Hi Omaj!

Welcome to Pro! Woo woo!

Here are a few thoughts:

-- It is really up to you and your comfort level on buying the Pro stocks. There is a lot of great information here via the recommendations, the updates, and the stocks' boards to help you learn about the companies. Pro's recommendations tab with fair value estimates is always a nice list to review from time to time.

-- Selling puts can be a lot of fun, but that's more of an income tool. Think about what is best for you for your investing goals, making the income with a chance to get shares or buying shares outright. The answer is up to you.

-- There is no rush to put your whole Pro portfolio together, so don't feel bad at all abut taking your time. When you are ready, then you are making a commitment to the company hopefully for 3 - 5 years or longer. Hopefully the long term will reduce the impact of small daily / weekly price fluctuations.

-- One thing that helps me a lot here at Pro and over at Options is to read the materials more than once, and sometimes I make notes, especially with options trades that have important details. Taking the time to understand the team's thinking can help grow confidence in the positions and prevent mistakes.

Good luck and have fun! Please ask as many questions as you want!
