What do you think of municipal bonds vs. TIPS vs. total bond funds? I assume municipal bonds are safer than foreign bonds and are also federal tax free?

What do you think about using Schwab ?? Anyone ?

Why do you choose long term bond fund (as opposed to intermediate or short term) during an environment of rising interest rates?

Hi nate, Great video, i dont think that vanguard is available in Europe i have been looking at a particular ETF from blackrock ticker symbol IWDA, what are your thoughts?
salv236 (1 month ago)
irondg thanks, i found out over 1 month ago that degiro offers vanguard ive bought into the etf so far so good ☺️
irondg (1 month ago)
You can use a stockbroker like Degiro to buy Vanguard's ETF's if its not not available in your country.
David Carmosino (4 months ago)
Hi. Why do you prefer ETFs over individual stock picking? Would you ever buy a blue chip stock?
salv236 (4 months ago)
Thanks for sharing your input on ETFs, I wanted your opinion on the ETFs from.blackrock that tracks the s&p

Ok So? After your video the VOO started dropping big, did you sold it already or are you still in?
Nate O'Brien (28 days ago)
Spot on Anthony
Anthony Perez (28 days ago)
Funny. Looking at it now and it is doing fine. This is why you can't time the market.
Nate O'Brien (6 months ago)
I won't sell VOO for another 30-40 years

samurai7411 (6 months ago)
What platform do you use?
Nate O'Brien (6 months ago)
I use Vanguard!!!
Yusuf Sagri (6 months ago)
Good insight, I enjoyed. what is considered a good diversification? 5ETFs is too much. Let's say I were to go use the 5ETFs as a guideline then how would I allocate my investment of $100 (as an example) .?
Ermir Pjetri (7 months ago)
Great video, lots of good choices. Do you recommend voo over voog?
Canine 7 (7 months ago)
Would you still by etfs including Voo at these record highs or is it better to wait.
Nate O'Brien (7 months ago)
I use dollar cost averaging. It is extremely difficult to time the markets. Some people avoided stocks in 2016 because the markets were at all time highs. Those people missed out on double digit returns!
Ron Wiebe (7 months ago)
Hi - what are your qualifications to give financial advice - Just wondering
Nate O'Brien (7 months ago)
I would have asked the same question. It's imperative to understand that I'm not giving financial advice but rather sharing investing ideas with anyone and everyone who shares a passion for taking control of their financial future. I create these videos to provide ideas and share my opinions with the world in the hopes that it will help someone. Nothing makes me special. I am not a genius. I have a passion for investing and I welcome you to this channel! Kind regards, Nate
Jonathan Hadsipantelis (7 months ago)
Good video Nate, what's your allocation between actually picking stocks and buying ETFs?
Mike fortrump (8 months ago)
Choose 10 Vanguard funds, invest 10% in each fund, use all future dividends and contributions to rebalance. Rebalance weekly. Commissions are free so rebalancing is not a problem.
Sujatha Alluri (8 months ago)
How many shares do you recommend to buy in etf
King Kong (4 months ago)
Sujatha Alluri One is good .
Tommy (8 months ago)
Short term bonds are less volatile then long term... Long term bonds still go up and down a lot, and theyse etfs pay larger dividends. Warren buffet recommends short term bonds, I would love someones input on this

Best commodity ETF?
Adam Dyer (8 months ago)
Also I am very skeptical of GEs come back. They destroyed shareholder value by poor management decisions of excessive company buy backs at above Book value.
Adam Dyer (8 months ago)
Why not SDS or SH? ETFs that short the s&p 500. S&p fell 2% last week. I’m sure around March or April we are going to experience another correction.

Look into Ray Dalio's Risk Parity portfolio design. Titled the "All Weather Fund" as it groups its assets in 4 baskets that cover every economic cycle. By balancing risk and not dollar amount, 1 of the economic risk basket may be down, buoyed up by the other 3 baskets. Think this portfolio went down like 3 or 4% during the 2008 crash, loss even less taking dividends into consideration.

