Is the Foolish Four still considered a good strategy or should I look towards individual stocks? Of course I will invest in a no-load index fund to begin with and then go from there.

As a Fool, you get to choose. To the best of my knowledge, the Foolish Advice is still to begin with index funds or spiders (See Harry Jones Portfolio for more about spiders), then Foolish Four, then decide if you are willing to spend any more time. If yes, consider the Rule Maker Portfolio, the workshop portfolios, and the Rule Breaker Portfolio, and anything else that catches your fancy.
