Investing can be a very rewarding thing but successful investing usually takes some work.

You may want to consider parking the rest of the dough in something safe like a money market rather than something risky like stocks (investing in stocks is risky by nature, investing in stocks based on someones else's recommendation without knowing why is very risky by nature.)

In the meantime, you might want to learn about how to invest.

I always suggest Ben Graham's book "The Intelligent Investor"

The chapters on the difference between speculation and investing & the difference between a defensive and enterprising investor would probably be helpful.

In the best case, you'll want to eventually have a clear idea of what you're putting your money into and absolutely have a basis as to why.
