To start investing, it’s always best to start dollar-cost averaging into a S& P Total Market Index, or S&P 500 index?


The s&p isnt making any money

If u had 125.000 to invest what would b the safest way to invest without losing any money?

I’ve got money invested into Fidelity now but I took it out of the stock mkt & put it on a holding pattern because the market wasn’t doing so well. So anyway it’s just sitting there making no interest.

I recommend starting with this article:…/?aff_sub2=investing. It has some good information and links to other articles that go more in depth. How you invest will depend greatly on how comfortable or uncomfortable you are with taking risks.

Forget It.

I d k that is why I’m asking you? What can I invest in where can earn about 8% interest on the money I’ve got in Fidelity.

I’d like to join in here and say this - never rely on random people to make money. Yes, there are success stories. Does that mean it’s a guarantee? Absolutely not. There is no gimmick to guarantee an 8% APY investment.

If you want to invest and you don’t want to keep an eye on it, I suggest CocaCola ($KO). Why do I suggest CocaCola? Well, they offer a really nice dividend with a yield of 3.15% at the moment. However, please understand this is dependent on the current price of the stock price. If you aren’t familiar with dividend investing, I suggest looking into it more in-depth. If you’re curious about how effective this method is, look into DRIP (dividend reinvestment program). Also, dividend investing is considered “boomer investing” by some. It’s not nearly as risky as options, but I would not touch those unless you have a year or two of involvement with the market.

Here’s the history of CocaCola’s dividend payouts.…/ko/dividend-history
