Please let me know the sugestion, I dont like to trade, I want to keep it for 2-3years.

Seven hundred dollars, while it might seem to be a lot, isn’t. You can’t get into the game with that stake. Further, long term in the stock market is ten to twenty years. That’s based on the conventional wisdom that the market hasn’t “lost” in any ten year period in modern time. May I suggest that if you are adamant about WalMart for three years that you consider using… that would allow you to get in and out without being eaten alive. Don’t get me wrong, just because you can do something doesn’t make it a good idea to do it. I’d suggest a CD until you learn more and have more.
