I will go with D on this one.

E comes close but slightly changes the meaning of the original sentence.

OFFICIAL Answer:

D. The underscored portion of the sentence lacks conciseness. This should be rather obvious. What may not appear to be as obvious, however, is that there is a subject verb disagreement between "message" and "make". Be aware that the GMAT test writers love to add prepositional phrases in between the subjects and verbs to mask this disagreement. Choice A, B, and C can be eliminated because they each incorrectly begin with the verb "make". Choice E is wrong because it changes the meaning of the sentence. The speaker of the sentence never stated that he or she did not invest any money in NASDAQ stocks, but simply that he or she did not invest all of his or her money in those stocks.
