I will tell you the truth, right now is a bad time to invest. Everything is so up and down chances are you will loose money no matter what you do when dealing with stocks. If you want an honest opinion I say you shop around and check the interest rates on CD's or invest in government bonds. This is a safe way to make a little bit of money and once the market gets better you can cash them out and invest in the market. But if you are going to invest in stocks, apple and other tech stocks are pretty good right now, the prices may seem high per share but realize they fell quite a bit when the economy tanked. Even a couple of shares of apple stock in a couple of years could get you a couple hundred bucks. Nothing crazy, but a good return on the investment.
