yes, you should invest when you are young...Trust me. I am not good at it but I have small amount invested in stock. I joined the stock market too late but better late then never. When you graduate and have your first job, really learn about the company 401K plan and put something in it (even if it is like $100 a month).

That is the only advice I can give since I am not an expert in what sort of stock to get. I also know to buy low and sell high but I don't follw it everyday to know when the best time to buy and sell.

it's all about diversification man,

unless there's a huge pot o funds, that's WAY too much to have in one place.


any investment could loose ALL value. Even if it is way down your parents should sell a large chunk and diversify

i dont play the stock but diversification is smart-- thats one the basic principles in investment... and for me personally... i wouldnt invest in anything i didnt use... it gives me more confidence in a stock when i can back up their products... but obviously w/ that mentality your not gonna get far quickly.

anything you can put away is good. I wish I had some apple's share back when they were really low and before it splits...

I agreed with Ward, it is all about diversification. Spread the wealth around.

small caps are good,

big companies like apple, coke, cisco, ibm...... have already made huge gains, and dont' have the same potential for growth.

it's all about trying to find the next apple.

ipo's are hard to get ahold of...
but diversification is key... so you don't have the risk of losing everything when something fails...

of course, with a much more diversified portfolio, you're looking at a lot more time spent observing each stock's trends etc.

Sorry Vic but i hope your folks have more than JDU.
The enoromous fiberoptic buildout that happened in the late 90s is finished. Telecom equipment is in the can. It's going to take a long time for JDU to ever find traction with the market.

Do you remember (probably not) when they wrote down 50 billion dollars worth of equity? What a frikkin' meltdown, a real tragedy.

Well you know the oil complanies made out well. I would also recommend diversifying and not keeping all the eggs in one basket. Look at the expense ratio when buying as well. Trading charges can become expensive. I have heard great things about Vanguard. Also consider healthcare companies to become a bigger industry when as more and more of the baby boomers come to age. Its already started but is going to become larger in the number of retirees by 2012.
