    Sirius cause it is only going to get bigger or be absorbed by XM. (I have XM)

    XM would be a good choice also.

    Intel is a good stock, it is at above its 52 week high right now.

    I think it will go a lot higher because of all the iPod domination and now the switch to intel will help the company's growth quite a bit. I got in when it was around $15 so I was lucky I guess you could say. Just my $0.02

    Just be sure to buy it before the holidays get too close and before HS gets kicked off the air.

    I used to play the market a bit and a grizzled old guy I worked with used to mock me when I'd brag about how much my stock had gone up. He'd say, and he was right, that I hadn't made a penny until the cash was back in my pocket. Its a lot like being up by $500 at the blackjack table. :D

    Why would HS get kicked off? They do not have to abide by FCC regulations...

    Viacom will throw him off before his contract is up. They need time to get the new progam going..

    SBC:
    10% year over year growth
    5% dividend
    Adds up to 15% year over year, not bad. Kinda kicked in the teeth right now because of the ATT/Cingular and SBC/ATT mergers but should pop when the mergers are done.

    (SBC owns something like a 40% stake in Cingular, thats how thier stock is affected)
