As things go, in the last two weeks I've happened upon a modest sum of money, and am now comfortably arranged for a good time. In that light, I am interested in some serious investment, and would like to see what you think are some good businesses to build a portfolio around.

What's your time horizon? Do you need the money soon or is this more like, planning for retirement?

I would recommend USANA Health Sciences (NYSE: USNA). They are a multilevel marketing distribution company that have been featured multiple times on CNN and CNBC and have very healthy numbers. I say they are also good because as the baby boomer generation becomes much older the trend of health is going way, way up. Buy yourself a few shares and see where you can go.

Others also recommend buying gold or silver as they seem most stable. But you know, I don't do any of this stuff. Jinghao is the one here who actually has and probably can tell you the results of his hard work.

A bit sampling of our portfolio:

NBG, C, JSDA (your recommendation), STD, F, ING, FBC, ATVI, IRE.

Also check out some of the resource-exploration "penny" stocks, particularly in Alaska.

Eh, I don't need money right away, I'm thinking a more longterm investment.

Check out some of these. I've recently read an analysis that Brazil will be in the top 3 as far as economic growth rate, within 5 years. They have interesting sector distributions: http://www.latinstockinvesting.com/p/brazi...stock-list.html

It's definitely a buyer's market right now.

Oh, and did you get my email?

Don't invest in companies just because they appeared in the news.

I don't agree with any of those stocks. They're very high-risk stocks in general.

Yup. But they have done me pretty well, and are currently in a slight downturn (with the rest of the market), so good time to buy. What do you consider "safe"?

And do note that I'm heavily biased toward financials, since that's what I know best.

swink.gif Risky was my middle name. But you're right, for something to garner a more reliable income, I would never invest in something as dangerous forthright.

Yea, ten years is a good time frame. I'm thinking either stocks or start rolling out some CDs at a place that offers a fair APY.

None of them are really that good...but the best out of what there are, as far as I know, are Sallie Mae and Discover.
