If you do not want to research, you can just watch Cramer on CNBC at 6:00 or 9:00 in the evening. I have made a bit of money from his picks by just putting them in a list and buying and selling when the technical indicators say to. Most recent good pick is Birch Mountain, BMD, up big time today.

If you are buying stocks, I think that you should have at least 5 stocks, and preferably around 20. I generally have 40-50.
