of my investment choices and why I picked them, along with graphical datato illustrate my buying and selling dates.After making my choices I decided to distribute my $100k evenly $10kfor each group, and made each investment on February 23. The two majormarket common stocks I invested in were Bank of America and Citigroup. Iinvested in these companies because, simply, the US government invested inthem so I felt they were a good buy.My over the counter common stock is Oracle, because they are a veryreputable company that is known world wide. The American DepositoryReceipt investment is British Petroleum; which I picked because gas pricesare only going to rise in the future.My preferred stock is Pacific Gas and Electric Company ; I picked PG&Ebecause they have a very large market share and have been grantedmonopoly rights in many areas on the west coast. The last dividend theyoffered was $.42 per share. With only 285 shares my total dividend was only$119.70, on April 14. The closed-end fund I chose was Blue Chip Value Fund, INC (above),because they deal with stocks that have a high value, thus this fund has alower risk in my opinion. For my first mutual fund I picked BlackRock FocusGrowth A, which is a large cap fund because I trust the folks at yahoo andthis was at the top of their list. My second choice was Nicholas Liberty whichis a Mid-Cap Growth mutual fund that was also at the top of yahoo’s list.
