EEeeeeeee.... I wouldn't do any of that yet... except maybe MO, and then only for the dividend.

You'll have a better entry soon, I suspect.

Crown Castle, Ford, Toll Brothers, and the Semiconducter Index (SMH) are my picks.

Ford... maybe I am being stubborn.

No offence but...
Ford? There not going anywhere for at least 15 years.
I'll be dead. My health is poor.
Tech stock and new homes? Not sure on that.

That's ok, for every buyer you need a seller. My experience with "The Street" is that they will say how horrible the airlines are, the autos are, etc. and pooh pooh them all around the bottom. When they rise 30% off of the bottom they will start to warm, and when the stocks are 50% off the bottom they will trip overthemselves to upgrade them. New City Financial was actually downgraded by Piper Jaffrey at $1.80. Not at $40 a month ago. Not at $50 two months ago. I don't need anyone to tell me to buy a stock at $40 and sell it at $1.80. I can do that all by myself. And regarding the airlines, the big boys all downgarded CAL (the strongest one) at $10. The rationale was unions...fuel...bankruptcy...never make money...etc. I bought when the last one downgraded. Unfortunately I held it only until $12, and not $50.

FYI : I am up $2.00/share on TOL (new homes), up even more on SMH (semis), and up $3.60 on Crown Castle (CCI), I am even on Ford because I bought a big piece at 7.53 to bring my average to where it is now. Be careful: when everyone is saying the same thing (analysys, TV, CNBC,etc) only one person is doing the thinking.

I do wish you luck and prosperity. We all play for the same reason!

Investing is not a get rich quick game. It is about growing wealth over time. If you are not an experienced trader and do not want to put the time in, you should look into a "passive" strategy of investing. This does not mean buy the S&P500 and you are done. A diversified asset allocation can be achieved using ETF's that will provide exposure to large, small, value, growth and international equities. I like the idea of having exposure to around 14,000 securities with roughly 8 positions in the account. It is cheap, tax efficient and although there is a lot of debate, it outperforms over time.
