    Stay away from individual stocks and buy index funds

    It's rigged. If you're not an insider, ie a stockbroker doing microtrading, fuck it.

    Mix it up with individual stocks and index funds.

    Do your homework, study your broker harder than the stocks he suggests. Check & see if he has any SEC claims of malfeasance. Ask what his REI ratio is for the last 5 years. Of course you'll want to know what his trade fees are and any maintenance fees. Depend on what level you are going in at will determine what level of Broker you're going to see. A small first time investor isn't going to be sitting down with a VP at Merrill Lynch. No matter, your broker should take the time to find out what your investing goals are before suggesting anything. Good Luck

    Stick to Fortune 500 companies. Don't look for short term gains
