As I posted previously, I exercised some stocks options, and I got the check (over $4100) in the mail yesterday. I took it to the bank at lunch time today. I put in an order for anohter $1000 worht of IYR which is a REIT index fund. This will max out my 2005 contributions to my Roth IRA. I like IYR. It is not growing as fast as a few of my stocks, but it is growing fairly consistantly. It also has a nice yield which works out great in the Roth IRA as I don’t have to pay taxes on them! :) Grow baby, grow! So between the price of the stock increasing, and the 4.5% yield (last time I checked), it has a really nice return!
