I have an existing deferred comp plan that I am allowed to control exclusively. Retirement in about 10
years, company (non-profit) so no cap gains until I cash out at lower, (I imagine) tax rate. 10 % annual contribution investing monthly, my choice.SO, I am taking the plunge of going with an online discount broker in stocks, no bonds.

Lessee now ... to quadruple in 10 years means you want to double every 5 years. According to the Rule of 72, to do that you are looking for a return of under 15%/year. That kind of return doesn't sound very risky to me!

Have you looked into the Fool Portfolios, http://www.fool.com/portfolios.htm, or the Fool School, http://www.fool.com/school.htm, or the Foolish Workshop, http://www.fool.com/workshop/workshop.htm for suggestions? You will be able to educate yourself as to how you want to invest your money, using your own ideas.

To quadruple your money in 10 years you will need to obtain an annual average return of 14.87%. That's certainly a possibility for someone who's willing to take a risk. For some approaches in doing so, just visit the Fools School and Workshop areas of Fooldom to see what others are doing.

You're in a deferred compensation plan. For a description of that, see my Foolish Retirement Plan Primer at http://www.fool.com/retirement . When you retire, you must take a distribution of the money in that plan, and it will be taxed at ordinary income tax rates when you do. It cannot be transferred to an IRA, and you cannot recognize or use a lower capital gains rate on your earnings. Thus, your tax rate will be based on the income tax tables in effect at that time.
