... GOOG Alaphabet but the price per share is over $900, and I'm just beginning to build my long term foundation of beginner stocks. At that price per share I could only afford 2 or 3 shares is that sensible or should I say: Is that what a Motley fool would do? If I can save $700 a month to buy stocks each month, how would I acquire GOOG?

At $700 a month you'd be able to buy a share of GOOG every other month or so. But why? GOOG pays no dividend so you'd be dependent solely upon GOOG's price appreciation to increase your wealth.

Pays NO dividend.

Follow question: My goal is to get 15 beginner stocks in my foundation. When do begin buying the stocks of month? Is there a rule of thumb for how many shares overall should be in my basic portfolio or a certain total value BEFORE I begin buying FOOLISH stocks of the month?

If you're just getting started in stocks you might want to look into Exchange Traded Funds (ETF)

If you want to buy/pick the companies you buy you might look into these:

Personally I no longer buy companies that don't pay me to own them (Pay dividends;-).
