How did you get started in investing?
Through work in the 1970s with a 401(k).
What is your best investment so far?
What is your worst investment so far?
None. Everything works. When the market when down, especially in the beginning of 2000, we lost a lot of money but we got it back.
Don't think about it until it's time to need money, so on a bad day, when the Dow Jones goes down, I don't feel so bad.
Do you think now is a good time to invest?
The market is going up overall. I'm optimistic.
How are you invested now?
All in 401(k) and IRAs - Franklin Templeton and Oppenheimer and some others.
Where do you get your investment advice?
From a broker. Also, I read the newspaper every day. I let the (broker) make money. I don't let myself get a headache from investments.
