I personally don't look to actively manage my investments. Others choose to do different things. There are lots of boards that have great information on a variety of investing methods...

...Basically I came up with my personal target asset allocation and preferred funds. I then invest in those funds in the appropriate allocation percentage and rebalance 3-4 times a year to get back to my target allocation. My allocation includes a mix of stocks & bonds. When I rebalance my portfolio I am forced to sell things that have gained in value and buy things that have declined in value.

If you don't like to actively manage your investments, Fidelity and others have blended funds like the FFNOX, which is three stock funds and one bond fund. You just fire and forget and they do the re-balancing for you.
