Don't forget a completion fund to catch the remainder of the total market!Neither is a particularly good investment. I would say if your goal is investing, just buy a mutual fund that matches the S&P 500 and call it a day.
Right now the S&P is officially in correction territory down 10.6% from it's high. The good new is it is still up almost 9% from a year ago.Ugh. That is so painful. Afraid to look at my actual investments, but I'm pretty sure that in the past 5 days they've lost, in total, more than the total purchase price of my RIV direct points.
No, you will not save thousands on DW trips buying DVC. You will end up spending a lot more than you planned.That thought popped into mind when it hit me how much Im spending to purchase DVC. I am clueless when it comes to day trading and buying stocks and let my expert retirement lady handle all of that stock stuff. And if I asked her id bet dollars to donuts that shed say buy the stocks.
The way I see it I will save thousands on DW trips buying DVC but I cant help but wonder about the stocks.
It's a great time to be happy about owning DVC. Right now, my DVC "investment" is dramatically outperforming the marketUgh. That is so painful. Afraid to look at my actual investments, but I'm pretty sure that in the past 5 days they've lost, in total, more than the total purchase price of my RIV direct points.
DVC is not an investment.A timeshare is not an investment. Stock is.
A timeshare is only a vehicle via which you pay cash up front to potentially save on accommodations in the future. And those accommodations are higher-end, so likely fail to represent savings over staying off-site or at a Value resort, and have a host of accompanying expenses (travel, food, tickets, etc.).
DVC is not an investment.
