I am a beginner and having difficulty understanding the compounding investment. My understanding is that I am supposed to hold the stock for the long term but to benefit from the compounding interest rate, I have to use the earning to reinvest in the same stock, but how can that happen if I am holding the stock?

Also, I have another question about the suggested 25 stocks strategy. I am planning to buy the new recommended stocks every month. This means in about two years; I would have 25 stocks. What should I do after that? Should I start another cycle of 25 stocks, or should I add to the already existing ones?
