My mom is turning 60, and because of our foolish finances we are not sure whether she'll be able to retire at 65 or 70. Her mutual funds have not done too well. Since becoming a Fool, I've wanted her to invest using one of the Dow or S&P stock strategies talked about on the Motley Fool. But I just want to make sure that these strategies are sound for a person who might need the money (for a retirement income) in five years. What is the Foolish thing to do? I appreciate whatever Foolishness you're able to provide.
