Dear Mr. Berko: I just sold 1,000 shares of Dow Jones at $57 that my broker had me buy at $34 in March. Now he wants me to buy 3,000 shares of SuperGen, a bio-pharmaceutical company that sells around $7. What do you think of this stock? It's not quality like Dow Jones, and I'm a bit reluctant to invest $21,000, which is the profit I made on Dow Jones. T.S. Oklahoma City Dear T.S.: ... [full story]

One question uppermost in the minds of many retirees and those eyeing that milestone is how they can prevent some destructive force from rolling over their nest eggs and leaving nothing behind but tread marks. Perhaps the best answer to this question didn't originate at a brokerage house with a Wall Street address or a hoaried economics professor at a place like the Wharton School. Rather, the words of wisdom come from an unassuming certified ... [full story]

Dear Mr. Berko: I have owned several Motorola phones and I'm pleased with how they work. I would like to invest $1,000 for my son, who also owns a Motorola cell phone, and buy him 50 shares of Motorola stock, which sells for less than $20. Do you think this would be a good, long-term purchase for him? P.N. Aurora, Ill. Dear P.N.: It's almost inconceivable that back in early 2000, Motorola Inc. (MOT-$18.71) was ... [full story]

Dear Mr. Berko: I'm about to invest $350,000 in a trust deed that will pay 18 percent. The company representing this investment is purchasing a privately owned state-chartered bank in Nevada as well as a financial advisory management company. I've seen the signed contracts for the purchase and sale of these investments and when they are finalized I will also be entitled to 1.5 percent equity participation as well as the continuing 18 percent on ...

Financial Advice For College Students College students are the largest identifiable segment of first-time customers for credit card issuers.  Competition for the college market is fierce and is only expected to intensify.  In fact, credit card companies will be on campuses rolling out their credit card offers and free t-shirts before classes even begin.  These offers work well-according to a recent survey by the Jump$tart Coalition, 45 percent of college students are currently in credit ...

Dear Mr. Berko: What innovation would you look for in the information technology business that could be the next Microsoft or Dell or Intel? Are there two or three companies you would own that could be the next big winner in the IT field? What are your thoughts on Sirrius/XM Satellite radio for a long-term investment? What do you think of Vonage, which I bought (against your advice) as an initial public offering at $17 ... [full story]

Dear Mr. Berko: While my wife and I were visiting friends in Delray Beach, Fla., recently, we attended a financial seminar run by two young men who were very persuasive speakers. Each man's card says CIS (certified insurance specialist), CSA (certified senior specialist), CAS (certified annuity specialist), CTA (certified tax specialist) and BCES (board-certified estate-planning specialist). The younger one is also a CSC (certified senior consultant) and a CTS (certified tax specialist). Those men are ... [full story]

Dear Mr. Berko: Several years ago, you recommended Wackenhut Corp., which changed its name to GEO. I bought 75 shares around Thanksgiving of 2005 at $21. As you know it's now over $50 and I need to know if you think the stock has stopped its revenue and income growth and if I should finally take my profits. If you think I should sell, please tell me why and what stock would you recommend with ... [full story]

Too many people who portray themselves as financial experts aren't. The threshold to get into this business is too low to cull out the knuckleheads, but you can eliminate many candidates by rejecting any adviser who isn't a true fiduciary. Working with a fiduciary - someone who is required to put your interests first - is so important that I'd urge you to avoid any financial adviser who won't acknowledge a fiduciary duty to you ...

When it comes to getting a new car, many people wrestle with whether to lease or buy. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to understand your needs and payment habits before signing on the dotted line. With a loan, you borrow money to purchase the car then own it once the loan is paid off. With a lease, however, you agree to pay a leasing agency (a lender often identified through the ...

Dear Mr. Berko: I have watched Sprint for a couple of years and the stock has done nothing. In fact Sprint just lost its huge government contract. Why did this happen? Will it affect the company's future revenues and profits? I'm considering the purchase of 1,000 shares as a long-term investment. Please tell me what you think. And do you think that after two years of no appreciation that Sprint may be ready to move ... [full story]
