5 Tips for New Stock Investors

1.       It doesn't take a lot of money to start investing. Start small.

2.       An easy way to get your feet wet in investing is to start doing it through a company 401k plan. You'll get used to the ups and downs of the stock market this way.

3.       Once you're ready to move into individual stocks, don't get overwhelmed by all the choices. There are two ways to narrow the list down to a manageable number. Tracey takes you through it.

4.       Buy more than one stock. One stock is not enough to be diverse. It's too risky.
