Hey Guys, I'm a new Fool and subscriber. I've done a lot of reading here and elsewhere. I manage my personal brokerage account at Fidelity because its where my job keeps our 403b. I have bought some stocks and ETFs in the past but now that I get recommendations from the Fool, I'm confused. Analysis Paralysis. Now I have a few of questions.

What's the best way to use the Fool Stock Advisor? When I find a stock that has been researched and vetted, how do I know how much to buy?
Recommendations come out regularly, am I supposed keep changing out the stocks in my portfolio to be in line with the latest recommendations?

Can a person have too many different stocks? What's a good number? If I were to get a $2000 bonus, should I buy more shares of stocks I already own or should buy new recommended stocks?

Thanks for any advice.


I have a 403b account at my main job and a TSP account from my military job. Are the contribution limits cumulative of both plans or per plan?
