I like your thinking, Mink.The companies you name are solid industry leaders and large caps. I don't expect any of them to go out of business very soon, and they are well managed and likely to recover promptly when the economy does.Picking 3 to 6 of those companies and dividing your funds between them is an excellent strategy. This will not be high growth, but should keep up with inflation, pay decent dividends, and keep you in equities without major risk taking.As an alternative, consider an S&P 500 Index funds such as VFINX from Vanguard for comparison. The S&P pays decent dividends. And is broader based, more diversified.
