So I decided it was finally time to diversify, so I sold some MSFT options
and now I'm look for new places to put the money, probably mostly in mutual
funds, with a fair portion in overseas funds. First I started looking on
the web at particular companies ( <>, <>, etc.) and then at
summary pages ( <>,
<>, which is fine but I'm
sure that someone on this list has gone through all this before. Well, okay,
of COURSE Adam has a zillion "finance" links. But as Nillson observed in
"The Point", a web page that points everywhere isn't much better than one
that doesn't point anywhere at all...

I guess what I'm really asking is, what's your philosophy on investing? Any
insights or useful experience? Anyone want to argue that mutual funds are
for wimps and I should invest everything in WorldCom? :-)
