Since you are new to the investment community, I would strongly suggest you do not sell your newly acquired GTE shares (now VZ shares). This will be an excellent opportunity to see how the stock market works, and more important, how an investment can grow over a period of time (often refered to as long term buy and hold). If used properly, stock and mutual fund investing can insure future financial independence.
And as recommended by the previous post, keep checking in at the Fool to educate yourself on the market.

Good Luck!!!!
