    For me, right now it's Altria. Yesterday was a great day. I wish I had more than 130 shares. I read that Bernanke only invests in Altria; no bonds, mutual funds, or other stocks. If it's good enough for the fed chairman, it's good enough for me.

    If you guys were forced to choose only one stock to invest in, what would it be?

    If I could only invest in one thing, it would be a mutual fund.

    Investing in one stock, and one stock alone, is nutty.

    I'd also like to see a link to where the Fed announced his investment strategy, and his holdings. :rolleyes:

    Granted, Bernanke isn't nearly as rich as Greenspan, who does diversify.

    Two years ago, I decided to buy a powerbook and ipod instead of shares of my favorite soda company, Hansen. Macs are great and all but that has been my biggest financial regret so far. If I had put the money into Hansen, it'd be worth $200,000 right now. :( Buying just one stock is nutty, but it's a chance I'm willing to take while I'm young.

    :eek: Ouch.

    Here is a kind of nerdy business school video about Columbia Business School's Dean Glenn Hubbard - about wanting Alan Greenspan's job that went instead to New Fed Chair Ben Bernanke.
