You've always been curious about picking stocks. But the standard advice is stick with mutual funds.
After all, mutual funds give you a lot of diversification for your money.
But given what populates most mutual funds (stocks!), it pays to understand how equities are valued and analyzed. (Or you may have an investment account already, but it needs some fine-tuning.)
The trouble is, some of us would rather change a tire than read about P/E ratios. Isn't there a way to highlight the sexy side of stock-picking?
Funny you should ask! The Motley Fool has a new series called "Stock Picks With Chicks," featuring senior analysts Dayana Yochim and Alyce Lomax.
