Before you start complaining, I admit that this process may take some time to complete. However, investing is not a sprint ... its a marathon, and the market will
surely be here whenever you are good and ready. So sit back, put in the time, do your research, and your portfolio will be much better off as a result.<<<

Right on the money Lance! There is absolutely no rush to convert mutual funds to individual stocks. One can lose plenty of money in a poorly thought out position and pay plenty of capital gains taxes to boot. I think its best to proceed cautiously and studiously and buy stocks one at a time selling enough of your mutuals each time to afford each reasonable purchase.
