hey there--

my mother-in-law is looking to get a better return on her investments. (she's currently in some underperforming mutual funds). my first thought would be to recommend to her to put part of her dough in an index fund or two, (s&p 500, nasdaq 100, etc), letting her decide the level of risk she wants to take. but in thinking about this further, i wonder if she might not want to take part of this money and put into high yield stocks that give her some dividend cash. my job as a good son-in-law, of course is to recommend she do her own homework. i'm just trying to give her some direction. any thoughts if you have the time would be appreciated.

thanks

keith
