Welcome.
<<1. I'm a brand new Fool and have been reading the 13 Steps in the Fool's School, and believe that I have (believe it or not) already done all of the things actually suggested so far up through about step seven or so. Now I'm intrested in doing some further investing, but can't find the list of recommended investments for the Foolish Eight, that I would like to monitor and/or invest in. Where do you hide it?? Is there a specific subject/location I need to look under?>>
Foolish 8?? how about the Foolish Four??

is where the current Dow lists are. You might want to check out the other portfolios as well.

<<2. When the recommended stock list is reviewed annually/quarterly, depending which program you are following, and stocks are sold because they are no longer on the list, do you re-invest equally again? Obviously some will increase and others might decrease, so is the total amount sold (dollars) all averaged together and re-invested equally again or is it just done by rolling all returns/losses from the sale of each stock into another, no matter of the gains or losses? >>
It is recommended to sell and buy after a year is up.
(to get long term tax rates. ) at which point you can total up your portfolio and make the needed changes.
the remaining stocks can be either Rule Breakers (growth) or Rule Makers (Great companies)
I am looking at doing it in a rolling fashion for additional savings. (waiting till I have 2,000 to put in,
and then choosing between a Dow or Rule stock, and after a year look at selling that stock or adding to it.These would perhaps end up being monthly changes.)

Good Luck
Canth.
