Sinonseicedge : I recently had a bill from my web design company who also host my website on a shared server. It's an ecommerce site with on average about 100 visits a day. I refused to pay for a whole year as it seemed way too much at £600 ($981) annually.(I know)
I therefore want to change to hosting it by myself as I suspect they're reselling the hosting to me for a ridiculous markup. The woman in charge is really a pain in the **** and I know she's going to make it difficult for me so any advice would be appreciated.
The site uses cubecart, but I can't access any of the coding or have any technical knowledge to move it to a new hosting provider.

acaloRagflurl : Paying $1000 for hosting your site on a shared or even reseller account is too high. I suggest you choose a hosting company like Host Gator or Blue Host for your hosting needs.
There are not only reliable hosting companies but they have a good customer support.

LoonryAnync : Fill out the FAFSA and it will tell you how much you can get. It is totally free to fill out so it can't hurt even if you get nothing. Also student loans are nice because you don't have to start paying them back until 6 months after you graduate. Be careful for how much money you accept though, because you do eventually have to pay them back. I always just accept the bare minimum for tuition and books. And so far I only have about $3,000 in student loans whearas I think the national average is $30,000. But just first start out applying for a pell grant and then get the loan for what it doesn't cover.

Poendypyday : The petty cash fund started with $400. Since $277.47 was spent out of the fund, there should be 400 - 277.47 = $122.53 remaining. Intstead, the information given shows that there is only $120.42 remaining. So the fund is 122.53 - 120.42 = $2.11 short (debit). To reimburse the fund the entry would be:

Dr Delivery Expense 20.00
Dr Mileage Expense 68.00
Dr Postage Expense 61.95
Dr Merchandise Inventory 45.60
Dr Office Supplies Expense 81.92
Dr Over/Short 2.11
Cr Cash 279.58

*Notice that the office supplies purchased on the 5th and 20th were "immediately used". So they should have gone to the "Office Supplies Expense" account.

rafaelcnilssono : I'm considering getting into stocks and buying some, but I'm not sure how it all exactly works. Does anybody have any outlook on this matter? And what companies are best to invest in right now?

NitengekGen : Go to one of the in town investment firms where you live. You'll have to pay for the advise but it's better than blundering around on your own. If you prefer not to go to an investment firm, then stick to mutual funds.

vitalykim : There is a large group of people, collectively referred to as "the market", who offer to buy or sell stocks at the price they think is the right price.

They choose that price based on expectations of risk and return. If a stock is expected to be a safe stock, people will accept a low return. If a stock is expected to be a risky stock, people will expect a higher return to take that risk.

Expected return is the price you think a stock will be in the future minus the price you pay for it now. You offer a price that you think will give a return in line with the risk.

You can choose how much risk you want to take: high risk/high return, or low risk/low return, or anything in between. Everyone agrees on that (it is called the CAPM model, and the inventors of it won the Nobel prize).

Some investors (called value investors) think they can find stocks that are underpriced for what the "real" expected future value and risk. Everyone else thinks that it should be a certain price now based on the expected future value and expected risk, but value investors find the stocks that will have a higher value than what everyone else expects.

This is why you can't just find a company that has a hot future. People are already basing the current price on the expectation that the stock has a hot future.

Please remember that when you think you can find a stock that is a better value than everyone else thinks, you're competing against a market full of people with advanced degrees in finance and economics, who didn't get their start from Yahoo answers.

If you want to invest, don't try picking stocks. You're not going to do it better than the people you're competing against, and you'll probably do worse.

Choose your risk level, and then buy a mutual fund that matches it. Even better, go with the people who believe that nobody can pick stocks better than the market, so why pay them to try (mutual funds charge a management fee for their services, which comes out of your return). They would suggest that you buy an index fund. Invest in the market as a whole rather than trying to pick stocks that are values for their risk, since nobody can.

alleseeappell : If you have a valid QDRO, submit it to the pension plan administrator. That way your spouse gets the 1099-R in their name, not yours.
