Chorus members worst enemy? COLDS." Servicemen 0. I need tome advice en leaving money to my heir*. I have stock in the Greater Iowa Corp. I have been watching Xerox. What do you think of it? What would you buy? A. What you should invest in for your estate would tte- pend on whom ybu are leaving your money to. If it is your widow, or small children who would be dependent on it for their chief source of income, you should aim toward a steady dividend. If, on the other hand, you would be leaving your money to grown children who would not be relying on it is a livelihood, you might be more willing to invest in stocks that would be more growth oriented and with less emphasis on dividends. No service I have lists Greater Iowa Corp., so I am unable to comment on it. As for Xerox, just th^ fact that you have been watching the stock price is no reason to buy it. You can watch the stock's price every day for. the next twenty years and never learn anything Important about the company, and its value as an investment. What you should watch is the sales record and the earnings per share record of »he company. For this company, both have increased four to five times in the past five years. That's very good. At the same time, the price of the stock has gone up many times and at this writing is selling about 72 times last year's earnings. Even for that outstanding sales and earnings reoordi, that is a pretty rich price. It's well above the average high price earnings ratio the stock has sold for in the last five years. , ; As far as telling you what stocks I would buy, I'm send- • ing you the latest three issues of "Better Investing", the National Association! of Investment Clubs' magazine. You'll notice that a "Stock tp Study this Month" is featured on page one of each issue. I recommend that you study these stocks yourself to see if one or more of them meet your needs. Q. I don't watch the market every day, but for the U»t Ip years I have invevte<rf froni' time to time in; Park-Davis, Bell A Howell, Ford Motor Jersey, U. 1 Steel, Alcoa and Burroughs. If has been tue> tested that because I don't watch the market closely, I should Mil out and buy mwt< ual fund stocks. What do you think? . A. You have accumulated some good stocks and, if you have held a number of them for 10 years, you certainly have a nice profit, so failure to watch the market every day obviously hasn't hurt you up to now. First, if you sell those stocks you're going to have to pay a tax on your profits. Secondly, if you then buy a mutual fund, several percent of your money is going for a sales charge and the odds are those very same stocks you already own will be in the portfolio of the fund you buy. Q. I own chares in General Aniline A Film, and Transamerica Corp. Should I sell some of them? A. Without knowing what your goals are, I'm hard put to tell you what to do. If you're alter growth, you have good stocks. If you need top income, then you should talk to your broker about selling some of these and getting some stocks that will pay better dividends.
