TPJ --<<Then this article came out and made me feel alot better about my choice. So thank you to the MF staff. >>I'm the one who prepared that article, and I'm glad it made you feel better! No matter how long you're planning to hold a stock, the number of shares shouldn't make a difference. You could have 66,667 shares of a 3-cent stock or 200 shares of a $10 stock or 26 shares of a $75 stock, and the bottom line is that you'd essentially simply have a $2,000 investment -- one that could go up or down 5% or 10% or 30% or whatever% this year and next year and so on. (Of course, staying away from 3-cent stocks is usually a smart move. Any stock trading for less than $5 per share is in penny-stock territory and is probably extra volatile and risky.)Best wishes,Selena
