  • I would add it to my current portfolio, and buy more shares in the Coles/Myer corporation.
  • I'll buy more shares with the USCS (United States Cooperation Systems). But I wouldn't put it in right now. Stocks have fallen over 300 pts. over the past 2 two days, and is expected to fall again.
  • walmart
  • Microsoft
  • One of the stocks my dad owns...ITT Though they just lost a bunch over the last few days, the normally have a nice steady gain.
  • RSO - coml REIT. So low right now and it's hovering.
  • Apple. BioGen companies Natural resources Emerging energy sources.
  • I'd put it in an interest bearing checking acct or a money market fund, then I'd invest $1000 of it in an S&P500 index fund every month for 10 months. I'd spend the couple of hundred in interest on a couple of cases of good wine and try to ignore the market statistics for five years at least.
  • Microsoft. :p
  • If I had to put it in stock, I would put it in an index fund or an IPO, but that is not investment advice. I would say talk to an investment professional, but I don't really trust them, either, if they say to put your money in the market. People don't get how speculative the stock market is. Read the book Millionaire.
  • I'd put it safely in the hands of Mr Warren Buffet
  • I would buy tax advantage preferreds, they are yielding between 7.5 and 9.0% taxable equivalent of 10.50%. There are some good mutual funds out there that specialize in this space.
  • How old are you, what are your goals, how much risk can you stand, what is your present income? Answer those questions first. Then I'll tell you where to put your money.
  • Look for high dividend paying stocks. Check to make sure that their dividend is no more that 70% of their earnings. Check back five years. Familiarize yourself with the companies. I would by 4 different stocks -- $2500, each. A "high dividend" is anything paying more than 4%; But remember the dividend must be protected by earnings. So, if the stock earns $1.00, the dividend should be no more than 70 cents. Concentrate on that. Do your homework.
  • Look at McAfee, Crox, and EMC
  • I'd buy: ST JOE CO (NYSE:JOE) The land market in Florida will turn around and JOE will reap the benefits. I have time to wait for that to happen so that is my choice. Second choice: UNITED TECH (NYSE:UTX)
  • I was thinking of doing a very basic hedge, set up like this: Pick a few companies that I expect to outperform the market. (50%) Short an index. (SPY, QQQ) (50%) The short index leaves me with unlimited liablity if the index goes up, but if there is a great improvement in the market, my long stocks should outperform the index I should hope. The thinking here is that if we are in a real down market, all my stocks have to do is outperform the index. They could even go down. But I am concerned that the beach has gotten too crowded for this stroll- I can't tell what is going on, whether the Dow is going to dip another 1000 points or whether we've already bottomed out.
  • VDSI or FLO
  • Does that mean you couldn't put it in stock options?
  • Without a doubt: BRK.A - Berkshire-Hathaway, which is Mr. Warren Buffet's company.: The "LAST" price - Wednesday, April 30, 2008 was $133,800.00 U.S. Thanks for asking your Q!

  • I'm not sure what the current market is like but stocks like McDonalds are usually safe.
  • I'd put it into an oil co baby you know how big their profits are going to grow when oil hits 300.00 a barrel and all you idiots with cars who would rather die than take public transit are paying 9.00 a gallon for gas just to get to work.
  • I would do some research and put money into high paying dividend stocks and have the money re-invested called DRIPs.
  • I would invest in companies with high dividend yields and re-invest any gains.
  • Exxon-Mobil.
  • I would go with a stock that has been around for years, had ups and down but always pulls back up nicely, Ge is one IBM, Lockheed Martin, all good, if you want long term..  Others are the pharmacutical companies, anyone of those are always going to be around.  I wold stay away from automotive stocks always. Mutual funds are a good way to go , they are ok.  I would but them now, while they are low, even though they may stay tha way for a long while.
  • Gold. Right now, its $1,200 an ounce.
  • Oil! Then when it's almost gone sell them all. Simple.
  • Just don't invest in bank and finance stock now. wait for a couple of month or even next year when the sub prime crisis is over.
  • Dear ‘Ladyluck does not feel lucky’, From the question raised, you have actually equated ‘buying stock’ as a form of ‘investment’, which in my point of view may not necessarily be so. Stocks, bonds, option, futures etc are only financial instrument used by the ‘rich’ to make money. Another words, they are financial ‘vehicle’ to transport one to the desired financial destination. If you take a closer look into the life of the individuals whose success came from the stock market, in fact they had invested most of their time and effort in learning how to trade before they finally dump their hard earn money to ‘invest’. Those words which I’ve underlined are the elements which one should pay close attention and invest in, should you want to make big buck. In fact, you don’t need money to make money …. PS: Just my 2 cents view.
  • Wait for the market to claim down, plus we are going into a lsow down and that means prices are going lower, people have forgotten how the market works.

  • Smith & Wesson (NASDAQ: SWHC) (S&W) is the largest manufacturer of handguns in the United States. After the economy finishes collapsing, there will be a run on guns and religion as folks cling to them in desperation trying to protect what little they have left.
  • Lowe's. They are a fully debt-free company, and they are expanding into different market's every day. Home - Depot's stock looks better on a daily basis, but they borrow to build new stores, etc. Lowe's has always performed in the long run. Always.
  • chances are you'll loose money if you're a beginner, so just do the opposite of what you were going to do :)
