Probably my biggest investment mistake was putting $5000 in the Fidelity Magellan stock mutual fund in 1995 for an IRA and then not adding more to it as the years went by. It's now worth close to $60,000. If only I was smart enough to put in at least $1000 to it every year since 1995, I'd be a millionaire by now. I also should have bought stock in Wal-Mart during the 1990s, or better yet during the 1980s. Young people listen up! Amazon, too!
