Does Fidelity manage that or you personally?
Fidelity is through my employer.  I manage it myself, well my cousin's son with Thrivent drives it on my laptop.

I also have the option to get help from Fidelity, I can call or use the internet.  But, no one sitting in an office I can visit

Deleted my Facebook last night. I don't regret it one bit.

BTW I felt like abusing my body again, so I went to Popeyes for lunch. They have chocolate beignets. 0 out of 10, would not recommend.

I like Popeye's plain old spicy fried chicken on the bone, but it's definitely hit or miss with them regarding quality, promptness, attention to detail, general give a crap-ness, etc.

I got some of the spicy fried chicken, as well as the spicy chicken sandwich again. The sandwich was meh this time, and I really liked it last time. 

The spicy chicken was pretty solid.

The biggest problem with Popeye's Spicy Chicken Sandwich, is that... it isn't one.  It's a chicken sandwich with spicy mayo.  Which is a whole lot less interesting to me.

The only difference between their regular chicken sandwich, and the spicy chicken sandwich, is the different mayo.

I think it could be pretty great if they used the same seasoned fry batter that they do for the bone-in spicy chicken, but I'm guessing the sandwich patties are prepared offsite and shipped to the franchises from some central location.

I had spicier chicken from the hot case at the local grocery store than I did at Popeye's.

Hmm, maybe the shitty ones are those people who "should" be working fast food and the quality ones are of those who "should" have better jobs, huh?

I don't buy and sell on a weekly basis, I might trade once or twice a month.

I have a plan that is based on allocations of stock types, and I try and stay with that plan.  If one stock type appreciates in price a lot, I start selling it, and vice versa.

Dry your eyes pumpkin maybe if some one was taught common sense at a tender age they'd realize most of the time good performance is tied to advancement.You do understand that you don't go to work for minimum wage one week and land on the Board of Directors of Amazon/Walmart the next?I worked at a GM Cleveland plant right out of H.S.,some segments thought that if they worked hard for a couple of months they were management material.Rather than reason what skills they needed to develop to get there

Thank You OBE WAN,problem is(with me at least based on unfamiliarity)  how to recognize those opportunities before 99% of the investors play me like a cheap violin.

I don't look for "opportunities" with few exceptions.  I look for balance.

For example, I have any funds I expect to need for five years in cash (equivalents).  So, to keep that I can't leave my portfolio alone, a year goes by and I need to replenish the cash.  The next five year period I have invested in "safe" stocks (the term is misleading a bit).  The next five years is in somewhat more speculative stocks (and ETFs).

After that I can afford to be somewhat more speculative, I own a good bit of Apple for example, Amazon, Google, etc.  The problem is that these stocks have run up which means I should be selling to rebalance my portfolio, and I did sell some Apple, a move I now regret obviously, but whatever, I was getting way too much Apple stock, and still have too much, I'm over 10%.  I wanted to stay under 4% with any single investment.

And of course I take out cash each year to pay bills etc.  So, my main focus is simply allocations.  I have been off my model for a while now but I still have a heavy portion of cash eq.

If you are younger, you should be more aggressive relative to how many years you have before retirement.

I wouldn't buy a single stock with a portfolio under $100 K, even half a mil you can do fine with ETFs.
