The market is so volatile on any given day it's best to just diversify and invest for the long-term, especially if you don't know what you're doing.

My point is just to avoid those newsletters altogether and do your own research. Dykstra got a 60 minutes interview, he had Jim Cramer praising him, and the whole thing went belly up and last I heard Dykstra was bankrupt. People who are touted as experts rarely are.

I'm in the same boat. I wanted to start of slow and small so I just have 5k in mutual funds right now. Current value is at 6.2k. It's on high risk and I'm planning to keep it long term, 10+ years or whenever I actually need it.

What else could I do?

If anyone is interested in stocks, read the three books Peter Lynch wrote, the references in the books are from the 90's but his advice on how to research and build your own portfolio is still applicable today.

market is way too volatile to just fuck around with in this day and age. unless you guys really know what you're doing, i recommend starting small and doing some readings like jaded said. you could easily lose all 10k by making some dumbass trades that you hear from somewhere online. take a class in finance whether it's valuations or investments, learn to analyze financial statements, cash flows, etc then start trading. till then don't fuck around with your money like that.

Being able to read a balance sheet is really important. The book I'm reading now called Beating the Street by Peter Lynch explains what to look for and also how some companies hide debt on their balance sheets to appear stronger. Pretty good book so far.

high yielding REIT's are the way to go with the housing market bottoming and the Fed guaranteed interest rates at 0% through 2015. the Fed also announced recently in its QE3 they will be purchasing 40million in mortgage backed securities EACH month.

I have position in MFA currently, 0.23 dividend cool and it is testing its 52wk highs. lookout for a breakout

let me break shit down to you in a nut shell.

long-term investing is the safest / best way to make money in the stock market. 

short term will butt fuck you with the taxes and also the trade payments.

also, quantity or quality.

don't buy 10 shares of apple or google when you can buy 300 shares of a company that you believe will succeed.

10x 700 = 7k, apple goes up 100 dollars and you only made 1k.

300 x 23 dollars is about 7k. now that company releases some good news, grows and you're looking at 45 dollars a stock or doubling your money. 

plus its more likely for a company to double at like 20 dllars then for google to double at 700 

Be about it

Agreed, but most of the people on here not really into analyzing companies.

If you want to play with stocks, just invest in indices (much safer).

only invest in what your familiar with. Sure some people make a lot off investing in some random stock that has sudden huge growth but thats such a small percentage of people.
