Now that I've sent my $2000 to a discount broker with Web capabilities for the 1998 tax year...would it be better to align it with a S&P 500 Index fund or hand pick 5-6 stocks?
Is there some reading you would recommend to educate me in this area?
I agree with the other posts and recommend that you invest your first $2000 into either a S&P 500 Index Fund or in AMEX: SPYders.
I would also recommend that you do quite a bit of reading and studying before you invest in your first individual stocks. A good place to start is at this site.
