What stocks do you own right now?

If you own a ton of different stocks, share your biggest 4 or 5 positions.

I am a nerd in the stock market so I have never been into it. A buddy tried to explain me the in and outs of the stock but still I can't get the confidence on the stock market and so I prefer not to invest.

With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.

A good place to start is by reading Investors Business Daily. They generally have a intro deal where you can get the paper for two weeks, free.

Do you have a "lock up period" or are you free to sell them at will? Unless you are locked up, you might want to step back and take a look at the entire pool of stocks available, then decide what it makes sense for you to own.

Often, by default, people own shares in the companies they work for. Sometimes this ends up not being a sound investment.

Just my two cents.

Zulu, Without a lock up, I think you step back and ask the question: Of all the stocks to choose from, would I buy today, the ones I already own?

If the answer is yes, sit pat.
If the answer is no, you make changes.

One other thought: by holding only two stocks, you have a lot at risk with either one of them.
