Wow well thanks to everyone for the wonderful recommendations and help :)
I will definitely consider all of the information you guys shared with me, so thank you again.

Peter, my mom is 58, she has $25,000 for retirement, 10k in cd's and 15k in a savings account and that's it. She doesn't have a 401k or pension, so she's going to be working for awhile.

My plan was to only have her invest 5k (from one of her cd's which comes up soon) into 5 diversified dividend stocks to hopefully build her confidence in the market and show her she can get a better return than <1%.

So I'm really doing this because I've had some success in the market in the last couple of years, and it seems that dividend stocks would be a good investment for my moms money.

Thanks again.

-Mark
