience, which company is the best bang for the buck?

If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.

More like future contracts, ETF's that mimic crude prices, options on ETFs etc.

I was just pulling your leg:)

I'd also look into stocks of oil-based companies that are currently undervalued due to their ties to CO. Curious what others around here think

IF you can handle high risk, look into UWTI which is 3x leveraged bullish in oil.
It's a bit complicated how it works so research before buying.
