like the funds that are present at this of my coworker chose the wcom common stock
instead of the others...the only fund that i think is worth choosing is the S&P index fund....which can
give me a good annual return...and i checked on the MCIC stock (before the merger) it
outperformed the S&P a little my question is...shalli invest all my savings in
MCIWORLDCOM common stock? or should i diversity my investments a little?

Personally, if you feel good about the company stock, I'd spit the money between stock and index fund. I did this while working for USWest. I liked the stock, but didn't want all my retirement eggs in one basket.
