I find myself doing the same thing but mostly just out of beginners curiosity. I enjoy seeing the ups and downs. Being less emotional about it would be beneficial for the long run.

In about two months time, I've amassed a portfolio of 40 stocks. I may downgrade it to 25-30 in the next few months depending on recommendations from the Fool. Most of my stocks are fractions so I am looking forward to putting more money into them monthly.

Overall, this experience is a lot of fun and I have a goal right now to manage a portfolio of over $100,000 within 10 years. I am currently 37 years old and have the option to retire within five years but I will most likely keep working to keep pushing money into my stocks.
