Somehow, 2007 is almost over already, and all I can think about is money... As in holiday shopping and flexible spending accounts and taxes and the crazy markets and when the battery in my car might die. In times like these, we turn to the Motley Fool for answers (maybe not the car battery, but everything else). As we come up on 2008, what should you keep in mind in terms of your portfolio? Is it time for a tune-up? Turns out giving stock away might make a lot of sense. And, with everyone filling the malls and online stores, should you drop some retail stocks into your stocking? David Gardner is back to talk money. And, if my math is right, Neal still has $1,000 in faux cash to spend on his fantasy portfolio. Got any advice on where to put it?
