>>All Foolish four stocks have the little red sad faces. I realize its a good idea to buy while the
stocks are "on sale", but really now...
>>Im going to give it some time before I buy four sad faces.

The best thing that you can do is buy the stocks that you are interested in when there are "sad faces." In fact, hope that they get sadder and sadder before you buy. If you want a pair of Levis and find a pair in one store for $45 and find the EXACT same pair in another store for $39.99, which would you buy? (If you say "the ones for $45, I will slap you silly!!)

Seriously, if you are in it for the long term...do you research, pick great stocks and buy like mad when those sad faces appear....don't wait too long or else they may get happy again.

>>Id rather not have to endure a loss on the first day.

I know that may be your desire, but it is reality...don't look at day to day fluctuations if you are in it for the long term. Trust me...you may suffer a tremendous loss one year and have 3 great years after that. Losses are inevitable...but the gains are even more inevitable (provided you do your homework and pick your stocks wisely).

Keep up with the boards, ask for advice, but depend on your own research! Here's to happiness and prosperity!
