Dear Mr. Berko: My elder sister, who never married and who worked for a large automobile dealer in Detroit, passed away last year, and her estate was finally settled. My remaining sister and I were the sole inheritors of a huge portfolio of 16 stocks, valued at $732,000. All the stocks are well-known blue chips except for 300 shares of Credit Acceptance Corp. We intend to keep all the blue chip stocks because they pay good dividends and because we’re familiar with their names — Southern Co., AT&T, Boeing, Eli Lilly, Verizon, Pfizer, etc. But we’ve never heard of Credit Acceptance, which doesn’t pay a dividend, and we would like your opinion. Should we sell it or hold?
