As a beginner looking to enter the stock market, are there any obvious rules of thumb on what to look for in a good stock?

As an alternative, you could invest through places like Betterment or Wealthfront. They are low-cost (Wealthfront even manages your money for free up to $10,000, I think), and they automatically diversify your money among index funds and bonds in order to generate the best mix for you. It’s literally just plug-and-play; no strategies or complicated research needed.

I second Liran’s suggestion: index funds!!! Lowest management fees, diversification, and lowest tax impact all wrapped up in one investment vehicle!

I recommend sticking to index funds. If you try to pick stocks, keep in mind you are competing with people who do that as their full time job, and have scoured every detail of every press release and earnings report from that company.
