#5: VFIAX Vanguard Fund SP500 Fund
Cost: 0.04% Expense Ratio
Minimum: $3000 Investment
Alternative ETF: VOO – 0.03% Expense Ratio
This is a Vanguard Index Fund that follows the SP500, which is the top 500 publicly traded companies in the United States. Buying this ONE index fund is basically the equivalent of buying all 500 of the largest companies in the US, and you’ll get access to some of the bigwigs like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and so on.
#4: VTSAX Vanguard Fund Total Stock Market
Cost: 0.04% Expense Ratio
Minimum: $3000 Investment
Alternative ETF: VTI
What makes this so unique is that it encompasses the ENTIRE US stock market in ONE single fund…like, this is EVERYTHING. If there’s a small cap, medium cap, or large cap stock in any industry you can think of – this index fund has a tiny piece of it…and for one low price, you can get exposure to 3,529 stocks…
#3: SWPPX Charles Schwab SP500 Fund Fund
Cost: 0.02% Expense Ratio
This index fund was started in 1997 and it ALSO follows the SP500.
#3 (Tied): SWTSX Charles Schwab Fund
Cost: 0.02% Expense Ratio
This encompasses the entire US stock market index, similar to VTSAX.
#2: FXIAX Fidelity Fund Total Stock Market Fund
This is Fidelity’s version of the SP500 index fund with NO EXPENSE RATIO and NO MINIMUMS.
#2 (Tied): FZILX Fidelity International Stock Market Fund
This is, in my opinion, a GOOD index fund for everyone to at least get in on – because an international index fund will cover foreign and emerging markets that COULD perform very well over the next few decades. Now, it is true that – Historically, the SP500 has been a better investment than international stocks – but that might not ALWAYS be the case, especially as other markets are REALLY ramping up production and consumption. It also gives you a little more diversification OUTSIDE the United States – just in case, you never know.
#1: FZROX Fidelity Total Stock Market Fund
Unlike Vanguard, which has a 0.04% expense ratio – this one has NO EXPENSE RATIO. It’s TOTALLY FREE.
#1 (Tied): FNILX Fidelity SP500 Index Fund
Apparently, they couldn’t just say this is the SP500 because they’d have to pay fees to license that name…but hey, call it whatever you want if that means they can pass the savings on to the customer. With this, you’ll get the same SP500 index fund with no minimums and no fees…so, there you go, that’s a win for this fund.
So between everything I just mentioned, you should be able to find the PERFECT index fund to invest in – index funds within Vanguard certainly have the name recognition behind them, but others like Charles Schwab and Fidelity are cutting fees in an effort to get you to buy theirs, instead. Either way, this is GOOD for you – because now, you get to save more money.
Seriously, if all you did was just buy a total stock market index fund every month and nothing else – over 20 years, you would out perform the VAST majority of hedge fund managers, and you’d put yourself in a GREAT financial position to make as much money as possible. Investing doesn’t need to be complicated, and it doesn’t need to be expensive, either…any of these index funds I mentioned would be a great choice, and I hope this is helpful to maximize the value of every dollar possible.

How does fidelity plan to stay in biddness??🤔🙄😉
Ah, fidelity is paying the bait and gank angle. I'll pass
Do all funds go up, and will still be up when I need it?
FYI, u need to put money into the funds. Takes long time and effort.
Love the breakdown. I've gradually built my finance and made my first $100k through investing. With what I’ve learned in the market, given enough time, all I can say is that nothing beats expertise when it comes to managing one's finances.
My uncle has lost over a million gambling, my dad has lost over $100k gambling and my Dad's friend has lost over $300k gambling. Gambling is definitely an addiction..
Graham, as far as I can tell.. each of these funds are currently C-rated… and since they follow the S&P they are all down significantly YTD [year to date]. Many large cap fund leaders /hedge fund managers are concerned we still have plenty of downside left in this bear market. So, I wouldn't want many of your followers with just $100,000 or less to jump into these when they may continue to downtrend. There WILL be a great time to allocate IN to any or all of these funds – but I'd wait until the market signals are more bullish since many of your followers might not have the capitalization to fund a lot of downside [and who wants to watch their balance go down no matter how much money you have? Nobody!]
Money with Free index funds can’t be moved to other market accounts….fidelity to vanguard to Schwab can’t be done
With inflation currently at about 10%, my primary concern is how to grow my reserve of $240k which has been sitting duck since forever with zero to no gains, sure I'm all in on the long term game, but with my savings are lying waste to inflation and my portfolio losing gains everyday, I need a remedy asap
@3:17 "…because otherwise, I'm going to be sad" D E B T & F I R E
What I do is invest into ETFs and blue chip stocks but I like to focus on ETFs that mirror the performance of a major index like the S&P 500 for good ROI monthly and long term
I'm new to all this, which is the best ETF ?
I put $1000 into Invesco s&p 500 high didvend low volatility, it's an Etf I don't touch it or trade it I olan to keep added ingredients money and use it as savings to buy my first house. My question is should I keep investing into an etf or switch it to one of your index funds
Warren Buffett once said, "if you don't find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you are dead", I started my investments and retirement immediately, but I was new, so I decided to use the services of Suzanne Stephens Ellis a licensed stockbroker recommended to me by my husband. I make so much profit trading with her. You too can make profit. It is never too late to a retirement plan.
I invested about $250k some years back into ETFs which makes me about $20k monthly ROI still the best way to build up
If you like to leave drip off half your investments do inexpensive funds allow you to take dividends
The stock market has been a really tough one this past months, but I watched an interview on CNBC where the anchor ‘Jim Cramer’ kept mentioning "…KARINA MATTIS…". This prompted me to get in touch with her, and from October 2021 till now we have been working together, and I can now boast of $540k in my trading portfolio.
is FSKAX good?
Do you need invest in all five or one since they all do the same it seem like?
