So, what speculative investments are you guys favoring right now as we move into 2021?
Most of my investments are in Vanguard index funds (praise be to the VTSAX), but I'm thinking about dipping my toes into some riskier ventures, be they stocks, ETFs, crypto, or whatever! Couldn't hurt, right? I'm young with no debt, no kids, no major expenses. Might as well try to make some dosh, yeah? So, what do you guys have planned? Any big moves you plan on making in 2021 compared to last year?

Employee Retention Credit
Has anyone here received their employee retention credit? Any guidance on what to do if I haven't? I run a small business with a couple staff + myself. On my Q2 and Q3 Form 941 (haven't filed Q4 yet) I went through the retention credit worksheet and filled out the 941 appropriately, which resulted in an "Overpayment" of a significant amount. There are two checkboxes for Overpayment, one is "Apply to next return" and one is "Send a refund". I selected Send a refund on both quarters, but have received nothing. It is impossible to get the IRS on the phone whenever I've tried. I have read that Form 7200 can be used to claim these credits, but I don't want to fuck up and file that when I already asked for a Refund to be sent on Form 941. Any advice?

● Move over, Mukesh Ambani. Link in bio for more.⠀ ⠀ ● Zhong Shanshan is a private billionaire who’s rarely quoted in the press. Now, after an improbable career spanning journalism, mushroom farming and health care, he’s become Asia’s richest person, eclipsing India’s Mukesh Ambani and a group of Chinese tech titans including Jack Ma.⠀ ⠀ ● Zhong’s net worth has surged $70.9 billion this year to $77.8 billion, making him the 11th-richest person on the planet, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. It’s one of the fastest accumulations of wealth in history, and all the more remarkable considering that until this year he was little known outside of China.⠀ ⠀ ● Zhong, 66, isn’t involved in politics and his business interests aren’t entwined with other rich families such as the property tycoons, which is why he’s known locally as the “Lone Wolf.”⠀ ⠀

Decades ago, Pepsi promised Philippine soda drinkers a chance at a million pesos. Ads across the country in 1992 told people “You could be a millionaire.” The prize, about $68,000 in today’s dollars, would be awarded to lucky customers who collected soda bottle caps with the winning three-digit numbers printed on the underside. But an error at a bottling plant led to 600,000 winners — triggering a consumer uproar that would turn into a deadly fiasco. Read the full story, from our 2020 archive, at the link in bio.
