I concur with everyone who has contributed to this thread. However, I would like to add this comment. If you invest in dividend paying stocks (which I also am doing), reinvest your dividends. My brokerage, ROTH and SEP-IRA are with Fidelity. All I had to tell them was "reinvest the dividends until further notice" and they do. It is surprising how fast you can accumulate additional stock by reinvesting the dividends.

In the meantime, I agree that you should just park the cash until you become more educated in the art of investing.
