Looking at the 5-year graph there was one very big dip in the S&P 500 level.  When was it and what do you suppose caused it?
Pick one of the top three index funds from the Investopedia site (and tell me which you chose).  If you had $1,000 for a year in your choice, how much would the fees cost you to the nearest penny?  (Use the expense ratio, and know the fees are subtracted from your account automatically.)
Rank mutual funds, index funds and ETF’s from most-favored to least-favored in accordance with the video which compares and contrasts them.  (Dr. Stewart agrees with the rankings suggested by the video.)
SEC graph interpretation:  The account starts with $100,000 and climbs to somewhere between about $179,000 and $208,000.  So depending on the fees, the money could double.  How much money is the investor personally adding to the account during those 20 years?

An investor tries to convince you to follow his new investing model, called “Damn the Torpedoes.”  In this model, investors play it more safely while nurturing their small nest eggs (small investment account balances), and then take on more risk as the account grows and more risk can be afforded.  After all, accounts with higher balances can afford to take bigger risks.  Sounds good, right?  Explain why taking on higher levels of risk later is equivalent to taking on higher levels of risk in the beginning instead.
