HELP! The Foolish advice is to pay off all debts before investing. BUT--what if you've already started investing and your investments are returning much higher than any debts interest rate?
Here's the scenario:
1. Credit Card w/$9000 bal. @ 5.9% (just lowered thanks to the Fools)
2. Student Loan w/15000 bal. @ 8.25%
3. Car Loan @ 6.95%
4. Stocks worth just over 19,000 with a return of over 227% over the last 2.5 years (WalMart)
Here's the question to the Foolish from the foolish
Do I sell my stock now and pay off credit card and large chunk of student loan? Or do I keep chipping away at the debt and hope my stock keeps performing like it has with hope it will surpass my entire debt?
