HelloI have a suggestion after reading everyone's ideas. No one suggested putting all $100,000 in a savings/money market fund and wait for opportunities to arrise for what you know as good safe investments at close to the best prices.I sold my condo and invested everything within a short period of time and didn't understand the importance of price. I bought index funds, a small cap value fund and an international fund. They had good morningstar ratings. I bought GE and PFizer as a possiblity to increase the returns. I am sure you know what happened. In less than two years, I lost 33% of my money. It was a nightmare. For the last 8 months I have tried to learn on my own and opened a small Scottrade account. I have been able to make profits because I learned about buying at a reasonable price and selling at a reasonable profit.I think you could wait for the impending pullback in the market and do a lot better for your mom.I'm just a beginner and am only two years younger than your mom.Dianne
