I am a newly retired teacher with 60K that I must rollover from my pension fund into an IRA. I have a broker at Prudential who was recommended to me by my mother and he has done very well by her. He has her in some blue chip Dow stocks and in FTU where she owns about 80K shares. I am looking to do the Fool 22345 with a double on GM, Sears, Goodyear and Eastman Kodak. I will put 20-25K into this Dow Portfolio. I am thinking of adding to my DRP's, a 1000 apiece for Atmos, Johnson Control, and Washington Gas Light with 4K into MA Hanna. I figure 5K each into Dell, Cisco, AFLAC and Diebold. I will keep the balance in a Money Market fund for a bit until I get a chance to do some research on Amgen, Xilinx, and Compaq plus some other mid and small caps. I am new to this game and would appreciate some one's opinion on the above
