March Money Madness

Let's look at some of the underdogs, top seeds, and a cinderella story for March Money Madness.

Underdogs:

  1. Health Savings Account: The Health Savings Account (HSA) is one of least understood and most underutilized investment accounts. It's also the only tax-free account that exists. You are able to contribute money that is tax-deferred, which can then be invested, and used tax-free at a later date for qualified medical expenses.

  2. 9-5: Too many people are focused on side-hustles instead of earning more at their 9-5 job. A 9-5 job can be a great way to build wealth if you are consistently a top performer, ask for more, and are willing to leave for a better opportunity.


Top Seeds:


  1. Paying off Credit Card Debt: You will never find a better guaranteed investment than paying off credit card debt. The financial and emotional benefits are tremendous.

  2. Roth IRA: Everyone loves the idea of growing their money without having to think about paying taxes in the future. I am also a huge fan of this account; however, like most number one seeds, it could easily be upset by a tax-deferred account (e.g., 401(k)) in any given year depending on future tax brackets and earnings. In other words, if are currently in a 24% tax bracket and wind up in a 12% bracket in retirement, then the tax-deferred account, such as your 401(k), will likely be superior to the Roth.


Cinderella Story:


  1. Crypto: The Cinderella story of 2024 has to be crypto. The approval of Bitcoin Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), coupled with rumors of a similar one for Ethereum (ETH), has resulted in huge gains throughout the market. Bitcoin is up 55%, ETH has improved 53%, and the original favorite memecoin, DOGE, is up 61% this year.
