My oldest stock is WMT, and it's pretty much the anchor. We got into it when my husband took a second job at the local Wally World to help pay the mortgage. Now that we changed our single family house for a two family, we don't need his second job, but we still drip WMT. We also hold CSCO -- bought it at rock bottom, thank you very much -- ELNK, KSE and HDI.

In one of those woulda, coulda, shoulda scenarios, I had a chance to buy HDI back when it first went public, I'd have a more than $3 million off them right now, but I was a poor working girl at the time who didn't have $2,000 on hand to buy a thousand shares. Dang!

Uhura :o)