How do get Vanguard account what's the cost?? Year
Agustin Jimenez (8 months ago)
Great video. Question: I have a Vanguard brokerage account and I just recently opened an IRA account with Vanguard. Should all investments be in an IRA account, both IRA and regular investing brokerage account or what would be the most tax efficient way to invest?
Al Rocky (2 months ago)
You generally want to max out your IRA @ $5,500 a year before you consider opening a taxable account. You want tax efficient investments in your taxable account, ones that doesn't spit out a lot of dividends and short term capital gains.
Scott Dreyfus (8 months ago)
I like $VOOG better than $VOO. Take a look at $ARKW although it is not a Vanguard fund. It is on a tear.
Calvin Sun (8 months ago)
What do you think will happen to the wynn stock?
Dividend Driven (8 months ago)
Vanguard ETF’s are great investments!
Roman Hernandez (8 months ago)
Are any of these monthly dividends?
Tyrell McCollin (8 months ago)
What you think about eps..wisdom tree
Tommy (8 months ago)
I also own BLV, but that graph seems off. It was up around 7 percent last year, and from my research long maturity dates in bonds are usually the more volatile ones. Short term bonds are less volatile, and better to offset the portfolio
Erik Moore (8 months ago)
Your channel's growth is impressive, Nate. Keep it up! You've got what it takes to go big.

agreed robinhood sounds shady
King Kong (4 months ago)
Nate O'Brien (9 months ago)
Don't get me wrong, Robinhood is great, they are insured by the SIPC but I still feel better investing my money with one of the best financial institutions in the world.... Vanguard!
Stay True Warriors (9 months ago)
I like your background ;) Great info. Thanks Nate!
Nate O'Brien (9 months ago)
Haha thanks Lena!
Tc Linn (9 months ago)
Hi Nate, another cool and actionable video! My $0.02, I am more keen on VTI in lieu of VOO. VTI has broader swath of small/medium/large capitalized stocks; therefore, probably slightly lower risk than VOO. It has the same expense ratio as VOO at 0.04%. The long term performance is very similar.
Ivan Santana (9 months ago)
Hi Nate, I am a bit overwhelmed but excited each day to learn new ways to make my money work! But I have checked out websites too like: Wealthfront, Scwhab, and Betterment; Which one is more convenient for a starters? And thanks for your contents, your videos really do help me learn more about what to do with money 👍🏼💲

I personally have Vanguard Institutional Index! Good increase for me so far. I agree with the financial adviser bit as well. Plus you know what they say, Nobody is going to care about your money more than you. Good video Nate!

Smh such an old school mentality crypto is where it is at. Don't waste your time with this bullshit you could have bought and hodl on ethereum and done better than all these.
Brian Bliss (9 months ago)
I love the Vanguard ETFs, although I have a few through different providers that have provided hefty returns. They are easy diversification which is nice! Also, thanks for adding me into the FB group man.
Nate O'Brien (9 months ago)

Thanks man, learning from you with the polo 👊
Luevert Stapleton (9 months ago)
I wasn't thinking about investing in the Vanguard Long Term Bond ETF until I listened to this video. I need an ETF that would cushion me just in case something happens. It doesn't necessarily mean that something will happen. I'm just trying to prepare for the future.
Nate O'Brien (9 months ago)
I will be releasing a video this week on how to prepare your investments for a recession! Make sure you turn on post notifications for this one! You won't be disappointed! Thanks so much for the support!

Love the videos nate! Really helping me out as a beginner stock market user. Keep being you!
Nate O'Brien (9 months ago)
Hey Jake thanks so much for that thoughtful comment!
TOTALRESISTANCE1 (9 months ago)
Why do you invest in such a large number of ETFs? They are soo diversified in the first place do you really need more than one? Seems like a bit too much. When does it go from balancing a portfolio to spreading your money too thin over everything possible?
Boo Radley (9 months ago)
Digging the background on this one 👌 Love your videos! Thanks for sharing the knowledge.
Nate O'Brien (9 months ago)

A tip, if you want dividends to reinvest in your account. Make sure it's reinvesting in settings...I assumed mine auto did and didn't.
Nate O'Brien (9 months ago)
Very true! Thanks for sharing! I love dividend reinvestment programs (DRIP)
Eduardo Cervantes (9 months ago)

Thanks Eduardo! It means a lot to me!

What % of your portfolio is in etf? Do you invest in cryptocurrency?
Nate O'Brien (9 months ago)
I keep ETFs to about 10-20 of my portfolio. Most of my investments are in individual stocks. Bought BTC a few times, first time at $3.600 but I only invested a few hundred dollars. For the most part I stay away from cryptocurrencies.
CyborgOwls (9 months ago)
Nice video. Just wondering, what do you think of VF corporation right now?

Oops! Thanks so much for correcting me! I definitely meant to say 0.04%!!!!!!!

ETF’s are the best way to go. Vanguard and Schwab are really the only ones I look at because of their fees
ErikisOfficial (4 months ago)
Nate O'Brien what do you think of Schwabs 1000 index?

I totally agree, almost entirely passive!
