Invest in low-cost ETFs like Vanguard or others to start. They allow you to invest in a basket of stocks and are generally lower cost than mutual funds. You could have some growth ETFs if you are younger or Balanced ETFs if you are mid-way through your working career. Stay away from investing in individual stocks until you have built up a large balance of investment funds, and even then, I would think twice about doing so. Companies like Xerox, Blockbuster video, Sears, and many more at one time dominated their markets but now they have largely disappeared, and so would have your investments in them.
