Thanks to all of you for the very informative responses. Yes, you all are right -- I need to sit down and actually plan my investments (what a concept!).
For the record, OB, I'm 46, so I have slightly less than 20 years till retirement. However, I'm planning on going to law school in the fall of 2002, so I need to make sure I have some cash available. Of course, I'll continue working full-time while in school, so I still have income coming in.
Anyway, I've printed out all the advice, including your articles, George (thanks for the links), and have blocked a time into my calendar to come up with a plan and a budget.
By the way, has anyone taken the Fool course on picking stocks -- I think it's called Find the Best Stocks for Your Portfolio? I just wondered if it was worth $44, or if I could figure it out on my own. Or does anyone have any tips for good BASIC guides to investing they'd like to share? I love to research, and have about 25-30 library books dealing with the subject on my kitchen table -- but I'm feeling slightly overwhelmed by them all, since I really don't know enough to know what advice is good and what is bad when it comes to picking stocks.
