Hello all,
I am about to make my first purchases. Starting with only 14k and hoping to add on a monthly basis in small amounts. In my goal to attain at least 15 stocks, how do I spread my initial investment out? I understand the idea of not having all my eggs in one basket but if this is my only "large" purchase for awhile, would it be wise to pick, say 7 or 8 with the money evenly divided between them or should I pick 12 to 15?

Thanks in advance,
Ernie
