Can I start a foolish four portfolio with this small amount? Please help me. I know this is short term fluctuation, but I know I could be doing better on my own. But do I haveenough to get started!

I reply:

Try accumulating your money in an S&P Index fund until you have about $4,000. Then you can move the $4,000 into FF picks. Continue accumulating the S&P Index fund until you have your next $2,000, which should be about the time you are ready to adjust your original FF holdings. Rebalance every 12 months and you should be in good shape.
