I do some investing when I can afford it. I have stock in Kinder Morgan (KMP), Ford (F), Oxigene (OXGN), Midway Gold (MDW), and Waste Management (WM). All except OXGN have done well for me. Ford hasn't gained much yet, but I think it has potential. They just paid their first dividend in quite a few years. KMP is expensive, but they pay a good dividend and they are doing quite well. MDW went up 200% since I bought them, but I didn't invest much, and they have stayed steady for awhile now. WM has been steady for a LONG time now, and they pay a moderate dividend (around 4% I think).
Really depends what you want to do. Coca Cola would be a decent one to invest in that I haven't yet for a longer term stock. If you are shooting for a short gain, OXGN might go up some around June when there is an ASCO conference. GM and/or Ford wouldn't be bad choices. If you can get in on Facebook's IPO, it wouldn't be a bad deal.
