Hello Motleybaluga,

I joined Stock Advisor almost a year ago and I was thinking much like you. I didn't understand why all the stocks were so expensive, I thought I needed to buy a lot of shares, and I didn't think I had enough $ to make a difference.
I have learned a lot by listening to MF podcasts, The Morning Show and all the other streaming programs.
And I learned what the other repliers have said, that 10% on $1000 is $100, if you one 1 share or 100 shares. Also, learning what I signed up for in Stock Advisor, they do not recommend new companies. They recommend a companies with more a track record.
I believe that Motley Fool has (or had) services that recommend newer companies. I remember when I first started being a member they were starting a service called "fire crackers". They were newer companies with lower starting prices. If you haven't already, maybe you could contact the member services and see if there is a service(s) that better fit your desired investing style.
Also, I found that they have a separate company Motley Fool Asset Management,
they have some ETFs that are fairly new and entry price is still pretty low.
Good Luck!
