Morningstar Moments: 3 Things You May Have Missed

Our analysts tweet about value stock picks, aftertax 401(k) contributions, and cryptocurrency education.

Here are the major market moments our analysts have been talking about.  

1) Bask Your Portfolio in the Value Stock Glow

Value's comeback has been a hot topic among our experts and investors. After a long-awaited moment in the spotlight, value stocks now have a bigger price tag. Data journalists Lauren Solberg and Jakir Hossain find names trading far below their Morningstar fair value estimates.

2) When One Door Closes, Another One Opens

The "backdoor Roth IRA" is what Christine Benz refers to as a "ritual" for high-income, heavy-saving investors to get their cash into a Roth IRA account when they have too much for a direct contribution. What happens when these investors max out their retirement accounts? Benz has an idea: aftertax 401(k) contributions.

3) Keeping Up With Cryptocurrency

The cryptocraze is not slowing down any time soon. Now that cryptoasset markets are rapidly growing, advisors may be struggling to keep up with their clients and the expanding crypto landscape. Have no fear, Tyrone Ross has you covered with the basics, resources, and more.
