Personally I don't think you made such a transaction, because if you did you wouldn't be saying so on a yahoo message board. That is a lot of money. With that aside, if you had the money that would have been a good investment.
Since when is a $36,000 buy considered a lot of money?!? Seems reasonable to me, as I'd imagine a lot of people are looking for bargains to pick up after holding a cash heavy portfolio this year. I'm one of them.
