Well, I did a little research on fidelity and a lot of the retirement guidance was all about investing in dividend paying stocks. It seemed that the big slow growing companies (P&G) stock price didn't budge all that much, but it still had a pretty good dividend. So my logic behind investing in them for my mom would be that she wouldn't have to worry about her money shooting up or down rapidly, and that the price will stay relatively the same, but she will get her money on the dividend return.

Any other suggestions if you don't feel that would be the best way to invest?
