    • Well if you get married you will only have half of F,T,GM,VZ,S to worry about. Also if you want to buy any new toys (car, boat, motorcylce etc) buy them now or you will never get another chance.

    • Ask your wife.

    • DON'T GET MARRIED, cause then you will never have any money....your wife will try to take it when you are married, and will definitely take it when you get divorced. At least, you have a chance now.

      • A husband had just finished reading a new book
        entitled "YOU CAN BE THE MAN OF YOUR HOUSE"
        He stormed to his wife in the kitchen and announced, "From
        now on, you need to know that I am the man of this house and my
        word is Law". "You will prepare me a gourmet meal tonight, and when I'm
        finished eating my meal, you will serve me a sumptuous dessert".
        "After dinner, you are going to go upstairs with me and we
        will have the kind of sex that I want".
        "Afterwards, you are going to draw me a bath so I can
        relax. You will wash my back and towel me dry and bring me my robe.
        Then, you will massage my feet and hands".
        "Then tomorrow, guess who's going to dress me and comb my
        hair? The wife replied, "The fuc*ing funeral director would be my
        first guess......

        You better think about it.

    • First, "honor your father and your mother that it may be well with you."

      I think the housing market has some more bottoming out to do .. so I'd wait a while longer before buying into the down trend.

      My nephew just bought a used 2000 BMW with only 35,000 miles on it for $11,000. I think you should look for a deal like that.

      Dollar cost averaging on your down stocks is a good idea as long as they have upward potential over your investment horizon. If you are going to sell them by next year .. then it makes more sense to buy stocks that have upside potential.

      I'm surprised you don't have any energy stocks in your portfolio as these have been the best performers for the past few years. The japanese are killing the auto industry .. so GM is a dog.

      VZ has a great future with FIOS and wireless so I think they are a good long term investment. If they don't get into the 40s in a couple of years then I'd be very surprised because they have lots of growth coming. The one negative is the ALTEL purchase which will add 20B to their debt.

      Depending on how old you are .. "get a life .. get a wife" might be a worthwhile proverb to take seriously. A good woman can help to ground you and make your life blessed.

      Have your girlfriend buy your mom a new house, dollar average your car, marry your sister and tell your Dad to mind his own business. JMO. Oh, and NEVER ask for advice on a stock message board.
