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.
