Re: Any investors here?
A lot of good advice here but before taking any of it. You should sit down with an accountant or financial advisor. Ask your parents or someone you trust who is good with money to recommend someone. Give them a call and talk to them. Tell them what you told us and ask for their suggestions.
Investing is something to really research. If you are going to go into stocks, Sharebuilder through ING Direct is one of the best deals, with low cost stock buying.
