I've been a real fool in my first year of investing with no real strategy. As my portfolio stands now:
stock (# of shares)
AAPL (15)AMAT (20) AMZN (50) AOL (20) CMB (30) CSCO (20) ERICY (30) TXN (10) VERT (62). I've had to take some heavy losses in the past months by buying on margin. That was lesson #1. I'm ready to start my second year of investing off a little better. The question I have is should I liquidate the portfolio in all or part and reinvest? Also at this time I can invest about 500 a month without any hardships. I have no debt and no bills at this time, but that'll change. By the way I'm 25 and single. I see this next year as my window of opportunitny to put some money away for early retirement. Thanks Danny
