Okay, I'm very much a beginner and need some help.
Currently contribute 4% to my 401k, which is what my company will eventually match (150%).

Now that my income has increased, I'm trying to decide how best to invest a few extra hundred dollars per month. Additional contribution to the 401k? A new Roth IRA? Or, we have the option to participate in an Employee Stock Purchase Plan where a set amount per month is deducted from our paycheck - no fees, but not pre-tax.

Incidentally, I work for AOL-Time Warner.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
