Have you looked at an S&P 500 fund?

IDK if Robinhood offers, but a CD ladder or a Treasury ladder are both safe with decent returns (especially in a ROTH IRA)

Robinhood doesnít offer IRAs or Roth IRAs yet.

Is there any reason to use Robinhood over Fidelity, Schwab, or TDAmeritrade (owned by Schwab but currently a totally different platform)?

IBKR is IMHO in a league of its own, with certain advantages and disadvantages.

wouldn't doing treasury ladders in a Roth lose the tax advantage?

That's almost like saying "wouldn't living in Florida lose the tax advantage of a Roth".

Well... Yes. Living in Florida would definitely lower the incentive to invest in a Roth account. Roths  come with limitations and the benefits are meant to offset those.

So help me understand: it's better to hold an investment in a fully taxable account than to hold the same investment in one that isn't subject to US Income Tax?

https://thefrugalexpat.com/spy-vs-voo/

Seems like VOO has a slight performance edge due to lower cost, while SPY is more popular with more options and liquidity.

They are essentially the same thing being sold by two different companies.

The only real difference is that SPY takes a (tiny) bit more of a cut as a payment for their services.

Here's an opinion. You never know what's going to happen with those, the entire price movement is senseless. So if it were me I'd try to avoid holding, and take whatever gains come along in the short term (or get out quickly when the rally goes south)

I do not expect a buyout anytime soon due to the hiring they recently did. They seem to actually want to be the ones to commercialize.

The recent runup is probably because they sold some rights for $100M. Companies like these struggle to keep cash flows positive and often resort to selling more shares, which hurts existing shareholders. Not diluting shares makes them more valuable

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this or not, but I can't think of where else I should ask (except maybe here) so here goes...

I'm trying to figure out which of my appreciated stocks to donate to my Donor Advised Fund.

Stock A - ~$10k in unrealized gains, ~336% gain, current value - ~$13k
Stock B - ~$10k in unrealized gains, ~87% gain, current value - ~$19.6k

Is there an advantage of donating one over the other (other than the obvious benefit of stock B giving me a bigger deduction)?

I feel like there should be something about the unrealized gains I'm giving up, but I can't wrap my head around exactly what.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ETA: I plan on replenishing whichever one I donate, so there's no issue of a position I want to exit.
