Subject:  Roth IRA $5000 distribution Date:  6/23/2011  11:13 PM

Hello all. I am trying to decide how to invest the $5000 I can use each year in my Roth IRA. I had just been putting it into a mutual fund evenly distributed throughout the year.

But now I was thinking in investing in stocks suggested by TMF. Is there a rule for investing too little? Should I purchase $1000 worth of 5 different stocks throughout the year? $500 of 10 stocks? Or maybe $5000 of one stock?

Any suggestions would be grand. Thank you!
