I'ts always risky to hold just ONE stock. YOu never know what will happen.

I'd have kept the Vanguard funds (you can buy half bonds/half stock).....and not own individual stocks if you are uncomfy.

Zero equities at 70? Heck, you have a good chance to live to 90 and if you don't own equities, you lose out on nearly all inflation protection.

with Obama running up debt from 16 trillion to over 20 trillion, the only way out for the government is high inflation down the road.

YOu'll get creamed if you are in CDs or cash.
