I picked my 15 stocks to watch but have limited funds. Should I pick some of the fifteen or divide by all 15 to invest? Why?

I would diversify as best you can, if you are using a discount broker like e-trade you can buy odd lot shares and pay the 9.99 fee even for as little as 10 Shares. this is a good way to diversify by making more smaller purchases to get established.

One thing to keep in mind is tyring to keep your transaction costs low, typically below 2%. So for example if you are buying 10 shares of a 100 dollar stock and paying 9.99, 10x100= $1000, the 9.99 would be a mere 1% and that would be good. If you bought 10 $10 shares, 9.99 would be 10% of your cost.

Riingo,

I'll give you my idea of a good portifilo. This is from the view of a retired person-but I belive it would work well for anyone. I like dividens, plain and simple. If a younger person re-inveasted the dividens(buying more shares), when you are ready to withdraw from your portifilo, you gave nice gains. Also, I try to keep a couple of growth stocks than delive faster gains.

Buy the companies based on the currently most attractively valued first, followed by the next down the list and so forth. If you want diversification, have about 2/3 of your investment capital in an S&P500 Index Fund.

BTW: I personally believe that diversification just for the sacke of diversification is widely over-rated after you own about six different companies in different sectors of the economy.
