VMFXX.... my e-trade savings is paying 3.25% and I like being able to immediately transfer it to the broker-side in case I want to buy. but VMFXX as everyone knows pays noticeably more so i'nm thinking of moving a healthy chunk into that while I wait - heck, 4.2% is hardly a torturous wait. I have NO intention of doing this but I gotta ask.....

Looking at their website on this fund: The Record-Date is let's say... 12/30/22. The distribution payable date just says after - 1/3/23 this is consistent. I gotta believe it's not that simple - wouldn't people just put their money in a few days before record date, and cash out after distribution - if they wanted to be cute? Again my wish is to just park money there, until and unless "test the new lows" happens, or close. But I just got curious - why wouldn't people just do that for 1 week a money to get paid?

MM funds pay out dividend distributions based on your days in the fund. You can’t pull that trick.

If you sell before the end of the month you’ll be paid dividends immediately up to that date. If you buy during the month you’ll be paid a smaller amount than you would be for a whole month like a bank savings account does.

Ok thanks so it's pro-rated . I guess I was equating it to the storm-chasers (I've read about people who just buy shares a day before DIV-EX....then sell....and figure they collected a freebie...I never understood it because many times, shares in high dividend stocks go down right afterward)....but yes this is MM not shares. Thanks I should have thought of that.

You are absolutely correct, as usual. In addition, since MM rates can change frequently during a month, it's hard to know exactly how much you'll make in any given month. (If you really care to try and calculate it that close.)

Ally savings has been paying 3.3% APY since Dec 16th, so old news and not very impressive.

Over the past holiday weekend, Schwab only had one brokered CD available... This morning most maturities are available again (as we expected) They are still inverted (example, 1yr is 4.35% and 5 is only 3.75%). Personally, I still expect rates to climb a little more (bit by bit) and to remain inverted, most of the year.

Deal Summary: 12-month CD, 6.00% APY, $10k minimum deposit, new money.
Availability: 19 Central Iowa counties
Advantage Credit Union (Advantage CU) is starting 2023 off with a “New Year Savings Spectacular” – a limited-time 12-month CD earning 6.00% APY.
(This is definitely a rate milestone: the last time I wrote about a 6% APY was 2008 and it was offered on a 60-month CD.)

I don’t think I’d move to Iowa for it though. 😏

NFCU is 4.4% for 1 year, and 4.2% for 2 years clear out to 7 years.

Add 5 basis points to the rate if $100,000 minimum.

Well the new year has commenced, and I am still patiently waiting for a non-callable 5% rate for 5 years. Crazy. Ha!

^^^^

5%+ is what many of us want... I think if JP raises rates another 1/2 point on ~Feb1 we will see it soon after. Just 1/4 and maybe not.

Of course 4.6 and 4.7 that we can get at Schwab today is pretty close.

5% + FDIC is what we want.

I wouldn't buy any CD's that are not insured by the FDIC. I don't recall even seeing any that were not covered.
