  Advice  

Professional investors rely on many of these websites to research potential investments. If you're feeling overwhelmed as a novice investor, take it one decision at a time. Before picking websites, determine what information and features are most important to you. It’s always good to get your information from at least two different sources so you can cross-check opinions and gain a complete understanding of the market and your potential investment. As a general rule of thumb, each stock you buy should only be a maximum of 5% of your total portfolio to minimize your downside risk. Most successful investors follow the “buy and hold” approach and ignore the periodic share price dips.
