Bill Gates can buy any car he wants — but maybe Elon Musk should care it's a Porsche and not a Tesla (TSLA, MSFT)

Bill Gates recently said he'd bought an all-electric Porsche Taycan, prompting Tesla CEO Elon Musk to characterize his billionaire-on-billionaire interactions with the Microsoft co-founder as "underwhelming." Gates can buy any car he wants — and he has a track record for favoring Porsches.

The Best Mutual Funds

Mutual funds can be an option if you’re looking for actively managed funds that are low risk and fairly diversified. When compared to index funds, though, there’s a clear winner. With mutual funds, you have to pay a higher expense fee. That’s because the fund is actively managed by fund managers. But with index funds, the fees are much lower because those funds track an index like the S&P 500. Also index funds regularly outperform actively managed funds.
