Re: Anyone want to talk stocks and retirement?
I can't talk about a lot of this stuff at work so I'll get back later, but I wouldn't be buying any stocks in your position.
Most companies (TD, ETRADE, etc) have partnerships with some ETFs and they offer them for no commissions. Since I think you should be investing in ETFs anyways in your situation, given the amount you are investing cost is going to be extremely important. I would look into that.
