    Stock Picks

    >>Can you recommend some good stocks for me since you are such
    >>a savy investor so I too can make money?

    I have a terrible track record for buying and selling stocks.
    Yet the one stock I have consistently made money on is Microsoft.
    Since 1993 I have been buying and holding MSFT. I sold off
    some last year, which I regret. If I had held the stock, it would be worth double the price today. I bought some Compaq
    stock 2 hours before the Oct crash started and unloaded at a
    small loss. This offsets my small gain on SGI stock, which
    I bought on a hot tip and had to hold for a year to barely
    come out ahead. Have I made my point? I have a lot to learn.
    That's why I've been reading these messages.
