I have about $50 a month to invest (LT of course).
In the arena of buying individual stocks, say I have 5 stocks that I really like, what would be the best way to establish positions in each of the five for the long term? Buy $50 of one each month? Buy $10 each every month? Just what is the best way? Also, my current brokerage fee is $8 per trade. Thx RB
