I would actually suggest the opposite. If you have a lot of money (eg $5,000+) I would suggest investing it in the stock market. Get a broker and wait a couple of months until the summer for everything to bottom out.

Gambling it is just a waste. At least you can invest it at the moment. Check out bonds while you're at it.

Charles Schwab is a great investment brokerage bank. Check out the free investor checking account. I use it and I love it!

kinda offtopic question.

My mother had a bunch of stock from a long time ago given to her by her father. It has split so many times that she has no idea what she even has anymore. Is there a way she can check ? Also she wants to put all the stock in my name .. I know you can only gift 12k worth before getting hit with taxes .. is this true ?

HAHAHA looking back at this has made me laugh. i did invest around £3,500 initially.

Before the launch of Iphone 4 i reinvested at $385 a share and bought another £5,000

Now my dividends pay for each of my upgrades when new models come out + more.

Laughing now guys.

i could say mac rumors has paved me some £. hahahaha

I'm just now seeing this as well. Kind of funny seeing people say don't buy! Shoot, $82 in 2008? MBPDiva would have been sitting pretty nice if she had bought it then. I wish I would have done it, I was just getting into Apple at the time and didn't follow or know anything about stocks and the market.

I used TD Waterhouse (now http://www.tddirectinvesting.co.uk) when I was dipping into stock trading.

They were OK and slightly cheaper then the share dealing service offered by my bank. I managed my account online etc.
