    KO for the next 25 years?

    Hi guys, for some reason I don't see too many women posting messages. I'm new in the stock market, and I bought KO when it
    was 65 1/4....Anyway, I'm looking to hold it for the next 25
    30 years. Is this a good choice?

    Thank you,

    • Yes Nixon did lie. alas it is true of so many of
      our illustrious leaders. However, IMHO, those 58000
      names on the wall belong to the Big eared one! Slick
      weelee? A special place is being reserved for that boy!

    • and here i thought all along it was nixon that
      lied thru his teeth...well maybe dentures...remember
      cambodia?...beagle lovers of america, unite...along with consumers
      of coca-cola...come to think of it, slick willie got
      his diet coke into his grand jury

    • Saw your statement re: Lieberman, CT, I can only
      say that we in Texas have an old saying, " the only
      honest democrat in history was LBJ, and he was the
      biggest crook of all..." Dittos on Jesse Ventura,

    • thanks for the heads up gal. We had most of that
      info long ago though. How can you tell an honest
      politician, isn't that like an oxymoron? Can GW Bush, Jr.
      spell military? Can you say John McCain? Last count I
      had there was 2 maybe 3 " good Democrats" so who are
      you talking about. Could this be more out of control
      than you think? Have you seen our Social Security
      surplus lately cause mine is headed out the dor to
      Russia, China,Yugo, Kosovo whatever? Thanks Rev. Jim Bob

      Our new
      pick is Computer Research, Inc. (CRIX) - Currently
      trading at $2.06

      Some times it is much wiser to
      look behind the scenes when investing in hot sectors.
      The brokerage and finance industry is growing by
      leaps and bounds, helping the stocks of companies which
      represent these industries climb to new heights. Computer
      Research provides computerized accounting and
      record-keeping support services to more than 50 securities
      broker/dealers, banks and other financial institutions. The
      company is directly affected by the volume of trading
      (stock and bond trades). In their last reported quarter,
      revenues were up nearly 30% and earnings were .03. The
      company said that the revenue increases were mostly due
      to increased trading volumes.

      Research has a dynamite balance sheet with nearly $2.5
      million in cash and short term investments and almost no
      debt. Last year was a time of re-configuration. They
      upgraded all their software systems to the year 2000
      compliant IBM AS/400 platform. They also managed to replace
      the revenue from a lost customer by adding 4 new
      customers. Now the company plans to focus on growth. And
      that is exactly what we like....

      Computer Research is one of the most
      solid little companies we have ever come across. A
