I think you should take a look at the Foolish Four, buying four stocks out of the Dow 30 (based on a pretty straightforward formula) that you can see on this website and understand the underlying reasoning for doing that. Over time, this method of investing apparently generates a return above 20%. However, I think it critically important that you understand how this investment strategy works. I am going to begin using it in my Roth IRA in January after I get out of my mutual fund with the 1.96 expense ratio. I am a little new at this and the biggest thing I have had to tell myself is to hold off until I understand better what I am doing, so my 2 cents worth would be to check out the Foolish Four but hold off on individual stocks until you are understand how and what is involved in investing in individual stocks, it does take time, effort and courage. Good luck
