Roshawn Watson presents NEXT WEEK: WATSON INC EXCLUSIVE Interview with Van... posted at Watson Inc, saying, "In the long run, the price differences generally save individual investors tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. ETFs are often tax-efficient as well. Also, consider the fact that one would need between 20-50 individual stocks to be adequately diversified compared to just 1 ETF (i.e. VTI)...Everyone's investment plan must be tailored to his or her's own financial goals. However, one generally starts investing in pretax vehicles, such as (401K, 403b, Thrift Savings Plans, or Traditional IRA). If your company matches your contribution (for 401K, 403b, or TSP), I would contribute up until the match. Do not throw away free money!"
